Nelson's Distillery & Gin School
Tel: 07399 455436
Founded in 2016 by owner and Master Distiller Neil Harrison, Nelson’s is a small-batch distiller based in the picturesque Staffordshire countryside. With its state-of-the-art 150-litre copper still “Victory” (aptly named after HMS Victory), Nelson’s produces high-quality award-winning spirits, quality controlled by Neil himself.
Nelson’s was born out of a hobby. Bored with retirement, Neil – a chef by trade - tried his hand at distilling. Using his refined palate and in-depth knowledge of flavour profiles, he developed a recipe that was put to the test at a gin school not too dissimilar to our own. After 7 visits - each time creating 7 different gins – and over a year of intense product development, Neil perfected his renowned blend of 27 botanicals known today as Nelson’s London Dry No. 7. This is the secret recipe that forms the base to all Nelson’s core gins.
Wanting to share his knowledge and let others experience the joy of creating their own personal spirit, Neil opened Nelson’s Gin & Vodka School. A unique learning, teaching and tasting academy where students distil their own bespoke bottle of gin or vodka, Nelson’s Gin and Vodka School has been voted Tripadvisor Travellers Choice 4 years running, placing Nelson’s in the top 10% of attractions globally.
