"We consider ourselves to be the UK's only super-premium contract distilling service."

- Dr John Walters

Purchase of bulk denatured alcohol (TSDA)

In reaction to high demand and short supply of hand sanitiser due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) we are ramping up production of bulk denatured alcohol to be supplied under contract. We are working to achieve a maximum of 5 working day turnaround, with minimum order quantity of 1000 litres.

One of the secrets to our distilling expertise and experience is the contract distilling side of our business. In addition to producing the English Spirit collection, we work with roughly thirty partner brands at any one time to produce bespoke, scratch distilled spirits & liqueurs on their behalf.

Over the last eight years, we have won over 100 international medals for ourselves and our partners: including best gin, best vodka and best rum in the world.


We don't produce 'off the shelf' products; everything is produced to a unique standard depending on the client's specification.

We distil vodkas, gins, rums, brandies, single malts, sambucas, and brand new spirits, jointly invented between ourselves and our partners. We also produce an enormous variety of liqueurs. Our spirits are ordinarily smooth enough after distillation to not require ageing: but we do age spirits in a variety of woods, including multiple types of oak.


Every one of our spirits is distilled in no larger than 200 litre copper pots; truly small batch: although we can process orders anywhere from 500 to over 10,000 litres in one order: offering scalability to suit all needs.

We specialise in offering an 'end to end' service: from initial consultation and product development to shipping finished product: with all aspects in between. All aspects of the service may be tailored to suit requirements: including filling, labelling and packing.

As part of our consultation service, we can provide guidance on:

  • Recipe & product development; whether developing from scratch or incorporating specific ingredients of the client's choosing

  • Commercial information; including wholesale and retail margins

  • A thorough and unique understanding of the market, including insight into past, present and future trends

  • Full understanding of laws, regulations and taxes regarding spirits and liqueurs

  • UK export logistics
