Charmingly, Nottinghamshire is home to one of just a handful of roads in the UK named 'Distillery Street'. The road, which was home to a shortlived distillery producing spirits from beetroot in the mid-1800s, is located in Ruddington near Nottingham - a village which is now home to Ruddy Fine Gin, one of the county's 2 active gin distilleries. Ruddy Fine Gin put Nottinghamshire on the gin map in 2022 by being a Winner in the Contemporary Gin category of The Gin Guide Awards 2022 with their Lockdown Gin.
