Meet The Maker

This special gin tasting experience is with Kate, our co-founder. It was in 2016 when Kate called her best friend Helen to say:  “We’re going to start a distillery – from now on we’re going to make gin!” The rest of the story you can find out whilst enjoying all of fabulous gins with Kate.

Gins in our Gin Tasting Experience

Served with tonic, lemonade or ginger beer, 25ml. All of our gins are 48% vol..

  • Blushing Monkey Pink Gin - A juniper-led but gorgeously floral colour-changing gin with a delightful sweet, but not too sweet fruity twist
  • Dancing Dragontail Summer Gin - A wonderfully refreshing floral gin with a kick of aromatic green cardamom and uplifting citrus notes from pink grapefruit.
  • Insane Ostrich Gin - Our take on a classic dry gin, made with lemon and lime zest, coriander seeds, angelica and orris roots. It has a classic gin taste with the vibrant and rich character of a Gin Kitchen Gin.
  • Gutsy Monkey Winter Gin - Full-bodied rich and smooth with subtle citrus and complex aromatic highlights.​​
  • The Ginger Cat Gin - Silky smooth, delicately spiced, vibrant and opulent. This gin created by Reeba, our Head Distiller is made with tonka beans, Iranian orange flower and orange zest.
