Tom Warner and Sion Edwards have a product to be proud of!

Realising  from the outset that their biggest selling point would be the provenance of their product, the pair distill and bottle the Gin at the farm premises and use Spring Water from one of the Northamptonshire farm fields.

The product has super-strong branding and has been taken up by leading food and drink retailers including Fortnum & Mason and Harvey Nichols, with the pair sticking to a plan to find the right person in the right store and to approach them directly.

There are plans for fruit flavoured Gins to come, we can’t wait to try them!
