Some Feedback

We like to receive feedback – good or bad. A customer recently bought a bottle of our London Dry Gin for a friend for Christmas but unfortunately it didn’t arrive. After resolving the issue with the customer we received the following “Thanks so much for sorting this out – you’ve been so helpful and I’m grateful and will continue to drink your gin as it’s my absolute favourite!“. When asked if it was ok for us to post the feedback the customer said “Absolutely, that’s perfectly fine! I wouldn’t drink any other gin!“. 


Chosen Charity 2023

We have chosen to keep The Movement Centre as our charity for 2023

In the early years we did not have a specific charity we were supporting. Since 2022, however, we have chosen The Movement Centre. The Movement Centre is a UK charity and specialist treatment centre dedicated to supporting children and their families living with movement disabilities.

To raise funds we released a range of Platinum Jubilee Edition spirits in 2022, took donations during tasting events, and co-sponsored their annual golf day amongst other things. We are still developing our support plans for 2023 but one thing is for sure – you’ll see a Henstone Distillery Golf Team at the annual golf day!!
