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 Cask Aged

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 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 Navy Strength

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”
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.
