Black pudding is a quintessential Irish breakfast food and combined with apple it has a sweet yet savoury bite. Wrapped in some tasty puff pastry makes it easy to share with friends and family and goes so well with the spicy yet sweet Maharani gin.

Founded by Robert & Bhagya Barrett, Rebel City Distillery is situated in the heart of Cork’s historic Docklands, and will produce a range of premium spirits which draw inspiration from around the world. Maharani Gin celebrates a fusion of Cork and Keralite cultures. Robert comes from Cork, Ireland and Bhagya comes from Kerala, India.

Maharani is at the forefront of a new style of gin, a balanced mix of spice, citrus and sweetness rather than a juniper, pine forward traditional gin. Maharani Gin celebrates our founders’ roots, hand crafted in Cork, Ireland, with botanicals from Kerala, India.

Like Maharani Gin these recipes are inspired by cross-cultural connections using quality Irish produce with a little twist. Today we will show Black Pudding & Apple Sausage Rolls. Why not try them at your next Christmas gathering or a wonderful weekend brunch idea.
