As you know, we produced Sherborne’s first distilled gin at Vineyards last year when we hired the mobile still ‘Ginny’ from the awesome people at ‘Still on the Move’.

What we didn’t know at the time was how well our choice of botanicals were going to go down with the gin-loving community of Dorset! Let’s just say that quite a few of us felt ‘ginspired’. We were lucky enough to get praise from Taste Award judges who claimed it was ‘Gin as it should be’ and placed us 1st in a local Dorset Gin tasting against some of the big boys.

Fast forward a year and we are absolutely delighted to say that we are launching ‘G’, Sherborne’s first gin, as a permanent product on Vineyards’ shelves. The journey of making this happen was exciting, and full of local support. Let’s just say the folk of Sherborne know how to get ‘into the spirit’!

We have to give a HUGE thank you to Bob and Vicky from Liberty Fields who have helped us to get our gin on our shelves. As much as we would love to have a copper still permanently out the front of Vineyards, we are not sure that we could get away with making the town smell of juniper 24/7 (Hogarth springs to mind here!) So, Liberty Fields have really helped us out here and we are chuffed for a local Dorset company to be on board with bringing our Gin baby to market. We’ve also used Wyke Print for the printing of our labels designed by local illustrator Matt Murphy and Richard Budd Photography to capture the fun, so it really is a Dorset affair!
