Shed 1 Distillery, which was a finalist in Cumbria Life’s Best Drinks Producer category this year, also supplies independent specialist retailers, bars, hotels and Michelin-starred restaurants.
Earlier this year Zoe took a gold-award at the World’s Original Marmalade Awards held at Dalemain near Penrith. She uses the same fruits in her marmalade which feature in their gins.
Shed 1 Distillery is currently preparing limited edition Chilli gin, chilli gin chocolate and chilli gin marmalade for the upcoming ‘Chilli Fest’ at Cumbria’s Holker Hall on September 8 and 9.
Zoe, who is mindful of the environment as well as the gins local roots, said: “We avoid plastic wherever possible and all the materials we use are recyclable/compostable. We also encourage our customers to return the bottles by taking advantage of our bottle return scheme. For every bottle returned we give cash back to the customer and donate to charity.”
