Hawthorn’s Gin is still produced to a recipe formulated by the co-founders seafaring Grandfather, a Commander in the Royal Navy during the Second World War.

The recipe was found in his secret wartime diaries containing detailed battle plans and analysis of previous confrontations.

Decorated many times for his bravery, he used to distil his own gin and take it to sea to boost morale. His maritime boast of being sunk three times and never getting his feet wet was always proudly toasted at each port with what became his legendary ‘On the Rocks’ measure.

Hawthorn’s was created in his memory, to honour his desire to see his ‘old tipple’ brought back to life. He used to invite fellow officers to join him and toast ‘the future’, and we invite you to raise a glass of Hawthorn’s to him and ‘to future drinks’.

Hawthorn’s Gin has been awarded a Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition for the last 2 years in a row re-inforcing its quality as one of the best gins on the market.

Tasting Notes

“Zesty and bright, with spice and coriander up front, as well as a touch of pepper in the middle, which then makes way for a fresh, yet dry leafy juniper finish."
