The Hepple estate is a sort of Gin Eden. It lies in the wild and remote Northumberland National Park, home to four of the UK’s cleanest rivers, its darkest skies and some of its wooliest, most charming people. Water of great purity rises from deep within the sandstone hills that surround the distillery. As well as providing the water, these springs sustain a tremendous variety of aromatic plants. Including the ancient juniper from which they pick the young green berries so unique to Hepple Gin, but also the stands of Sweet Gale (or Bog Myrtle) by the burns, the Douglas Fir in the woods and the lovage and blackcurrant in the Hepple garden.
But more than any one ingredient, these hills provide the spirit we spend so much time trying to capture, so crisp and clean and real it crackles in the air. As soon as the car door clanks shut after a long drive to the distillery, you feel it. If this spirit has a word, it is invigorating. And if that word has a Gin, we’ve got a hunch it’s Hepple.
Hepple uses three different techniques - CO2 Extraction, Glass Vacuum Still and a Copper-Pot Still - to capture the full range of flavour from their chosen botanicals.
Hepple Sloe and Hawthorn Gin is an unusually, full, intense and dry take on the conventional Sloe Gin. Built for bar professionals and cocktail lovers, flavours have been captured more faithfully than normally possible through our pioneering Triple Technique. Including dry notes of hawthorn and amplified by supercritically extracted juniper, this is a blast of colour from the Hills of Hepple.
