THE HISTORY OF GREENALL'S
Hand crafted by England’s Oldest Gin Distillery; Greenall’s Gin remains true to our founder’s vision to create the first quality crafted gin. Greenall’s remains unchanged from the original recipe and closely guarded by just seven master distillers in our 250-year history.
MASTERS OF OUR CRAFT
Our entire process of crafting Greenall’s Gin is overseen by our 7th Master Distiller, Joanne Moore. Joanne, along with our masters of craft, focus on crafting exceptional new gins for the Greenall’s portfolio and ensuring every batch is produced to perfection including each botanical being weighed and placed into the distillery’s beautiful copper stills by hand.
1. THE INGREDIENTS
Before the distillation begins the botanicals are added by hand to our copper still along with a mixture of grain neutral spirit and water sourced from the foothills of the local Cheshire Plains. The botanicals are then rested in the spirit and water to allow the flavours to infuse.
2. THE DISTILLATION
Using steam, the liquid is heated until it vaporises, taking all the essential oils and aromas of the botanicals. The vapour is cooled, condensed, and collected as a concentrated spirit.
3. THE HEARTS
Only the ‘heart’ of the distillate is chosen to create our gin. Any residual liquids (the ‘heads’ and the ‘tails’) which are created at the start and the end of the process are discarded.
