Tudor England, the time of William Shakespeare and also a new creative era for spirit production. Stratford Gin is inspired by bygone pioneers who experimented with local home-grown flavours. Handcrafted in small batches in Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire with authentic Tudor garden botanicals including rose, lemon balm, rosemary and old English lovage fused with the more familiar juniper, coriander and lemon peel; this truly is a modern gin with a twist of history.
At Shakespeare Distillery we are committed to creating high quality spirits. With Stratford Gin we employ the ‘London Dry’ method of production, nothing can be added to the Gin other than the flavours imparted during distillation. For an added challenge and to ensure we really can say that we have created a handcrafted product we do this using the single shot method, meaning all the ingredients required to make one batch of gin are added in at the same time. We don’t make a concentrate and blend this down to get the flavour we want. This means we need to put the same love, attention and passion into every batch to ensure they each have a consistent delicious flavour which we are proud to call Stratford Gin.
Proudly distilled and bottled in Stratford upon Avon.
