Flavour First

Our distillery in the heart of Bristol is considered to be "Britain's most innovative distillery" (- Master of Malt)"". Our highly motivated team work long and hard to get as much great flavour into their spirits as they possibly can. To achieve this we use organic mash bills, beer and wine yeast, and long open fermentations. Spirits are matured in a variety of ways using a variety of woods. We use first fill ex-bourbon casks, virgin casks, seasoned casks and charred english oak spindles. Maturation is all about a balance between the new make spirit and the wood. We are very proud of our flavoursome new makes and as such some releases are considerably "younger" than traditional whiskies or grain spirits. We believe it's ready when it's ready.

If you cant do something sustainably its questionable whether you should be doing it at all.

We take sustainability very seriously and we can prove it. We are certified by the Biodynamic Association as an organic producer and certified by Carbon Neutral Britain as a carbon neutral business.

We hate waste. All of our used grains are sent to a local farm as cow feed. We also accept bottles returned to us for reuse, offer 5L refill cartons to all our on-trade customers and much more.
