Whittaker's Gin is a family business run by Jane & Toby Whittaker from Harewell House Farm in the heart of Nidderdale in North Yorkshire.
In the summer of 2018, Toby & Jane embarked on expanding their capacity and decided to build a new distillery building so they could welcome the public through their doors so they could join them on our journey and new projects. The first one being making Whisky, keep an eye out for a very special, limited edition batch coming soon.
Their aim is to produce an artisan small batch, handcrafted spirit which reflects the Yorkshire countryside in a bottle.
This is a 48% ABV Old Tom style gin. Toby & Jane couldn’t resist making this as they have masses of rosy red Crab Apples growing at the Distillery. It is made with a combination of their gins at a high ABV so you get lots of underlying subtle flavours cutting through the fruit and sugar.
Old Tom Gin
Juniper, Coriander and Angelica Root gently overlaid with signature botanicals of sweet Hawthorn Berries, Billberries, peaty, earthy Bog Myrtle, home grown garden Thyme with a gentle hint of fresh lemon citrus. Crab apples.
Slightly spiced and a hint of juniper, with syrupy orchard fruits and a touch of apple skin sharpness among the sweeter notes.
Hipflask for when your're walking on a chilly Autumnal day. Also great on ice or with soda water/light tonic garnished with red apple.
