LET THE GIN BEGIN
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.
