Tipplemill Distillery launching gin into UK market

Tipplemill Distillery is launching its first London Dry Gin to the UK market. Based in South Lincolnshire, Tipplemill is made with wheat grown in harmony with nature on the family farm of the UK’s oldest working windmill, making it the UK’s only windmill-made gin.

Bottled at 44% ABV, the London Dry gin is distilled in a traditional copper pot still and features botanical recipes inspired by the elderflowers that grace the farm’s hedgerows.

It is presented in a bespoke bottle said to tell the story of the brand, with a windmill at its centre. The bottle’s cork stopper is shaped like a millstone, further emphasising the brand’s heritage.

Lily Craven, founder of Tipplemill Distillery, commented: “I am extremely proud to be launching Tipplemill to the market, the result of a two-year journey. I set out to create the best possible gin using wheat grown in harmony with nature on our family farm, taking inspiration from our milling heritage and all that the British countryside has to offer. Dedicated to quality, sustainability and traceability, this meant starting at the very beginning with the core ingredient, the base alcohol spirit. 

“Working with nature is central to our process, from using wheat my brother James harvests on our farm, to using the ultimate renewable energy source, the wind, to grind the grain between millstones to produce the wholemeal flour needed to make the base alcohol spirit. Tipplemill takes 12 months to produce and we are totally at the beck and call of nature – we have to wait for the crops to grow and the wind to blow.”

The gin will be available to the public through its website, with an RRP of £44 per 70cl bottle, including free postage.
