Gin isn’t just for Christmas, but it might just make the perfect gift and choosing an artisan bottle just makes you look so much more thoughtful. Crafting the perfect gin takes time, patience and a sprinkling of innovation. Wharf Distillery’s goal is to produce handcraft flawless gin using meticulous methods of distillation.
With roots firmly planted in the gorgeous Northamptonshire countryside, their artisan distillery methods aren’t the same as most gins you’ll find in a supermarket. As a small-batch copper-pot distillery, the focus is entirely aligned with quality and our botanical inspiration comes straight from the view out of their window. All the grain and fruit in their spirits is plucked straight from the lush local fields, with each spirit being handcrafted using grain-to-glass techniques.
This is the skill of true artisans. Each spirit contains a beautiful botanical blend and is handcrafted in handmade Portuguese copper alembic pot stills. .Lemon & Basil might be more of a summer blend, but I think this combination of flavours work well all year round, my sister and her husband will be pouring a glass with ice this Christmas. Cheers!

It pairs great with ginger ale, or a large shot in a prosecco and would be a great way to kick off Christmas Day. Based on our classic London dry gin base, we utilised a tried and tested spice recipe that we’ve been using with huge success for the past 8 years.’ One thing’s
