Born of parents who own a micro-brewery in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, it no doubt felt like the process of making alcohol was something which the four siblings were born to do when founding Sibling Distillery. The easy option doesn’t often yield the best results so, for this reason they do not buy in a neutral spirit, but instead create a high quality vodka from scratch. This gives the cleanest of slates on which they are able to vapour infuse their delicate and distinctive flavours using their state of the art glass and stainless steel Carter Head Still, and the the best ingredients available. The siblings’ dedication to detail bears spectacular results in their outstanding gins.
Sibling Distillery was founded in the summer of 2014, by the four Elliott-Berry Siblings, who at the time were all aged 22 or younger. Although young, the Siblings had spent their teenage years helping the family micro-brewery in their hometown of Cheltenham. This experience fuelled their passion for creating drinks, and led them to the conclusion that they should work together to create their very own drinks company.
After a year of development, they launched Sibling Triple Distilled Gin, which was their first and only product for the first three years of trading, before moving to a new distillery and launching their seasonal range in early 2017.
Using markets, trade shows and festivals as a platform to promote themselves, Sibling have garnered a strong following based on the quality of their gin and their attractive packaging. They have also made the most of their interesting story to gain great PR coverage all over the world.
What makes Sibling special?
As well as being a very highly rated gin (3* at the Great Taste Awards, gold at the Taste of the West), Sibling are also one of the few distilleries in the UK that makes our gin entirely from scratch. Not only do they rectify a very pure base alcohol, but they also ferment the unique cane sugar base themselves. This ensures that they have world-class quality from start to finish – we even bottle our gin on site too. The triple distilling makes a significant difference to the quality of the alcohol and in turn allows them to use more subtle, delicate botanicals for a refreshing taste.
Sibling’s botanical flavour was developed after extensive market research and includes unique botanicals such as Madagascan Vanilla pods and British Blueberries that give the gin a contemporary, modern taste, which is vapour infused for maximum freshness.
Their bottle is both unique and luxurious. Designed with four sides to replicate the four siblings and four-sided shapes to continue the theme. It even uses real gold on all four sides of the decoration to reflect the high-quality taste of the gin. The final touch is on the logo, with the four dots symbolizing the dates of birth of the founding siblings, with equal pink and blue diamonds for the two boys and two girls who started the distillery.
Sibling recently launched their seasonal range, which has been hugely popular. Using the four seasons as inspiration, they created their Spring Edition, using lemon peel and rosemary, Summer Edition, using strawberry and black pepper, Autumn edition, Apple, Blackberry and Cardamom and Winter which is Cranberry and Clementine. All flavours and colours are natural and infused from the raw source for the freshest taste.
