Our Process

A gin inspired by history and created through innovation.

The stark contrast between land and sea has been our greatest source of inspiration; from the botanicals we use to flavour Whitby Gin to the packaging and design. In order to capture the diversity of native botanicals, we explore the rugged coastline and dip below the ocean surface to find those enchanting ingredients. 

 

Authentic craftsmanship is at the heart of what we do. There is the human touch in all stages of our process. 

 

The grain spirit is hand pumped in to our copper column stills named, Stanley, Stockwell and Scripps before our selected botanicals are added.  We use a mix of the traditional elements including Juniper, Coriander Seed, Citrus Peels and Liquorice Root. Along with sustainably foraged Heather tip from the North York Moors, Sugar Kelp from Robin Hood Bay and raw honey from a local Bee Keeper. 

 

We ensure the highest quality gin is produced in a single pass of the still and follow a single shot London Dry Gin distillation process. Our copper reflux still allows us to capture only the finest alcohol, offering a superior quality product.

 

Our gin is hand distilled in small batches. We fill, label and package each of our bottles by hand.

 

A town which was once home to artful smugglers, inquisitive explorers, fearless sailors is now the birthplace of Whitby Gin .
