Whittaker’s Gin

Whittaker’s Gin is a family business run from their home, at Harewell House Farm, right in the heart of Nidderdale in North Yorkshire.

The aim of Whittaker’s Gin is to produce an artisan small batch, handcrafted spirit, which reflects the Yorkshire countryside in a bottle, and they’re proud to have achieved their goal.

They macerate all their berries for 24 hours prior to distillation, they also use garden thyme which is picked fresh from their garden on the morning of the distillation. Their original distillery is an old 1950s pig shed which is still very much in use as their storage, bottling, and labelling facility for their gins and other spirits.

Whittaker’s Gin – Camomile Lawn Edition – Tasting Notes – “Notes of juniper, angelica roots, smooth coriander and indeed the characters of Camomile flowers, showcased beautifully in this Gin.”
