For the last 18 months design and marketing team Kate & Ben Marston have been working towards the opening of Hertfordshire’s very own gin distillery – Puddingstone Distillery and on 1st November they launched a crowd funding campaign to raise £20,000 to assist with the launch.

We’re pleased to announce that the couple have exceeded their target with a week left to run of the campaign and the pledges are still coming in. You can pre-order first batch bottles of gin right up until 8am on 27th December when the campaign finishes.

The distillery’s core product is Campfire Gin and is dubbed ‘the Spirit of the Outdoors’. Campfire Gin will initially be available as a bold 42% London Dry version followed by Navy Strength and Cask aged varieties, while plans for seasonal gins, sourcing local botanicals, are also in place.

“We have many years’ experience in the craft beer industry and saw the opportunity to meet the growing demand for specialist regional gins – our plan is to focus on the Chilterns,” said Kate Marston, who recently won a national Best Business Women Award. “We have been overwhelmed by the support of the local community and the excitement the distillery is generating in the area.”

The distillery will be opening in 2016 in Wilstone near Tring.
