The Wood Brothers distillery is nestled in a corner of the family farm which is at the heart of how their range of field to glass spirits have been produced. The land has been lovingly sustained by the Wood’s family for generations; they understand it, nurture it and in return they are able to reap what they sow, harvesting the winter wheat, barley and rye which forms the basis of Wood Bros vodka gin and their soon to be launched whisky. These humble grains are processed in our milling shed and are then carefully distilled into their award winning spirits.
Created by brothers Ed and Charlie the distillery was born when we combined our love for the land, as 6th generation family farmers, with the desire to diversify and start using our home grown products and stone granary barns to create single estate spirits.
With Ed’s knowledge of the intricate processes involved, he was able to lead on the development and hand building of the distillery in 2017. The first spirits came off the still early in 2018.
The winter wheat that is grown on the farm, when milled, mashed and fermented, creates a pure, well rounded base spirit with the ability to retain its subtle notes of the grain when distilled to create Single Estate Wood Bros Vodka and Gin.
The ethos of the single estate spirit was, from first conception, vital for the Wood Brothers, ensuring that we have absolute control on the whole process from field to bottle.
