Inspired by history, handcrafted with passion

We’re an independent family business with a passion for producing spirits that are authentically made in the way that they are advertised. We’ve been hand-crafting our own gin in small batches since early 2016 in our seaside hometown of West Kirby, Wirral, near to the historic cities of Chester and Liverpool. The quality of our gin is a testament to our principles:

  • Provenance: we only use natural ingredients and we source our botanicals as locally as possible
  • Authentically small-batch: we produce around 40 bottles at a time, each one with passion and care to make it truly special
  • Genuinely artisan: we independently produce our own gin and each bottle is individually filled, labelled, wax sealed and numbered by hand

The botanical recipes we develop each have a story, inspired by our British heritage and the natural world around us. It took a year to develop the formula which became the basis of the recipe for our signature international award-winning Darkside Gin.

Discover our unique, distinct, complex spirits

Let us take you on a journey through time...

...to a world of clandestine parties and secret speakeasies. Our gin presents the rediscovery of a lost style of gin production using a process known as compounding. We have brought compound gin out of the Prohibition Era and into the 21st Century using artisanal methods and high quality natural ingredients to deliver spirits that are distinctively complex and full of flavour.

Working to carefully designed botanical recipes, we ensure our spirits retain a deep complexity of aroma and a full flavoured body otherwise lost through distillation. Through delicate filtration, our spirits retain the intensity of their flavour and natural amber hue.

Imitation may be the greatest form of flattery...

...but we don't imitate, we innovate. Each of our spirits has a unique, individual story to tell. The botanicals we use reflect our British heritage and the natural world around us. With juniper at the heart of all we do, we’re steadfastly true to the very definition of a British gin. We don't use artificial colours, flavourings or added sugar. Our spirits are distinctively complex, full bodied and flavoursome. And, they're incredibly versatile when it comes to serve: from the traditional G&T through to classic or more modern cocktails.
