About Us

We started Tameside’s first ever distillery in July 2019.

Our Ethos

Create products which are completely unpractical for the mass producers to make.
Do it the hard way. The results are worth it.

Our Distillery

We had the funds to either start a gin brand and get somebody else to make our products, or do something really stupid.
Like actually open a distillery.

Our Gin

Part boiler infusion, part vapour infusion, our gin is distilled as slowly as possible in our 100 litre stills.
We extract the absolute maximum flavour from the distillation. Any more and the gin is cloudy.
We call it "proper gin". It’s the flavour the mass producers can only dream about.

Willow Wood

Willow Wood Hospice is an adult hospice providing specialist palliative care for patients with life limiting illnesses.
They celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2019.
We distil and bottle their unique gin. We support the charity by subsidising each bottle of gin we supply.

SALSA Approved

We are approved by SALSA.
What is SALSA? It is a food-safety standard and stands for “Safe and Local Supplier Approval”.
The SALSA audit – and the ongoing requirements to maintain certification – are much stricter than the hygiene inspection by our local authority.
SALSA certification is only granted to suppliers who are able to demonstrate to an auditor that they are able to produce safe and legal products and are committed to continually meeting the requirements of the SALSA standard.
