Why produce Gin?
Phipps bottled its own London Dry Gin until the beginning of WW2 so reviving this spirit goes hand in hand with the rebuilding of the company’s brewing range. Our Head Distiller Quentin Neville was a founding partner of the revived Phipps NBC and has a true passion for “Mothers Ruin”.
9 months of distilling and a lot of feedback from trials in our Albion Brewery Bar resulted in our first commercial Gin in June 2015. We could have simply bought in Gin and labelled it Phipps but that’s not how we work as authenticity is a guiding principal of the business.
How we make our Gins
We charge our Alembic pot with organic alcohol as well as using Laboratory Glass distillation techiques to extract the essential oils and flavours before blending with Northamptonshire Water.
The key to our process lies in the blend of botanicals used to make our Gins, maceration time, distilling and cutting the hearts to produce harmonious balance of flavours that are individual & exceptional.
