Finally, after 3 long years, our first whisky has started flowing! The first bottling batch had been mainly pre-sold and then the remaining bottles were snapped up from our online shop within hours of release. We are about to bottle from the next cask and these bottles will go on sale very soon. We expect these bottles to sell out too, but over the coming months we will be emptying casks as they hit the 3 + year mark. Keep an eye on our website and social media if you wish to grab a bottle as and when they become available.

Henstone Distillery Navy Gin Wins Silver Medal

Our Henstone Navy Gin won a Silver Medal in the London Spirits Competition 2020!

The London Spirits Competition state that “In contrast to other spirits competitions, where distilling ability and technical expertise sometimes receive primary consideration at the expense of drinkability, the goal of the London Spirits Competition was to award and celebrate the spirits that spirits drinkers actually want to buy, whether at a retail store or ordering off the menu at a London restaurant.”

“The authority that an award from the London Spirits Competition brings, comes from the power of being judged across quality, value and appearance, the high quality of the judges and the intensely competitive product set. We are extremely delighted that our Henstone Navy Gin performed so well.” said Chris Toller. “This Silver medal demonstrates that we are making the types of spirits that bar managers and mixologists want to use and spirits drinkers enjoy choosing and drinking.”

UK based distillery producing Gin, Whisky, Vodka and Brandy

Established in 2017

Following years of planning we got our distillery up and running in 2017. Our aim is and always will be to produce high quality spirits for discerning drinkers. Please take a look around our site and learn about us, our products and techniques and of course, where you can buy our fabulous spirits.

As a gin distillery we brought our first product to market in March 2018 and have won some great awards since.

Our whisky production commenced in December 2017. We filled our very first barrel with new make spirit in January 2018! We’ve been busy filling lots more barrels since and now look forward to our very first batch being bottled in January 2021. We hope you can celebrate this event with us.

From the start we planned to produce a ‘British Bourbon’ and achieved this on 28 January 2020 when we launched our Old Dog Corn Liquor This was a limited batch of 300 bottles and is now almost sold out! The next batch has been distilled and is maturing but it will not be available for quite a few months. So if you’re interested in a bottle from the first batch please get in touch as soon as you can.
