Hydropathic Pudding: based on the original Victorian dessert (and name) for summer fruit pudding, that was historically served in hydro hotels, spas or to those suffering sickness, developed by the Liverpool School of Cookery in 1902.
Gin-based fruit cup
Hydropathic Pudding is an artisan fruit cup (English speciality drink), inspired by Liverpool’s Victorian past, hand-crafted from start to finish. We create our own gin to use as the base and infuse 7Kg of real, fresh, fruit in every batch of 40 bottles. There are no artificial flavours, colours or added sugar. The resulting tipple has a delightful red hue, and each 50cl bottle is individually filled, labelled and wax sealed by hand. At 32% ABV, Hydropathic Pudding is one of the strongest fruit cups on the UK market but this gives it a fuller flavour.
A fine fruit basket of redcurrants, blackcurrants, strawberries and raspberries is infused in our gin base to deliver a burst of juicy sweetness – perfect for restoring a weary constitution.
