Our distillery and the gin-lovers who run it


We make craft gin in the Hertfordshire countryside, using botanicals foraged from our surroundings and inspired by the towns and villages of our beautiful and historic county.   


Come and visit our distillery, learn all about the history and manufacture of gin and watch it being made. Our ‘Gin Palace’ sells our entire range and allows customers to ‘try before they buy’.

our distillery

Our buildings were originally a Victorian stable and later a saddlemaker’s workshop. A years-long restoration project has uncovered many original features – like the original hoof-worn stone stable floor – and unearthed countless bags of leather and brass tack and bridles.

our customers

We welcome visitors to our distillery and shop.

We also collaborate with charities, businesses, visitor attractions, sports clubs and private individuals to create unique gin with stunning labelling and branding.

Out and about

We love to visit events all around the county to introduce our gins to a wider audience. Our beautifully restored vintage horse-box bar always makes a splash…


Richard Daniel - FOunder

With gin-making, Richard has allowed an early-retirement hobby to become an all-consuming passion and second career. He even rebuilt and refurbished our historical Victorian stable building by hand.

Richard Osmond - Head Distiller and Forager

Richard is the head distiller. He’s also an expert forager of wild botanicals. His recipes weave together folklore, history and wild flavour to take drinkers on a magical journey.

Tippi - Gin Hound

Tippi is the official distillery dog. Find her napping in the spirit boutique most days. Rare wakeful periods are spent with our resident forager Richard, scouring the forests for new and exciting aromas.
