A gin distillery based in Ellesmere has launched a new gin school and tour experience for gin lovers. The Shropshire Distillery was launched in 2018 by husband and wife team, Emma and Gareth Glynn. The distillery released its first spirit, Shire Gin, in July 2018 followed by their Spiced Gin later that year. In 2019 it was awarded two prestigious awards at the International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC).
The distillery tours and gin school, led by Emma, run on Saturday afternoons.
Emma said, “It’s great to be showing people how we expertly handcraft our classic, honest spirits. Our behind-the-scenes tours give gin lovers an exclusive look at the hard work that goes in to producing small batches of quality gin and the gin school provides a novel hands-on experience. There will be plenty of opportunities to sample our delicious gins as well!”
The distillery is bringing its gin school experience to the Shrewsbury Food Festival on September 4 and 5, with tickets being sold separately for places at the school.
