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

- Dr John Walters

Since 2012, we’ve used our distilling experience to produce world class spirits for a variety of British brands. We work with clients of all sizes: from startups and boutiques, right the way through to well loved household names. Leading fruit and vegetable growers, preserve makers, breweries, vineyards, cideries, tea blenders, and even explorers. The best in their respective fields, we are proud to work closely with them in our mission to be the best in ours. Think of our style as that of Japanese craftsmanship with English flair; or, as we have been told, the 'Rolls Royce' of distilling. In short: if you’re looking for the best, you’ve come to the right place.

Our 5cl miniature filling machine in action

We distil vodkas, gins, rums, brandies, single malts, liqueurs, and more: including brand new spirits, jointly invented between ourselves and our clients. We can distil nearly any spirit from a wide variety of base ingredients. We can produce low alcohol spirits, and RTD (ready to drink) products. All recipes are bespoke and created entirely to the client's specification. The vast majority of our clients go on to win at least one prestigious international award within the first 12 months of release.

Every one of our spirits is distilled in no larger than 200 litre copper pots stills, customised by us to suit our requirements. Our minimum order quantity is 500 litres. However, with 20 stills, state of the art equipment and an experienced production team, we are optimised for orders of all sizes, whether 500 litres or 50,000 litres.

Our distillery is uniquely placed to offer the experience of a large operation, with the attention to detail and maneuverability of a small operation. This gives ‘the best of both worlds’ and the flexibility to deliver your project to the best standard possible. Where required, our team can turn a project around within weeks, and we can work with a huge variety of pack sizes. Our equipment ranges from the traditional to state of the art. We are ISO9001 certified, which demonstrates our commitment to quality standards at every touchpoint.
