Gins, Vodkas & Absinthe – Two Birds make it all!
It all started with a love for great tasting Gin, experimenting at home in the ‘workshop’ for months, tinkering around trying to develop the perfect drinking gin.
While our collection of great tasting British spirits has grown, all are still lovingly produced by hand using our bespoke, hand built copper stills. We produce small batches of just 100 bottles at a time, with every stage of the process produced and checked by hand, making sure that we remain a true artisan distillery.
Hatched back in the summer of 2013, Two Birds Spirits was created by engineer and gin enthusiast Mark Gamble. Often found tinkering away in his workshop, it was only a matter of time before his two loves combined – and so ‘Gerard’, our very first copper still was built. Just 2 months after launching our London Dry Gin was awarded Top Gold Award at the Craft Distillers Alliance and we’ve never looked back – our spirits have gone on to win a number of awards both nationally and internationally!
2014 saw Two Birds Spirits spread its wings, moving down the road from our small home-based workshop to a new 5,000sqft purpose-built distillery. And while our surroundings may have changed, our production methods haven’t… All our spirits are still distilled using ‘Gerard’ and are lovingly handcrafted by us from bottle filling to packing.
Our bottles are all hand decorated using only natural organic inks. Well, we care about what goes into the bottle, so why not the outside.
Where possible, we carefully select our ingredients from around the UK. We even sell some of our alcohol infused botanicals to other artisan producers.
Our still is incredibly energy efficient all running from a simple 13amp socket. Very handy when we were distilling in our home workshop.
All our water used for condensation is recycled within the still. We don’t waste a single drop.
Our tinkering and experimentation are not just limited to our innovative stills – we are constantly working on developing new and exciting flavours and our extensive drinks cabinet now boasts of an array of Gins, English Vodkas and Absinthe. Each year we also produce limited edition, seasonal spirits such as our festive Christmas Spices & English Vodka. With everything we produce our ethos remains, to produce the finest handcrafted spirts in Britain!
