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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
