Made by our family with love
Forest Gin is an exceptional, award winning spirit which is distilled in small batches at our distillery here next to the glorious Macclesfield Forest.
We are a truly family company. Lindsay & Karl Bond are the husband & wife team in charge of the still, bottling, management, sales & shipping.
Harriet Bond (aged 8) is the BOSS. She leads all foraging missions, and is an expert in knowing the best spots for juicy bilberries & ripe raspberries. Hattie would actually prefer it if you did not buy our Gin, as any left over berries end up in her porridge every morning.
Our goal is to make the best tasting Gin that we possibly can, from the finest locally sourced ingredients where possible. We do as much as possible by hand - right down to the bottling.
In 2016, Forest Gin was awarded an unprecedented TWO SEPERATE DOUBLE-GOLD MEDALS at the San Francisco World Spirit Awards. We nearly fell off our chairs when this was announced, as this places the Gin amongst the Worlds very Finest Spirits.
We are VERY proud of our little Gin, and hope that you love it is as much as we do.
Forest Gin is distilled by our family in batches of a maximum of 85 bottles at a time. Each bottle contains these key elements:
These ingredients are ground by hand using a pestle & mortar, before being distilled by us here in Cheshire. The alcohol vapour and the flavoursome oils from the botanicals reach our copper condenser, where they are immediatley cooled. This fragrant spirit is then blended with our spring water to create unfiltered London Dry Gin of the very highest quality.
