Our London Dry Gin is made in tiny batches of a maximum of 25 bottles per batch. This means that we can produce a supreme quality product from the distillation to bottling and labelling - everything we do is done by hand.
Back in August 2018 Jonny came home from a busy shift in the kitchen and declared "We're going to make gin!" Natalie heard the word gin to which her automatic response is "yes please". After a period of experimenting and research we realised that we had both the skills and access to amazing botanical ingredients surrounding us here on the knapp to create a fantastic London Dry Gin. Shortly after this our very first gin 'Wild Knapp Gin' was born.
We emptied an outbuilding that was previously used for storage and purchased our first small still. When we say we are a small batch micro-distillery, we really mean it with each batch being a maximum 25 bottles.
We started to experiment with fruit and herbs grown on the land surrounding the distillery; known locally as the knapp. The ingredients we use include quince, apples, pears, thyme, bay, rosemary, rose petals and elderberries. We also cut our gin to bottle strength using our own spring water. After many late nights and interesting combinations we found what we thought was a winner. Everything we do is hand crafted from distilling the gin itself to bottling and labelling each bottle.
