Who we are…
Locals from Ditchling: who have been inspired by the history of the local arts and crafts movement and have enjoyed both walking and foraging with our families on The South Downs.
We decided to try and make a gin which resonated with what we love so much right here on our doorstep.
Ditchling Gin was thus born & launched at our Ditchling Ball in the summer of 2019.
Ditchling Gin is a London Dry style Sussex Gin with bold distinctive branding. Made with the best UK-sourced grain spirit, carefully infused with juniper, coriander, angelica, orange, lemon, bitter almond, cassia bark and Sussex spring water.
In October 2019 we were delighted to be awarded a Silver Medal in the ‘Global Spirit Masters Luxury’ competition, for Ditchling Gin. According to the judges Ditchling Gin is “balanced, well-integrated and very fresh”, as orange, lemon, bitter almond and cassia bark botanicals combine for a rich taste and subtle sweet orange citrus finish – and even better, with zero sugar content!
Whilst some prefer it with light or Mediterranean style tonic water, and it is equally acceptable with soda water and a twist of orange.
This December, Ditchling Gin also won two of the top Harpers Design Awards for the innovative and standout label design. We were honoured to be awarded a gold medal and achieve the number 2 award in the whole show.
We are really proud of our Ditchling Gin. Our brand has been built around our beliefs in craftsmanship, design, quality and in our values of friendship & family, our community and locals getting involved.
We hope you love it as much as we do.
