The Team

After years working in the drinks industry, we struck out on our own to pursue our passion for beautifully handmade spirits. We call ourselves “sip-smiths” to celebrate the craft of distillation and our artisanal methods.

We like to think buildings have a soul. Ours, in Hammersmith, west London, was once home to the esteemed whisky expert Michael Jackson, and before that, was the micro-brewery for a local pub. Now it is where we craft and hone our artisanal spirits. It is as if it knew what it wanted to be all along.
