Whittaker’s Gin Distillery
Operated by: Whittaker’s Gin
Whittaker’s Gin have a beautiful distillery in the heart of Nidderdale where on a visit here you can learn all about their award winning gins and sample the range.
Whittaker’s Distillery is the ONLY distillery in the Harrogate Region with a growing collection of small batch gins and spirits distilled in a Yorkshire-made still named Jezebel using natural spring water from the heart of Nidderdale.
The distillery is an old 1950s pig shed which has been converted into a distillery. Much of the work has been done by the family, with help from some amazing local tradespeople. It is all fairly basic and agricultural but very functional and this is where all the magic happens.
Ther stills are all called Jezebel named after the owners’ daughters, Jessica and Isabella. Their most recent stills are 300 litre which they had made by Tadweld in Tadcaster so they are possibly the only distillery in the UK that are using handmade, Yorkshire made stills.
