Tom Warner and his team carefully and lovingly create beautiful artisan spirits from a 200 year-old converted barn on a farm in the quaint village of Harrington, Northamptonshire. To create their multi award-winning range of gins, Warner’s uses the farm’s own natural spring water, with many of the botanicals used in their spirits grown within the farm’s own botanical garden. Warner’s main still is called Curiosity, so named because of a curious cat that left paw prints in the wet cement of the distillery ﬂoor. November 2016 heralded the arrival of another, smaller still named Satisfaction. Satisfaction was introduced to ease some of the workload of Curiosity and allows experimentation with new ﬂavour creations. Curiosity and Satisfaction also lend their names to Warner’s adventurous and colourful gin tasting sets.
We started in 2012 on our beautiful family farm, with no idea what we were getting ourselves into. We began with the things that matter most and a dream to save the world from mediocre gin. We ended up stripping the industry back to its roots: we became gin farmers.
We draw water from our spring, grow the botanicals, and collect fresh honey from our own beehives. We try to keep things local and, as custodians of the land, we harvest with a respect for nature and the community. As we go, we try to give back more than we take: re-sow, replant, rebuild.
We question, experiment and invent epic gins, including some never imagined before. We do it in small batches in our gorgeous bespoke copper stills, Curiosity and Satisfaction. We have a lot of fun and think outside the bottle.
This is how, after years of planning and months of experimentation, we created our first, award-winning London Dry Gin. Then we pushed further, forging new gins… and whole new categories of gin. Creating world firsts, like our sweet, tangy rhubarb gin.
Our gut is our guide, and nature our inspiration.
