All the way from the Welsh Marches comes Ludlow Dry Gin, created by Shaun Ward. The gin is distilled in a way that has been crafted for hundreds of years, using only natural botanicals and no artificial additives. Shaun uses a traditional, copper-pot distillation; everything is put into one pot and the outcome is bottled.
‘I’ve worked in Ludlow for over 13 years. I am heavily involved in the community and I’ve made lots of great friends there.
Ludlow is famous for food: passionate producers, characterful bistros and restaurants, and epic festivals. I’ve seen the food scene grow and develop over this time; I spotted a gap and thought I could combine my passion for gin with my passion for Ludlow. It’s something new for the town I love.
We distill gin as it has been crafted for hundreds of years, using only natural botanicals and no artificial additives. We use a traditional, copper-pot distillation: everything goes into one pot and what comes out is what we bottle. Over many months and even more experiments I developed a range of unique but traditionally juniper-led recipes, all at a decent 42% strength. Taking my inspiration from some of the greats, our classic ‘house gin’, Ludlow Dry, is perfect as a G&T or the base for a martini – also available in Navy Strength at 57%, for the serious gin connoisseurs. Our other gins provide a contemporary palette of refreshing drinks – only you can decide which is your favourite.’
