What is Small Business Saturday?

 

 

Shed 1 Distillery is one of this year’s ‘Small Biz 100’, a selection of small businesses drawn from every corner of the UK that reflect the vibrancy of the UK’s 5.6 million small businesses. In the 100 days running up to Small Business Saturday (December 7th) , the campaign will spotlight each of the Small Biz 100, as part of its mission to celebrate small business success and encourage the nation to ‘shop local’ and support British small businesses.

This year’s Small Biz 100 features a range of unique independent businesses each contributing to their communities and offering something different, including Shed 1 Distillery, founded in 2016 by husband and wife team, Andy and Zoe Arnold-Bennett. Shed 1 Distillery is based in a garden shed on the outskirts of the Lake District. They produce classically-distilled, contemporary-style gins, gin liqueurs and gin marmalade. They will be moving to a bigger shed in time for their third birthday where visitors will be able to see the gin-making process, enjoy  Gin Tastings and Make Your Own Gin Experiences, a first for Cumbria.

To celebrate, we’re launching our new Blackcurrant & Licorice Gin Elixir AND there will be 10% off all available online products on our day, Wednesday, September 18th.

Cheers!

"I just tried the "Giggle in the Ginnel" gin for the first time, and it's fabulous. Really tickles the tongue, I've been trying to guess at the botanicals but have resigned myself to happy, blissful sipping. Smooth, sensational, sublime. 10/10!"

"Lavender florals are apparent on the nose along with strawberry leaf. Buoyancy of fruit and flowers is followed by a pleasant wave of chilli, plus the gin botanicals sitting deep. Tonic opens up the strawberry and florals even further. Some heat and spice on the finish."
