Calm Your Nerves at Psycho Path with its Bloody Gin Liqueur

Psycho Path, the North East's largest and scariest Halloween attraction is back for another year. And this time it's four times the size of last year's sold out event.

Psycho Path presents Fearground takes place on selected nights from 11th to 31st October 2019, offering four experiences.

They include Anarchy Arcade which will offer live entertainment and a range of food and drink offerings and a new addition – iScream – where visitors will have to navigate a terrifying maze and come face to face with a range of horrific characters.

To calm the nerves of those with enough courage to brave the experience, organiser 700 Acres Ltd has joined forces with Sunderland-based Poetic License Distillery to create a suitably blood red gin liqueur, which will be sold at the site’s bars and merchandise shop.

The limited edition liqueur, which can be served with tonic water or added to prosecco to create a spritzer, is flavoured with raspberries and citrus along with botanicals such as juniper, coriander seed and pink peppercorns. And they hope it will give Dutch courage to event-goers as they navigate through the various elements of Psycho Path 2019.

This year the park’s main attraction, the Psycho Path trail, returns with a new route. Event goers are transported through dense woodland in blacked out vans and left in an area of secluded farmland which is home to abandoned buildings and terrifying characters.

From there, they head through Psycho City, a post-apocalyptic environment with makeshift structures, burning barrels and the last surviving inhabitants lurking in the shadows.

For those in need of light relief, also new this year is Anarchy Arcade, which will offer a range of entertainment every night, such as aerial artists, magicians, fire breathers and fairground rides.

It will also house street food and drink vendors, where visitors will be able to buy a glass of the Psycho Path gin – or snap up a bottle.

Although the current production run has been limited to 500 bottles, Nigel Holliday of 700 Acres Ltd said he hopes it will prove so popular that it will become a permanent fixture at the site.

“This collaboration with Poetic License has been a genuine pleasure,” he said. “They are a great team to work with and they just grasped immediately what we were looking for.

“Considerable expertise has gone into creating this gin. It looks great but, more importantly, it tastes fantastic and I think it’s going to be a big hit with our visitors.”

Psycho Path gin is available at the event’s merchandise shop or at www.poeticlicensedistillery.co.uk at a cost of £19.95 per 50cl bottle.
