Foxhole Spirits specialises in the creation and production of high quality, premium spirits with a focus on using otherwise unused resources, promoting sustainability and creativity within the drinks industry.
Established in early 2016 by co-founders James Oag-Cooper and Sam Linter, we distill our knowledge and expertise to create hand crafted products that are beautifully unique, of the highest quality, honest to their origins and most importantly, exceptionally delicious.
Our first product Foxhole Gin, launched in September 2016, is created using the rare and valuable by-products from the Sussex grape harvest. The unused juice is pressed from the grapes before being fermented and distilled, a process which helps to reduce wastage from the English Wine industry and helps to make Foxhole Gin beautifully balanced, smooth and aromatic with flavours that subtly change with each new vintage.
Along with our grape spirit, Foxhole Gin is also infused with the botanicals Juniper, Coriander, Angelica Root, Orris Root, Liquorice Root, Bitter Orange, Fresh Lemon Zest, Grapefruit Zest, Angelica Seed and diluted with natural spring water.
The company takes its name from the narrow, winding Foxhole Lane that leads to the vineyards that the grapes are sourced from.
It takes two days to distil the wine into grape spirit; another two days to blend it with neutral spirit and carefully selected botanicals. Then it’s back to the still for a second time, and the real magic happens.
But because no two grape vintages are the same, the raw material changes from year to year, too. So they work with their distillers to achieve the perfect flavour balance and ensure consistent quality. The result is a smooth, aromatic gin whose flavours subtly change with each new harvest.
Created using the rare and valuable by-products from the 2015 Sussex grape vintage. Repurposed through craft, skill and resourcefulness, Foxhole Gin takes 8,760 hours to make; a full grape-growing season, a long fermentation and six distillations in a hand built copper still.
Multiple award winning, Foxhole Gin is beautifully balanced, smooth and aromatic, with flavours that subtly change with each new harvest.
