Forest Gin is distilled in small batches (a maximum of 85 bottles at a time) at the brand?s distillery based in a 17th Century stone barn within Macclesfield Forest in the Peak District National Park. This location provides perfect access for the gin?s botanicals that are foraged locally, such as Peak District moss and ferns or wild bilberries and raspberries, as well as a source of Forest Spring water from an ancient spring in the Peak District.

The brand was founded by the husband & wife team Lindsay & Karl Bond, who were passionate that not only should the gin?s ingredients be locally sourced, but the material for the bottle should be too - hence the use of Staffordshire Porcelain. The brand employed Wade Ceramics, who have created bespoke ceramic products since 1810. They made the unique Forest Gin and then applied the artwork from respected Papercut artist Suzy Taylor by hand to each bottle. Taylor is known for hand cutting all of her artwork from a single piece of paper using a scalpel and a magnifying glass.

In 2016, Forest Gin became the only ever gin to hold the distinction of being awarded two separate double-gold medals at the San Francisco World Spirit Awards.

From the The Forest Distillery in The Peak District comes only the second product it has ever produced, that uses the already successful Forest Gin as its base.

With botanicals sourced from the local forest and ground by hand in a pestle & mortar, this tea-influenced gin was distilled just once in the tiny 30 litre pot still at The Forest Distillery. At this point, a blend of Earl Grey Tea from Cheshire blenders Quinteassential was added, along with spring water from the Peak District.
Herbal, earthy flavours blend with delicate notes of oolong, marigold and Sicilian bergamot.
