On a sunny afternoon in Oswestry we were very fortunate to be invited to check out the Henstone Distillery. Nestled behind the Stonehouse brewery tap we found the magnificent Hilda, their very own 1000 litre Kothe still.
Hilda in all her Glory
After a swift sample of the beers available from Stonehouse the head distiller, Chris Toller showed us how their gin (and whisky!) was created.
Bags and Bags of Botanicals
We then cracked open a bottle and sampled their amazing gin – bags and bags of flavour with a truly smooth finish. It is so packed full of natural botanicals that the essential oils develop a louche (cloudy to me and you!) when added to ice.
Needless to say we grabbed as many bottles as we could and it is now available to buy here
Craig & Chris talk all things Gin!
