In this episode, we have the absolute pleasure of visiting Carol and Derek at the Spirit of Masham Distillery.
Derek explains how and why they entered the Gin Distilling world.
He explains the ingredients and what makes their gin unique.
Their love for the Gin world prompted them to also start a Gin experience at their premises which not only gives you the history of gin but also lets you distil your own unique personalised gin with advice on what botanicals to add to get the desired taste you would like from the distillery’s distillers.
We then go on to taste Derek and Carol’s world-class gins.

We are lucky enough to be at the beginning of this new Gin’s journey.
Eorl Crabtree in partnership with the Divine House of Gin has developed a new Gin which literally is just coming on to the market.
Some of you will know Eorl from his playing days in International Rugby and Rugby League.
We discuss what made him try his hand at introducing a new gin to the market as well as discussing and, perhaps, more importantly, checking out the tasting profile of the gin itself.
We review the Gin produced for Harewood House using botanicals grown in the walled garden of this Stately Home.
The Gin is produced by the Harewood House Drink and Food Project.
this Gin is a no-nonsense Gin full of flavour and will be loved by everyone who enjoys the dry gin style.
With tonic, the gin still shines through!
This is fantastic classic Gin for those of you that love that clear refreshing distinctive taste of an English Gin!
This episode is about not one, but three fantastic Gins, all of which have shot into John L’s top 10. (It used to be top 5, but it seemed too difficult with the introduction of these three gins to determine the top 5!)
We discuss with Tony how he and his wife, Sarah, got into gin, what drove him to start his fantastic distillery and his goal of creating world-class spirit and providing employment for veterans, young people and ex-cons.
During the interview, Tony takes me through a tasting experience and then at the end of the interview I hot foot it back to the Cellar for John M to taste and give his opinion!
Let us know what you think of the interview and if you get to try the gin what you think of it.
