Premium Belfast Gin
Belfast is known for its industrial heritage and the creativity of its people. Belfast men and women have built ships, planes and factories – and exported goods all over the world.
The surrounding area – from the Giant’s Causeway to the Mourne mountains – is famous too. Formed by glaciers and volcanoes, the natural landscape is perfect for catching rain and filtering it to give clean crystal-clear water.
It was our desire that Belfast Artisan Still would combine these elements of Belfast. We wanted our first Gin to be a Classic London Dry Gin, a good fit for any G&T but we wanted to put our own Belfast Twist on it. Through the process of buying our distillery equipment we met Master Distiller Jamie Baxter.
The name Jamie Baxter is well known within the world of distilling and gin. Jamie has built a career in distillation and designing and building distilleries, with numerous roles as master distiller for some of the UK’s most well-known craft gin brands.
For over a decade Jamie has helped build over 25 distilleries, that’s over 5% of all the distilleries in UK!
We worked under Jamies expert guidance to identify an excellent traditional London Dry recipe but to which we wanted to add our own unique Belfast twist. We take pure Irish water and add the finest locally found botanicals of Pink Heather, Rowanberries and Flaxseed to our recipe and handcraft them to produce our premium Belfast Gin.
In addition to our Gin we now also produce our Irish potato Vodka and our Raspberry & Elderflower Gin Liqueur.
With more blends currently being developed along with exciting news coming soon about our brand products we are proud to offer our tribute to the Belfast artisans who made this city what it is today.
