Shed 1 Distillery

Shed 1 Distillery


Established in October, 2016, Shed 1 produces small batch (36, 50cl, bottles per run), big flavoured gin. As we say, smooth enough to be sipped, bold enough to be mixed. Just 10 months after we launched, in August 2017, we received a Great Taste 2 star (outstanding) Award for Cuckold's Revenge.

After distillation, filtered Eden Valley mineral water (from Cumbria) is added to all our gins.

The world of gin is a wonderful place, inhabited by lovely people with fine spirits. Who wouldn’t want to be part of that?

Having travelled the world and sampled the wonderful and weird that it has to offer, there’s nothing that quenches the thirst like a good gin and tonic.

However, to make your own. To mix the botanicals to produce your own signature flavour. To use the magic of alchemy to create gin nectar from natural ingredients. What a thrill!

But where could we begin our journey into juniper? What place on earth would suit our needs? Somewhere big enough for a small still, close to home would be good, rent-free even better.

"How about the shed?"

"Which one?"

"Shed 1, closest to the house."

"What about all the stuff in it? "

"We’ll put it in the other one."

"What, Shed 2? Good idea."

And so, Shed 1 Distillery was born.
