Welcome to the online home of the Dancing Cows Brewery and Distillery.

We are on a mission to excite your senses. Beers and malt liquors made with local barley. Gins, rums and vodkas infused with fresh seasonal botanicals, fruits and flowers. We are big into tradition but we also know that evolution is essential – we have no sacred cows, just Dancing Cows.


We started brewing in Lancashire in 2003 before selling the business to one of our customers and we moved to Lymington on the South Coast of England in 2014. Initially, we wanted to set up a gin distillery but a trip to Lake Michigan reignited our passion for craft beer and gave us new horizons on distilled spirits. In early 2015, we set up a small-batch craft brewery and distillery with the aim of producing a range of beers and spirits with local provenance and a fresh, new view on brewing and distilling.

Our grains will come from a farm just a couple of miles away along the coastal path. We plan to use some wild hops that grow next to the Ancient Highway that joins us to the tiny port of Keyhaven and local fruits, flowers, herbs, spices and botanicals will all be added to the steeping tanks and stills.

    Your dancing cows Lymington gin is by far one of the best gins I have ever tasted. I bought it from Lyndhurst the other day. I wish I lived closer so I could get hold of it more easily. It shall replace the water in my diet!!!

      Thanks for your feedback – it’s great to know that you enjoyed it so much. We are hoping to start selling our spirits a bit further afield in the next month or two so if you know of any potential outlets near you then please put in a good word for us….and let us know who they are so we can approach them!

    Enjoyed drinking Pony at The Monkey House a while back – Wonderful Drinkable Ale!

    Can I fill my keg (4 pints) directly from your Brewery? What cost?

    I live in Sway.


    Kind Regards

    Delicious. On April 30, I (old man with young Japanese daughter) bought a pack of pale ale and IPA from you at your stall in Lymington. Tastes even better than the samples. Distinctive. Different from other brewers’ ales.
    I hope you will be successful: you deserve to be.

    Bought your gin yesterday from you, it’s gorgeous. Such complex flavours, and smooth. We did a taste test with my favourite brand & yours won hands down – 3 votes to 0.

    Just had a wonderful meal at ‘The Elderflower’ in Lymington, accompanied by a couple of bottles of your equally wonderful American IPA, just got back to Wokingham to search for your beer if it’s sold locally to me, is it? Would love to get some more.
