Our Spirits

The spiritual journey began in 2016 with a gin & tonic in
an airport bar and a desire for a new direction in life.

Today, we are the first legal distillery in Lincoln since Victorian times, home to Lincoln Gin and a growing product range.

Lincoln Gin, our London Dry, is made in small batches using traditional handmade, copper alembic, pot stills. We take great pride in our work and to ensure every bottle is perfect before it leaves the distillery. Each and every bottle is filled, labelled and wax sealed at the distillery by us by hand. Ten carefully chosen botanicals go into Lincoln Gin.

Recipe inspiration came from the history and nature of our local area and includes elderflower growing on the commons, liquorice root from Liquorice Park and beetroot as a nod to a former distillery in the City. Lincoln Gin is thought to be the only London dry gin to use the superfood beetroot as a botanical.

The label incorporates the City of Lincoln’s iconic coat of arms used with special permission from the Mayor’s office. Tradition and Heritage is very important to us and the Lincoln Gin range will reflect this by sticking to traditional gin categories.

With those traditional categories in mind, an exciting addition is our Cask Aged Gin. We fill 20 litre oak casks with Lincoln Gin and lay them down for around three months, in which time a great deal of flavour and colour, from the wood, imparts into the spirit.

A further addition to the Lincoln Gin range is Navy Strength. Traditionally bottled at 57% Vol. This was to ensure that if your ships barrels of gin ration were struck by an enemy cannonball, soaking your powder kegs, its high strength (or proof) being flammable would still ignite your gunpowder allowing you to return fire!
