Puddingstone Distillery

Operated by: Puddingstone Distillery

Monday through Thursday is by appointment only as we are busy distilling, making deliveries and organising events. Occasionally they may have a Sunday off! That’s why the shop is only open two days a week.

You might think They’re a micro distillery but in fact we’re a nano distillery! Come and enjoy a gin tasting day out from London, Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted, St Albans or Aylesbury. Find them on the P E Mead & Sons Farm Shop site adjacent to Wilstone Reservoir, Tring.

Puddingstone Distillery Brands:

Campfire Distillery London Dry Gin Bottle

Campfire London Dry Gin

Fresh orange and juniper take the lead in this complex London Dry that pitches itself on the boundary between classic and contemporary. Angelica contributes a subtle earthiness, with rich mid notes imparted by rooibos and golden berry. A lingering sweet, slightly floral, juniper palate lingers after each sip. A stunning Martini Gin.
Campfire Distillery Cask Aged Gin Bottle

Campfire Cask Aged Gin

Based on their Navy Strength botanical loading, The team at Puddingstone Distillery reduce their new make spirit to “cask strength” before resting in American Oak, ex-bourbon casks from Kings County Distillery (New York State) for a period that ensures this remarkable spirit imparts enough character from the cask whilst remaining a gin at heart. A mixologist and “neat sippers” dream.
Campfire Distillery Navy Strength Gin Bottle

Campfire Navy Strength Gin

Whilst the botanicals remain anchored to that of our London Dry, the quantities and pre distillation treatments are adjusted to give you big bold flavours and aromas that balance out the heady 57% ABV. This not only coats your palate, it caresses the inside of your whole head. 2017 London Craft Distilling Expo “Gin of the Year”
Campfire Distillery Old Tom Gin Bottle

Campfire Old Tom Gin

In considering how an 18th centuryrural distiller might approach thecreation of an ‘Old Tom’ style gin,the team at Puddingstone Distillery married a unique botanical selection with pot distillation and compounding processes to deliver notes of spice, juniper and citruswith a hint of colour and sweetness without the use of sugar. History respected and re-imagined. Sometimes it seems that some things were just meant to be. During the development of the distillery, Ben discovered that his great grandfather worked in the wine & spirits industry until a ripe old age. The distinguished gentleman, one Thomas Marston, was affectionately known by his peers as Old Tom. Campfire Cask Aged Gin makes a pretty awesome negroni but Campfire Old Tom Gin is more than equal especially if you make their Old Bold Negroni recipe using a double measure of gin!
Puddingstone Distillery's Canteen Honey Gin Bottle

Canteen Honey Gin

At Puddingstone Distillery, in Tring, Hertfordshire, they teamed up with the wonderful folks at George Street Canteen in St Albans to create a gin using honey from their own beehives. The hives are situated in the café garden which has a stunning view of St Albans Cathedral and gives the bees, access to large green spaces such as the adjacent Verulamium Park, which, at over 100 acres, is host to a huge variety of plant species. They opted NOT to infuse the honey into the gin post-distillation as this often results in a final product that can be sweet and one dimensional. Distilling allows an extraction of characteristics which better reflect the assorted flora from which the honeybees collected pollen.
