Burnley is home to both our wonderful gin of the month, Batch, and the largest single consumer of Bénédictine: The Burnley Miners Social Club. The Lancashire regiments apparently got a taste for this herbal liqueur in the First World War, so it was only fitting that Batch would craft this delicious cocktail in tribute to this "proud drinking tradition" and their roots.
