How it all began
A small still and the start of a business plan. Not exactly what we’d expected to come home with from a camping trip to the Outer Hebrides. A very different kind of souvenir.
So inspired were we by the islands’ artisan gin-makers that we’d soon be swapping our desks for the distillery and trading the daily commute for foraging in the open air.
Having never distilled anything before, we had a lot to learn. But, what we lacked in experience we made up for with passion and dedication. Our vision was to create a quality gin which would celebrate the diverse natural landscape of the place we’re lucky enough to call home.
It didn’t take long to establish our signature botanicals: heather foraged from the North York Moors, sugar kelp and local honey, each selected to champion one element of the North Yorkshire coastline.
With our core ingredients finalised we set about developing an extensive library of flavours. Family and friends (bravely) offered to help taste-test until, finally, we found the perfect combination.
