PitWheel Distillery was established by the Rickard family in 2019 in Wingate in County Durham, turning distiller Derrick's passion for gin into a business. Their flagship gin, PitWheel Classic Dry Gin, was launched in 2020 and the name and imagery are inspired by Wingate's mining history and the town's Pit Wheel monument that commemorates this history.

Meet the Makers
"Derrick had been experimenting with gin flavours for a couple of years - ever since it had become increasingly popular on the drinks scene, people just couldn't get enough of it - including us! And that's when the light-bulb moment happened and PitWheel Distillery was born." - Founders, Derrick & Charlotte Rickard
