Our small (but perfectly formed!) distillery is located in Budbrooke, Warwick. The buildings we are in were originally the Calf Pens on Church Farm, Lorraine’s sister and Brother in-law’s dairy farm. The Farm is no longer a dairy as brother-in-law Ren now runs a brewery on site- Church Farm Brewery- as seen on Countryfile! So a distillery next door was the obvious next step for our family.

Renovating the Calf Pens has been a real labour of love, which began in 2018 (as soon as the snow cleared!) Martin built the bar and gin school counters himself using reclaimed floorboards purchased from a well known auction website!

Please take a look at the progress photos below – We are very proud of the end result.

Meet Nellie

Our beautiful 100ltr still Nellie has a copper pot and copper side column. This ensures maximum copper contact during the distillation process, ensuring all impurities are removed. Nellie also has a gin basket. This is where the more delicate botanicals are added later on in the process to ensure that their flavours are preserved and still evident at the end of the distillation process.

Why Nellie?

Al-Ambiq stills arrive from Portugal!

Running up to the launch of our main distillery facility in Warwick we are making use of six new Al-Ambiq stills to perfect our recipe and in our Gin School where people may come and make there own gin.

Gin School Experience

Your Moores of Warwick Gin School Experience will last for approximately three hours. Upon arrival you will have a coffee and we will show you Nellie, our still, we talk you through how we make our Gin and answer any questions (keep them Gin based please – definitely no geography – we are rubbish at that!).

We will then have a Moores of Warwick Gin and Tonic whilst you choose and blend the botanicals to make your own unique recipe Gin – be it traditional, citrus, spicy, floral or herby – it’s entirely up to you! You will then distil your creation using one of our six traditional, copper Al-Ambiq stills imported from Portugal. Time for another little drink whilst the distillation is happening! You can then name your creation, bottle it and add a personalised label.

We will keep a record of your own personal blend of botanicals and should you wish to re-order in the future we will recreate your recipe and send you a bottle (or two).
