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

Chapel Down

English winery Chapel Down made its first foray into the world of gin in late 2017, with the launch of a spirit made from grapes from the 2016 harvest. The base spirit is made from the grape variety Bacchus, grown at the winery’s vineyards in Kent.

At the time of the release, Chapel Down stated that the gin had been “developed to reflect the delicate flavour profile of the wine varietal”.

Chapel Down launched a 23-year-old English grape brandy in 2016, priced at £150 a bottle and crafted from Seyval Blanc grapes from the 1991 vintage at Lamberhurst Estate in Kent. It also released a Chardonnay-based vodka alongside its Bacchus gin.
