A boutique Yorkshire-based gin and whisky distillery is nearing completion, with 75% of the build finished and gin distillation set to begin early in the new year. England’s first self-built whisky and gin distillery, Cooper King Distillery will commence production of its juniper-led gin and open its doors to members of the public early in the new year. The whisky distillation will follow in Spring 2018, with a predicted release date of 2023.

The unique, premium gin, flavoured with select local botanicals, will be produced in micro-batches using ten and five litre stills. Cooper King Distillery is the first distillery in Yorkshire to combine innovative cold vacuum distillation with traditional hot copper-pot distillation.

Established by co-founders Chris Jaume and Dr Abbie Neilson (pictured), Cooper King Distillery is based in Sutton-on-the-Forest in North Yorkshire, on the site of a former stable. The distillery will invite local people and tourists to experience first-hand how gin and whisky is made, with a production area, cask maturation warehouse, tasting-room and spirit shop open to the public.

With over 250 founding members already signed up to its Founders’ Club, Cooper King Distillery has called for both whisky and gin enthusiasts to help shape the future of the distillery by becoming part of the Cooper King Distillery community.
