“Let’s Make Gin,”
someone said….

It was a conversation between friends that generally goes nowhere. But for James Gurney, Robin Horrex and Phil Howarth, it was the start of something extremely exciting.​

‘The Blowing Stone’ gin has been meticulously crafted by the team at Hawkridge Distillers and includes flavour botanicals that would have been found in England 1,000 years ago.

We took our time getting it right but I hope you’ll agree it was worth the wait. We researched numerous methods and techniques, made many gin friends, found ourselves foraging for botanicals, reading all the books and even getting our distilling qualifications along the way. We also found a great use for the honey from our beehives!

We are now happily sharing our expertly crafted, unique creations with the world.

Our focus is on creating distinctive spirit brands, sumptuous flavours and making them totally and utterly irresistible – both in looks and in flavours.

We hope you will enjoy drinking them as much as we enjoy making them.
