Ten UK gin distilleries that grow the ingredients for their base spirit

When once it was a choice between a few brands, today the task of selecting a gin is becoming increasingly overwhelming…

It’s no wonder – in the 12 months to September 2017, the UK gin industry across the on- and off-trade was worth a whopping £1.2 billion. It is thought that the UK produces more than 500 gins, and there are an estimated 6,000 examples worldwide.

And the numbers just keep rising. In the year ending 9 September 2017, 47 million bottles of gin were bought in the UK, an increase of 7 million bottles compared to the same period in the previous year.

It’s certainly not hard to buy a bottle of gin, but how much do you really know about the spirit you’re drinking?

To help you make an informed decision, we strip out the jargon and list 10 gin distilleries that grow the ingredients (grain, grapes, apples etc) used to make their base spirit, from those adopting a field-to bottle approach, to those recycling the by-products of the English winemaking process.
