LET THE GIN BE­GIN

Cheshire Life - - Food & Drink -

Build­ing work has be­gun at the new £1m Liver­pool Gin Dis­tillery on Cas­tle Street.

The city cen­tre dis­tillery is be­ing opened by Hale­wood Wines & Spir­its for its Liver­pool Gin brand and will in­clude two bars – a gin and spir­its bar on the ground floor and a pre­mium dark spir­its bar at base­ment level - a spe­cially de­signed Gin Lab where vis­i­tors can make the spirit them­selves and a Bar­tender School. Guests will be able to see Liver­pool Gin be­ing made in a 600-litre work­ing cop­per still.

Gen­eral Man­ager, Emily Kelly and As­sis­tant Gen­eral Man­ager, Re­becca Hay­cox have been work­ing with War­ring­ton ar­chi­tects and in­te­rior de­sign­ers, DV8 De­signs, to fi­nalise the de­sign and fit­tings across all four floors of the Grade II listed build­ing.

Con­trac­tors should fin­ish in time for a No­vem­ber launch. Emily, said: ‘This is such an ex­cit­ing time; we can’t wait to see it all com­ing to­gether. We’re de­lighted to be of­fer­ing lots of em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties in the city.’

A big part of the de­vel­op­ment will be played by Liver­pool Gin it­self, which in­cludes Liver­pool Gin, Liver­pool Gin Va­len­cian Orange, Liver­pool Gin Rose Pe­tal and new Liver­pool Gin Lemon­grass and Gin­ger with its un­usual blend of ori­en­tal fruits and spices.
