Hilda is nearly 5 and we’re going to celebrate
November this year marks the 5th anniversary of the installation of our 1000 litre pot/column hybrid still, Hilda. How time flies!!
To mark the occasion we’re going to hold a “sort of” open day at the distillery on Saturday the 12th of November when there will be free mini tours and tastings as well as 10% off all our Henstone products bought on the day. The free tours will last about an hour, be limited to ten people each and must be booked in advance. Simply click on the time slot you are interested in to go to the booking page.
Our Whisky wins GOLD!!
We are really pleased to announce that our Single Malt English Whisky has been awarded a Gold Medal in the Global Whisky Masters hosted by The Spirit Business!
After what felt like a very long three years, the first Henstone whisky matured in January 2021! The first batch had been mainly pre-sold and then the remaining bottles were snapped up from our online shop within hours of release. We are now bottling to demand and have a steady stream being released. Head over to our ONLINE SHOP to see what’s available. Oh, and we probably don’t say this enough but almost all of our releases are SINGLE CASK!! You can read all the details of each release on this page of our site.
It also won a Silver Medal in the International Spirits Challenge 2021!!
San Francisco Double Gold for Henstone Distillery!!
We have won the prestigious accolade of Best London Dry Gin at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition!! Our London Dry Gin was awarded a coveted Double Gold medal and Best of Class at the awards. A Double Gold means that all members of the judging panel classed the spirit as Gold medal worthy and deemed the gin as being one of the finest products in the world. For the awards, more than 3800 spirits from all over the globe were blind judged by renowned experts in their fields. The competition is regarded as one of the most influential in the spirits calendar and is a significant win for us!!!

Chosen Charity 2022
We have chosen The Movement Centre as our charity for 2022
In previous years we did not have a specific charity we were supporting. For 2022, however, we have chosen The Movement Centre. The Movement Centre is a UK charity and specialist treatment centre dedicated to supporting children and their families living with movement disabilities.
To raise funds we are releasing a range of Platinum Jubilee Edition spirits over the course of the year. Each will be strictly limited to 70 individually numbered bottles and come in an engraved wooden box with matching insert. Five pounds from each bottle sold will be donated to The Movement Centre.
We launched our Platinum Edition Single Malt Whisky on the 9th of February and the 70 bottles sold out in 46 minutes! We are currently selling our Platinum Edition London Dry Gin – see the item in our online shop if interested (CLICK HERE FOR PLATINUM LONDON DRY GIN)
