Bitter-sweet herbal liqueur
Amaro is a family of herbal apéritif liqueurs that originate from Italy, amaro is Italian for bitter. These liqueurs are used as an important part of popular cocktails.
Madame Jennifer's Sussex Amaro is made at our distillery in Hove from a distinct blend of 14 botanicals, pure cane sugar and English wheat spirit.
Serve with lemonade or soda for a refreshing long drink. Or use alongside our gin and a quality vermouth for a classic Negroni.
Oak Aged Gin
Crafted from a specially distilled dry gin, with strong notes of orange, cinnamon and allspice.
Aged by resting on charred vintage French and American oak giving colour, a rich smokey flavour and a mellow vanilla sweetness.
This Oak Aged Gin is produced in very small batches and is rested for 7 months. Availability is limited and each bottle is numbered.
Best gently sipped neat or over ice. It is a fantastic replacement for whiskey in cocktails. Try it in an Old Fashioned!
Madame Jennifer Bubble-Plate Vodka has a smooth creamy character and a hint of caramel.
Made with 100% English wheat spirit, nothing else added.
During distillation, our English wheat spirit evaporates and passes through each of the six copper bubble-plates in turn. Each time the gas passes through a bubble-plate, it condenses back to a liquid and drips back down the still column. Only the cleanest of spirits make it to the top of the sixth bubble-plate. This is collected to make our exceptionally smooth vodka.
Pair with Madame Jennifer Cold-Brew Coffee Liqueur for an amazing Espresso Martini!

Serra da Canastra, Brazil
Cold-Brew Coffee Liqueur
Deliciously smooth with a mellow sweetness.
We have worked with local coffee experts at 44 Poets Speciality Coffee to find the perfect ethically sourced coffee, and identify the perfect extraction process for this smooth liqueur. Their shop is in Poets' Corner, Hove. Just around the corner from the distillery!
Paulo Henrique Cruz has a small coffee farm in the mountainous Serra da Canastra micro-region, nestled between the large coffee regions in Brazil. We've used the Yellow Icatu variety from his farm, grown at 1185 meters altitude and prepared using natural processes.
The coffee beans are expertly roasted by Craft House Coffee a speciality small-batch coffee roaster, based just outside of Brighton. Accurately ground for our special 20-hour cold-brew extraction method to produce a mellow, less bitter coffee taste. Blended with distilled English wheat spirit and Demerara sugar syrup for a refined, smooth liqueur.
Drink neat, over ice, in an Espresso Martini, or it makes an amazing Tiramisu!
It's amazingly lemony!
The zest from organic lemons is slowly steeped in English wheat spirit to release the delicious essential oils. The zesty spirit is then mixed with sugar and pure water to find the perfect bittersweet balance.
The organic lemons are hand peeled, ensuring that we get only the zest and none of the bitter pith. Therefore, we have to add less sugar so it is not sticky-sweet but wonderfully balanced.
2020 Christmas Gin is Here!
Our first Christmas gin, launched for Christmas 2018, proved to be very popular! Distilled with loads of sweet and bitter orange, nutmeg, cinnamon coriander and allspice. This is an opulent and warming gin with hints of Christmas cake, Christmas pudding and mulled wine!
Often described as "Christmas in a bottle", it is bottled at 43% abv to hold in all the orange flavour, and makes a lovely winter G&T.
This recipe has been perfected over 20 years!
We've always been disappointed in the sloe gins available in the shops, they've never matched up to our recipe! So we've stuck to that for Madame Jennifer Sloe Gin.
Hand-picked Sussex sloes are infused over many months. Most sloe gins are at about 25% abv. Ours is a hearty 40% so it's very warming and not too sweet.
The 2020 batch has just been bottled!
