Shakespeare Distillery, Stratford upon Avon
Muddy says: An independent Warwickshire artisan distillery producing award-winning gin in small handcrafted batches inspired by authentic Tudor garden botanicals.
Established in 2015, this innovative independent Warwickshire artisan distillery currently produces three gins fusing Tudor garden botanicals created in small handcrafted batches with modern techniques. They are: the award-winning Stratford Gin, a Juniper-led modern ‘London dry’ gin with a twist of history, delicious herbal notes and a burst of floral and citrus; Mulberry Gin, combining Mulberries with Stratford Gin and entirely natural Rhubarb Gin, blending fresh Rhubarb juice with Stratford Gin.
In January 2019 the owners – gin fan, founder and head distiller Simon Picken and qualified Astrophysicist Peter Monks – moved into new bigger premises and now offer one-hour Distillery tours, run a Gin School, Stratford Gin Festival in the Topiary garden at Billesley Manor Hotel on Sunday July 7 and newly launched 40-minute Gin Cruises on the River Avon.
