Ribble Valley Gin
Ribble Valley Gin
Tucked away in an old stone outhouse is a micro distillery that is producing some of the best quality craft gin around.
Producing 50 bottles of gin per batch, using pure spring water from a private estate in the Trough of Bowland and the finest natural botanicals. The Ribble Valley Gin Co, founded by young couple Justine and Luke, produce small batch artisan gin in their distillery based on Longridge, Lancashire.
As avid craft gin fans, Justine and Luke wanted to bring something different to the gin market. So, after lots of research, development and most importantly taste testing; the duo decided to make their signature gin “Little Lane”, launching in February 2019. The distillery is a stone outhouse, built in 1888 and was originally used as a “piggery”, and with it having so much history and standing for over 130 years, they have kept most of the original features. They use an 83-litre column still for their gins and vapour infuse their chosen botanicals, giving each gin a smooth and clean finish.
Since launching in early 2019, they now have four gins, with one recently winning Gold at the World Gin Awards; they are setting their sights on more craft spirits in the future.
All of the gins have been created to reflect the natural beauty of the British countryside, each gin has its own unique character but collectively they have the distinctive Ribble Valley Gin taste, as they use locally sourced spring water from a private estate in the Trough of Bowland, originally discovered by an English King.
Each label design is carefully thought out; showcasing all the botanicals in the respective gins telling a story, they use a local artist for each design making each bottle is its own unique work of art.
