Helen Browning’s family has farmed at Eastbrook Farm for 65+ years and takes pride in forward-thinking farming methods, seeking out ways to farm that are as good as they possibly can be for people, farm animals and nature. In this way, the farm has been experimenting with agroforestry. The farm, therefore, is an oasis of wild birds, deer and a vibrant insect population alongside free-range livestock that all thrive among the pollen and flowers of sea buckthorn, dog rose, wild crab apple and pear trees in the agroforestry and 50 miles of hedgerows.
CEO of the Soil Association, Helen Browning says, “Our farm is at the heart of everything we do. Our agroforestry project is already making a positive impact on the soil on which we depend and the wildlife that live on the land. Now, excitingly, we can capture Eastbrook Farm in a bottle – and it’s delicious!”

British gin from a forest garden
|Organic Blackcurrant Sylvan Spirits||
A rich and full-bodied spirit bursting with aromatic blackcurrants harvested from agroforestry on Helen’s organic family farm in Wiltshire. This innovative version of a classic cassis has less sugar added for a brighter, fresher taste.
The punchy notes of juniper are really bolstered by rich fruity blackcurrant in the sweet-sour combo. Keep short and intense if you wish, or top with soda or ginger beer if you fancy a longer vibrant serve.
If you have fresh blackcurrants to hand, try muddling them in gin before mixing. Put a few berries in a glass, gin added. With the end of a wooden spoon gently squash the berries to release some of their juice. Pour gin in your cocktail shakes and continue with the recipe.
- 50ml Gin
- 25ml Blackcurrant Spirit
- 15ml Lemon Juice
- 25ml Sugar Syrup (or 1 tablespoon of sugar and 25ml of water)
- Fresh blackcurrants or blackberries to garnish, optional
- Mint, optional
Mix the gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup (or water and sugar) in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a glass filled with ice. Add the blackcurrant spirit slowly pouring down the inside edges of the glass.
