ABOUT US & OUR GINS

Launched in October 2016 by husband and wife team Andy & Zoe Arnold-Bennett in the market town of Ulverston, Cumbria. Shed 1 Distillery produces small batch (36, 50cl, bottles per run), classically distilled with a contemporary-style, award-winning, craft gin.

“Smooth enough to be sipped, bold enough to be mixed.” Just 10 months after we launched, in August 2017, we received a Great Taste 2-star (Outstanding) Award for Cuckold’s Revenge. Shed Loads of Love was awarded a 1-star (Simply Delicious) Great Taste in 2018. In 2018 we were a finalist in the Cumbria Life’s Best Drinks Producer category and in 2019 we were awarded “Going Places” (One to Watch) by Cumbria Family Business. Also, Cuckold’s Revenge is included in the latest edition of “101 Gins To Try Before You Die”. This year, 2019, we are chuffed to bits to announce that we received another 5 Great Taste Awards!

Merry Ginmas!

What a year it’s been!

We achieved FIVE more Great Taste Awards (bringing our total to SEVEN), TWO Highly Commended at the Craft Distilling Expo Gin of the Year and were awarded “GOING PLACES” (One to Watch) at the Cumbria Family Business Awards

Shed 1 also found a new home at THE OLD CALF SHED, just across the road from our house and Garden Shed. The last two months here has been quite amazing. So much positive feedback from everyone who has visited. We’re really looking forward to going up a gear in 2020 when we start the GIN EXPERIENCES. There are more surprises to come which we hope you’ll all find as exciting as we do. 

We’ve collaborated with some lovely Cumbrian companies, including Lisa at GINGER BAKERS (Shed 1 Festive Tipple Gin, Clementine and Cranberry Fruit Cake), been GREEN SMALL BUSINESS certified and we were invited to the HOUSE OF LORDS as one of the 100 small businesses selected to represent and celebrate SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY! Also, our MARMALADE FUND and MEGA-GIN RAFFLE raised over £2,000 split between two charities: ULVERSTON MIND & GORLIN SYNDROME GROUP.

The Shed will shut at 7pm on Christmas Eve and will reopen on January 16th, 2020. This should give us enough time to do the final move from our garden shed and make sure all the experiences are ready to go. 

Thank you to EVERYONE for your continued support and encouragement.

Have a fabulous GINMAS and cheers to a great 2020!

Nowadays, gin comes in many shapes and forms. As you probably know, in order for a spirit to be called “gin” it needs to be at 37.5%abv and the main botanical has to be juniper. We describe our gins as “classically distilled, with a contemporary-style“. The taste is bolder than some others and can still… Continue Reading
