Nestled at the foot of the South Downs, surrounded by woodland and steeped in thousands of years of history and tradition lies the sleepy Sussex hamlet of Chilgrove. This beautiful corner of rural England is home to Chilgrove Dry Gin, an astonishing spirit as elegant as it is gloriously English.
Handcrafted using traditional methods and distilled with natural mineral water filtered through the very chalk Downs which surround Chilgrove; this fine London Dry Gin marries the finest Sussex-grown botanicals together with a neutral spirit distilled from grapes. It is this unusual relationship which gives Chilgrove Dry Gin its sophisticated character, whilst the perfectly balanced elect of flavours, truly make it the gin for all seasons.
Eleven outstanding botanicals have been painstakingly chosen for their ability to bring something truly special to the team. The unique recipe embraces the hidden virtues of wild water mint, grains of paradise and citrus peel, using them to complement the extraordinary juniper berry and coriander seed.
A Master Distiller
Each small batch of Chilgrove Dry Gin is crafted in traditional pot stills under the watchful eye of our master distiller, who just happens to be the scion of a gin distilling dynasty that stretches back to the 17th Century.
It takes a process we refer to as ‘Botanical Alchemy’ to create a gin that combines so perfectly the finely balanced elect of botanicals together with the less tangible sense of ‘Englishness’ which lies at the very heart of this glorious spirit
