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!

What are the Great British Food Awards?

We’re very pleased to announce that our Festive Bramble Gin Elixir has been shortlisted in the Great British Food Awards!

What are the Awards?

The Great British Food Awards were launched in 2014 to celebrate the country’s finest artisanal produce, as well as the hard-working people behind the scenes. Judges include Raymond Blanc OBE, Masterchef’s Monica Galetti, Olly Smith, Eric Lanlard and Miguel Barclay. This year, the British Speciality category was added to the roster to celebrate classic food and drink made in a traditional way, while the Best New Product group rewards exciting new launches from the last two years. From dairy to cheese, artisan drinks to savoury preserves, The Great British Food Awards has a category for everyone.

 

Our Gin Elixir is packed with Locally Foraged Blackberries (Zoe bears the scars!) & Heritage Apples from our friend’s orchard: Bloody Ploughman, Dog Snout and Ladies Finger🍎🍏Steeped in our festively spiced gin. It’s a traditional strength gin elixir at 40%abv. Serve alone, with tonic or soda or add a splosh to your prosecco!

We like heating a measure or two in the microwave (10-15 seconds). Adds that extra warmth and enhances the spices.

Cheers! 🍸

World Gin Day Facts & Gin Tin

Happy World Gin Day! June 13th is the day the world celebrates all that is Juniper. Juniper berries are the major ingredient in Gin but did you know that they aren’t actually berries?
