spirits with a twist of history
Established in 2015 we are an artisan spirit producer based in Stratford upon Avon, our name taken from the town’s most famous inhabitant. Proud to live and work in this historical town, we wanted to create something authentic to our area. Of course we couldn’t distil the bard himself into a bottle but we could look at the Tudor period in which he lived and the characters he created in his plays, and bring the essence of this into our spirits. We now craft a range of premium, handcrafted gins and rums made entirely onsite at the distillery, including the award-winning Stratford Dry and newly launched Jester Rum.
We opened our doors as a visitor centre in 2019 and and along with our onsite shop, we offer a suite of popular experiences including Tours, Gin Schools, Gin Cruises and Cocktail Masterclasses. Our visitor centre was awarded Gold in the New Tourism Business category at the 2020 West Midlands Tourism Awards and has received a 2021 Traveller's Choice Award by Tripadvisor.
