A SPIRIT LOVERS WONDERLAND: Our state-of-the-art distillation equipment is housed at Bawdon Lodge Farm, deep in the Leicestershire countryside. A location that depicts the quality and beauty of our Spirits of Adventure. Our beautiful 450 litre copper pot still nicknamed, Messy Bessy, was custom made by Arnold Holstein of Markdorff, Germany. The design of the still, the careful sourcing of ingredients and the great skill of the distiller, all contribute to the smooth nature of our spirits.
