New £1m Liverpool Gin Distillery opens on Castle Street
The final touches are being added to the new £1m Liverpool Gin Distillery on Castle Street in the city centre, which is set to open to the public on Monday 26 November.
An exciting new attraction for Liverpool, the distillery offers three gin experiences involving distillery tours, gin tasting and gin making, alongside two bars where visitors can relax, eat and drink.
Opened by Halewood Wines & Spirits for its Liverpool Gin brand, the new Liverpool Gin Distillery features The Ground Floor, a gin and spirits bar where visitors will get to see Liverpool Organic Gin being made in its 600-litre working copper still. Here, they can enjoy a range of cocktails featuring Liverpool Gin flavours and other premium brands as well delicious handmade pizzas, tapas, flatbreads and nibbles. Visitors can also indulge in whisky tastings and dark spirit cocktails in the Basement Lounge, which offers dark spirits from all over the world.
One of the main attractions at the Liverpool Gin Distillery will be its specially designed Gin Lab where visitors will learn about the history of gin and organic Liverpool Gin, before exploring a wide range of botanicals they can choose from to design their own recipe and distil their very own bottle of Liverpool Gin, which can be named by them.
Visitors can take a Distillery Tour during which they can learn about the history of gin in Liverpool or a Distillery Tour and Tasting that also offers a four-flight gin tasting once they’ve finished their behind the scenes look at the distilling process.
Emily Kelly, General Manager at Liverpool Gin Distillery, said: “We can’t wait to open our doors to the public and see their reaction to this amazing new distillery.
“If you’re a gin lover then you’re in a for a real treat! However, even if gin isn’t your thing, we have two bars selling other spirits and brands, soft drinks, teas and coffees and some amazing food, so it’s going to be a brilliant place to meet up with your family, friends and colleagues.
“This is a beautiful Grade II listed building in Liverpool city centre and our bars will give even more options to those people who enjoy its thriving café culture and nightlife. We’ve put so much hard work into getting this place just right and are more than confident it will live up to the buzz around it!”
Liverpool Gin itself will play an important role at the distillery, including Liverpool Gin, Liverpool Valencian Orange Gin, Liverpool Rose Petal Gin and new Liverpool Lemongrass and Ginger Gin with its unusual blend of oriental fruits and spices.
