VALUES

We maintain that great taste should be at the heart of a great spirit, and that ‘good enough’ isn’t good enough. Our values make us who we are, and we’re quite different to the rest.

TASTE

We are driven first and foremost to make the best spirits we possibly can: spirits to be savoured for their taste, not just their alcohol content. After all, good food & drink are some of life’s greatest pleasures.

EPICUREAN ADVENTURE 

We believe everyone should enjoy truly fine spirits; that’s why we craft ours to be sipped neat. We encourage epicurean adventures, a story in every sip. 

 

GENEROUSLY SHARED 

Food and drink is all about the pleasure of a shared experience. You don’t need to drink copious amounts to have a good time, but it can always be had with good company.

 

PRODUCED WITH PASSION

We don’t do things by halves, we do rich, brilliant flavours, crafting sensory journeys: from the first scent of aroma to the long, lingering mouthful. That’s our ‘Taste First’ guarantee.

QUALITY

We believe you deserve the best, nothing less. We’re committed to making the best spirits we possibly can, and setting a new quality standard for how glorious spirits can be.

OUR EXPERIENCE 

Our team is led by Dr John Walters, with over 30,000 distilling experience beneath his belt over the past decade, progressing the science of distilling with world-first techniques. 

 

MADE TO PERFECTION

We pay an extraordinary amount of attention when distilling, to harness the best flavours from the alcohol vapours. Going beyond separating heads, hearts and tails, ensuring the process receives the attention it deserves. 

 

AUTHENTICALLY ARTISAN  

We’re proud to be an independent distillery, having received a plethora of national and international awards. We love working with the best, which is why we carefully select our suppliers, and work with contract clients.

INNOVATION

We continue to pioneer and develop the distilling process, a steadfast value from the early days of English Spirit. Drawing on distilling expertise from past and present, we have added our own insights in our quest to be the best.

SCIENCE BEHIND THE TASTE 

True to Dr John’s background in biochemistry, every single drop of our spirits is crafted using distilling techniques of our own invention; from flavour extraction to accelerating the barrel aging process of dark spirits. 

 

DOING THE IMPOSSIBLE 

From pioneering the UK’s first commercially distilled rum, to being the first British distillery to produce sambuca and baijua, it’s in our spirit to boldly go where no one has gone before. 

 

OUR PRODUCT RANGE

We dare to do things differently, with a love of developing new products. We distil the UK’s widest variety of spirit & liqueurs, taking pleasure in surprising customers with exclusive ranges and new products.
