They took inspiration from bars in cities such as London and Edinburgh, but wanted to take it a step further by distilling their own gin on the premises. The Fruit Market area is seeing massive regeneration and investment and they felt the time was right to bring their new business venture to fruition. They feel it will fit in perfectly as part of the growing community of independent businesses in Humber Street. To master the art of gin distillery and production, the owners teamed up with acclaimed gin distiller Jamie Baxter, who opened the City of London Distillery in 2012 – the first gin distillery to open in the capital for 200 years. Mr Baxter is also known for creating spirits such as Burleighs London Dry Gin and the award-winning Chase Vodka.
