The Master Distiller says

My second favourite: I know you shouldn’t have favourites — it’s a very gentle gin, complex and delicate, a joy to create, a wealth of extraordinary spices.

The botanicas are the finest juniper, coriander, angelica root, orris, lemon and orange, all enriched by delicate and exotic spices: almond, caraway, nutmeg, ginger, cardamom, cubeb, grains of paradise, liquorice, cassia bark, and elderberries for a touch of sweetness.

Cassia Bark









Grain of Paradise





The Palmers’ Guild had membership across the UK; it’s even mentioned in Shakespeare’s plays. Membership meant that your soul was prayed for in perpetuity after you died; if you like it was a sort of spiritual life assurance policy. We know that the members of the guild had expensive tastes; they had their own guild hall, and regular feasts. We also know they imported spices. The was an established pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela in Spain via Bristol, and so the trade in spices from the east was well established.

Creating a spiced gin was a natural choice for me, as it had a place in the history of Ludlow. It was an absolute joy to develop this gin – there were so many wonderful aromas to choose from. Our spiced gin isn’t actually spicy, it’s aromatic, making the best use of gentle heat, but also enticing aromas. Liquorice and elderberry bind those two contrasting elements together.
