Henstone Distillery

Distilling Gin, Whisky, Vodka and Brandy

Well, who would have said we’d be making hand sanitiser? This certainly wasn’t in the business plan!

Hand sanitiser bottles ready for distribution

Following fantastic support from Alan Powell of the British Distillers Alliance and HMRC we have been able to commence production of much needed Hand Sanitiser. Between Friday the 27th of March and Thursday the 2nd of April we have produced 500 litres of ‘World Health Organisation  Handrub Formulation’. This has enabled us to deliver 500 x 500ml hand dispensers to three local hospitals. We are also supplying to local care homes, the Post Office, local hauliers and some retail customers. We are desperately trying to make sure we prioritise production and delivery appropriately, with the NHS always top.

Production of our hand sanitiser now takes precedence over all our other products but we do have stock of our three Gins, Vodka, Nonpareil and Old Dog Corn Liquor so let us know if you need anything.

Our very best wishes, The Henstone Distillery Team

UK based distillery producing Gin, Whisky, Vodka and Brandy
Established in 2017

Following years of planning we got our distillery up and running in 2017. Our aim is and always will be to produce high quality spirits for discerning drinkers. Please take a look around our site and learn about us, our products and techniques and of course, where you can buy our fabulous spirits.

As a gin distillery we brought our first product to market in March 2018 and have won some great awards since.

Our whisky production commenced in December 2017. We filled our very first barrel with new make spirit in January 2018! We’ve been busy filling lots more barrels since and now look forward to our very first batch being bottled in January 2021. We hope you can celebrate this event with us.

From the start we planned to produce a ‘British Bourbon’ and achieved this on 28 January 2020 when we launched our Old Dog Corn Liquor.  This was a limited batch of 300 bottles and is now almost sold out! The next batch has been distilled and is maturing but it will not be available for quite a few months. So if you’re interested in a bottle from the first batch please get in touch as soon as you can.

Before going further though have a look at Hilda, our 1000 litre pot/column hybrid still built for us by Kothe of Eislingen, Germany. We’re using her to create Whisky, Gin, Brandy, Vodka and Old Dog Corn Liquor – see our product pages for details.
