Silent Pool Distillers
Drawn by a common passion for craft distilling, a group of friends came together to create a new kind of distillery, producing handcrafted, artisan spirits. In an extraordinary location on the Duke of Northumberland’s Albury Estate, a group of dilapidated farm buildings on the banks of the legendary Silent Pool has been transformed to become the home of the Silent Pool Distillers. In keeping with the original vision for a sustainable business, a vintage wood-fired steam boiler was restored to power the hand-built copper still, created for Silent Pool Distillers by the Arnold Holstein Company in the Lake Constance area of Germany. The distillery was completed with the arrival of the bespoke stainless steel tanking, sourced from the Vipara Valley in Slovenia, tanking designed to hold both the spirit and the crystal clear water pumped directly from the Silent Pool itself.
Fresh floral and clarifying citrus notes are grounded by earthy and spicy cassia bark and cubeb, and a smooth finish is achieved with the help of local honey.
Recommended serve is with a generous handful of ice, a dash of tonic, and a twist of orange peel to garnish.
