Fox’s Kiln Distillery Gin is a new range of artisan gins created by Gloucester Brewery that are distilled and bottled at its headquarters in the historic Gloucester Dockyards. The team pride themselves on producing handcrafted, small batch gins using only the finest natural botanicals and real fruits. There are no artificial additives or preservatives added to the range and most of the fruits and flowers used in their batches are picked locally from Over Farm, which makes them totally unique.
As a chef for more than a decade, our founder Jared Brown has always been passionate about working with natural ingredients.
Bored by his office job, he decided to open a microbrewery at Gloucester Docks in 2011 and this grew into the award-winning Gloucester Brewery you see today. It prides itself on creating great tasting sustainable beers with little impact on the environment.
In 2019, excited by the creativity and opportunities in the gin industry, Jared embarked on a new journey – distilling.
He went back to school to learn how to balance the botanical combinations to create the perfect gin without the need for any artificial ingredients.
In early 2020, a 100-litre Genio still arrived at the brewery at Fox’s Kiln, a former Victorian malthouse. Inspired by the history of the building and the surroundings there was only one name for the new venture – Fox’s Kiln Distillery was up and running.
As well as creating our four original gin flavours, Jared loves to experiment with ingredients found locally to produce special edition spirits. Our summer special was a wild elderflower and lemon balm gin made using ingredients from a nearby farm.
