Berkshire Gin Reviews - A to Z
Berkshire Botanical Gin
Launched in 2019, Berkshire Botanical Dry Gin is produced on the 9,000 acre Yattendon Estate in West Berkshire - the largest grower of Christmas trees in the UK. The copper pot still, named Harry, resides in the Royal Oak Pub & Hotel in the heart of Yattendon. The Berkshire Botanical philosophy is to create sustainable botanical spirits inspired by the botanicals growing on the Yattendon Estate, and Berkshire Botanical Dry Gin takes inspiration from the Christmas tree growing by featuring Norway Spruce.
Lumber's Bartholomew Gin
Lumber's Bartholomew Gin was launched in 2018 by Pete Lumber, Landlord of The Newbury Pub located in the centre of Newbury in Berkshire, at 137 Bartholomew Street. In 2018, 137 Gin Distillery was built onto the back of the pub and is named after the pub's street number, while the gin takes its name from a combination of Pete's surname and the pub's street name.
