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

Foxhole

Launched in 2016, Foxhole Gin is made from the by-products of the English winemaking process. Produced by Foxhole Spirits, which although a separate company, works closely with Bolney Wine Estate in West Sussex.

It lays claim to being the first gin to be distilled with a spirit made using English grapes.

Foxhole presses the unused juice out of the grapes before it’s then fermented and distilled, a process it deems important in reducing wastage in the English wine industry.

The distillery also claims that the spirit’s “smooth and aromatic flavours subtly change with each new vintage”.

The name “Foxhole’ is derived from the winding lane that leads to the vineyards from which the grapes are sourced.

The third release or ‘vintage’ of Foxhole Gin, called ‘marc 3’ after the French word for the pulpy mass of skins, flesh and pips left over after pressing grapes, has been created using the grapes from the 2015 Sussex grape harvest.
