Case Studies

Custom Branded Gin

Dragon Hill

West Berkshire Brewery wanted to create a unique gin brand that used hops as a botanical and took inspiration from the outstandingly beautiful countryside that surrounds the brewery.  We developed a name and brand that linked the gin to the location and carefully selected locally inspired and sourced botanicals, including our own honey, resulting in an award-winning London Dry Gin.

Custom Branded Gin

Magpie Hill

Magpie Hill in rural Shropshire boasts spectacular views in all directions. Adorned with wild-flowers and gorse, the brand owner wanted to use foraged botanicals from the hill. Using wild gorse and a selection of floral and citrus botanicals, we created a delicious London Dry gin, soon followed by a Navy strength (called Lockdown) and a damson gin made with locally foraged wild fruit.

We worked closely with the team at Hawkridge Distillers to create a totally unique craft gin using botanicals sourced directly from our own vegetable garden. The end result has been an incredible craft gin that is truly loved by our customers.

I worked closely with Phil at Hawkridge on The Outward Bound Trust’s Christmas Fundraising Appeal. We created a bespoke and beautiful gin – Ravenglass Limited Edition, which has been so well received and has helped raise vital funds for the organisation too.

Having recently taken delivery of a batch of bespoke Damson Gin from Hawkridge Distillery for a company gift to our customers, I cannot say thank you enough to them for their help, professionalism and patience. To say we are pleased with the finished product is an understatement.

It was a fantastic experience working alongside Hawkridge Distillers in the creation of our own gin. We tasted three different gins to decide on our base and all chose the second one for its versatility, flavours and freshness.

Working with Hawkridge was an absolute delight. We were looking for and exceptional, bespoke gin that used hand-picked botanicals sourced from our back yard. The team at Hawkridge knocked it out of the park with all three of our gins.
