Where do we start?


Bespoke Recipe Development

Drop our distillery team a message and we’ll arrange a convenient time to discuss your ideas.  We’ll make some suggestions and once the overall style and ingredients are approved, we’ll craft a sample bottle or two on our five-litre traditional copper alembic still, Little Flo.

We have an extensive collection of ingredients & flavours and love a creative challenge so use your imagination, or let our creative team match a gin to your brand and define your gin style & flavours for you!

Label Design & Bottle

We have a very successful and established product designer who can craft your labels for you, or you can take care of the design in-house.  We will provide necessary legal information and will proof the label for legal compliance before it goes to print.

You can bottle your bespoke batch of gin in several bottle formats and you can use our existing bottle range or bring in your own unique bottle shape from one of our recommended suppliers.  We currently keep stock of 70, 50, 20 and 5CL bottles.

Ordering & Deposit

Our traditional copper still Florence can craft a gin batch as small as 20-25 litres (approximately 30-36 standard size bottles).  Once the initial consultancy is completed and the gin project signed off & approved we would require a 50% deposit to confirm production.

Once the deposit is paid, the gin distillation will be programmed into our production schedule.  We usually turn bespoke gin projects around in five working days from receipt of deposit.
