I am crowdfunding to produce, completely customisable, delicious, small batch Gin made in Cornwall with the flavours forged in Devon.

New stretch target

Wow! The extra money would be amazing!

With this I can develop a new flavour and hire a illustrator to create a bespoke beautiful label design for both Gins to make the bottle even more gorgeous!


What is the fundraising for?

I'm crowdfunding to raise the money needed to help launch a small business making delicious infused gin. If you are super-kind (or really into Gin) and want to help, in return you will receive an awesome reward and a huge thanks from me. 

What's the story?

I unexpectedly fell in love with Gin aged 21, propping up a bar in Adelaide with friends. It was the first time I had drunk Gin and I still remember the experience to this day, not because it was a particularly wild night or because the bar itself was memorable and at the time Gin wasn't even 'cool'...

The evening was memorable because it was a dull Tuesday night, we were the only customers and the bar tenders (with nothing else to do) took the time to teach us about Gin.

We tried a selection of small batch Gins from across the world. The Gins were served straight with each Gin being complimented with its own bespoke blend of botanicals, edible flowers and fruit. The (two very lovely) ladies behind the bar would stop us trying each Gin until the flavours of the fruit/flowers/botanicals had infused into the Gin so we could enjoy each sip.

I'm striving to bring this experience to the UK, I want customisation to come to your home, to your favourite pub, to be an unexpectedly wonderful experience in a hotel bar; so you can customise your Gin on a Tuesday night too!

I'm creating a totally unique, small batch mildly flavoured Craft Gin with 'infusion pockets' so you can infuse each measurement to your taste and drink it the way you like (with or without tonic). The Gin market is crowded with mass produced Gin and I want to make it a memorable enjoyable experience for you and your friends.

How is the Gin made?

I'm working with a small farm and craft distillery in Cornwall, just miles from where I grew up to create a bespoke Gin. This Gin is completely 'plough to bottle' onsite to ensure that there is a very low impact on the environment and keeps carbon emissions low. 

I'm also working with a Devon based foraging expert (who coincidentally was with me on that fateful night in Adelaide), to source part of the first flavour, Pine, aswell as experimenting with other great British flavours.

The first flavour I will bring to market is Pine and Orange, which is a delicious combination (don't just take my word for it, pledge to buy a bottle and try it for yourself!).

With your help, I'll be producing a high quality, vegan, Gin that has limited impact on the environment, but a huge impact on your tastebuds!














Tell me about the bottle.

To ensure environmental impact low, I will be working with glass bottles, which are not only gorgeous to look at, but you can recycle or reuse your bottle after (who doesn't love a bottle candle-holder).

If you pledge, you will be able to help me achieve my dream of bottling the first small batch and you will of course, have the opportunity to buy one of the first ever made - how exciting is that?!

There are hundreds of Gins out there - why is this different?

Customisable infusion! Each Gin will come with bio-degradable 'pockets' of infusion, crammed with the best dried botanicals and orange so you can simply place them into your Gin, infuse, wait, test, infuse, test... drink.

What will supporting this project enable?

If you support this project, you will be helping to create the first ever batch of this delicious gin, including:

  • Distilling (we have perfected the recipe - we just need to make it!)
  • Bottling and packaging
  • Selling it to you (and to bars!)

I have obtained all of the licenses needed, completed extensive market research around flavour, bottle shape and design and worked with amazing creatives to created a beautiful brand - but I need your help to make this happen.

Your help will make this dream come true.

Thank you (please pledge!).
