Our Lymington Gin is the Hampshire Life Drinks Product of the Year for 2016!
It is a robust, flavoursome 43% gin made with nine botanicals and then infused with hops. It can be found in pubs, restaurants, hotels and shops throughout the New Forest and beyond.
We also have an oak-aged gin and an apple vodka in stock alongside our range of craft beers and cask ales.
Our latest venture is the creation of a rye liquor aged on oak in steel. It is brewed like a beer – fermented slowly and transferred clear into the still. We only take the very heart of the distillation run and we accelerate the aging with ultrasound, temperature and forced aeration. European law says that we can’t call it ‘whisky’ because it hasn’t been aged in oak for three years and a day but when something tastes this good then who cares about European law?
Rum is next – a rich golden rum produced with cane sugar and molasses and aged on oak in steel again for added character.
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 come from a farm just a couple of miles away along the coastal path, and we use locally foraged angelica seeds in our gins. As time goes on, we want to use more and more of the fruits, herbs, spices and bounty around us in our spirits and beers.
