Real craft is more than a sticker on a bottle. It’s dirty hands, hard work, full hearts, and a deep love of the land. It’s coming to work every day with a smile on your face and a fire in your belly to make uncompromising, epic gin. Real craft means graft. Real craft keeps you humble.
Warner Edwards started in 2012 on a family farm. They began with the things that matter most and a dream to save the world from mediocre gin. They ended up stripping the industry back to its roots: we became gin farmers.
Warner Edwards draw water from the spring on the farm, grow the botanicals, and collect fresh honey from their own beehives. They try to keep things local and, as custodians of the land, they harvest with a respect for nature and the community. As they go, they try to give back more than they take: re-sow, replant, rebuild.
We stock the whole range but one of my favourites is Victoria’s Rhubarb Gin
Made using a crop of rhubarb originally grown in the kitchen garden of Buckingham Palace during the reign of Queen Victoria.
The rhubarb juice is extracted using a traditional fruit press and blended with our Harrington Dry Gin to produce an alluring pink gin that is voluptuous on the palate with a sweet and tangy royal rhubarb explosion.
Enjoy with plenty of ice and your favourite tonic. Authentic British craft at its best.
My personal favourite, and with Burn’s Night around the corner it’s the perfect excuse if, like me, you don’t like whisky and want to celebrate with a wee dram! I personally think that the Scots have it right when it comes to Gin distilling and the years of blending whiskys have certainly paid off with this Gin, it’s rich and complex layers of citrus with a hit of saltiness, then reveal a woody, earthy finish from the foraged botanicals which leave a warm feeling to the mouth. I enjoy simply with a regular tonic, sprig of thyme and wedge of lime.
A progressive exploration of the botanical heritage of our Isle of Islay.
22 hand-foraged local botanicals delicately augment nine berries, barks, seeds and peels during an achingly slow distillation.
This first and only Islay Dry Gin is a rare expression of the heart and soul of our remote Scottish island.
To celebrate Burns we are offering a fabulous menu all week, 2 courses for £15, or 3 for £20
Available from Monday 21st till Sunday 27th January 2019
A Scottish style malty beer brewed in the style of some of the Scotch Ales of yesteryear. “Wee Malc’s” is a medium chestnut colour with a deep caramel and vanilla flavour and aroma. This beer is not too bitter and is the perfect accompaniment to hearty rich stews and casseroles, or indeed Haggis, Neeps and Tatties! The tartan on the pump clip is “Irving of Bonshaw Tower” Tartan. Wee Malc’s 80/- is available from mid January through to mid February.
