About Hillmartin Distillery
Hillmartin Distillery is a small family owned operation, headed up by father daughter duo Gavin and Amy Shaw, that is on a mission to make everyone a gin lover. Started as a project during another COVID lockdown, operations quickly accelerated and the desire to make great tasting gins became an obsession for those involved. Our story is one of combining art and science to produce a range of gins that are of consistent high quality and a breadth of flavour such that everyone can find a gin that they will love. Our range includes gins for those with a taste for the sweet and fruity through to those who like something that is dry. And of course everything in between.
We are passionate about what we do
Excellence is what we aim for in every aspect of our operations, the gins we bring to market and the way we treat you our customers. We are naturally inquisitive and always striving to do better. And we know that it’s the little things that make a big difference.
Commitment to continuous learning
With a background in Applied Science and a major in Applied Chemistry, our Head Distiller Gavin Shaw has a fascination experimenting with different botanicals and production techniques to make a perfect range of Gins. We are meticulous in ensuring a consistent flavour by controlling the quality of botanicals, distillation process and final product checks.
At HM Distillery we are committed to being at the forefront of gin development, learning better ways to make your favourite drink.
