Cumbria’s, and possibly the UK’s, smallest gin distillery.
Andy and Zoe Arnold-Bennett established Shed 1 Gin in October, 2016. From our 7 foot square garden shed, we classically distill our contemporary-style small batch, big flavoured gin. As we say, smooth enough to be sipped, bold enough to be mixed. How small is small batch? 36, 50cl bottles per run.
We have 3 gins available throughout the year: Cuckold’s Revenge, Fancy Frolic & Giggle in the Ginnel. Festive Tipple is our winter season gin. We also produce a limited edition Valentine’s gin called Shed Loads of Love.
Just 10 months after we launched we received a Great Taste 2 star (outstanding) Award for Cuckold’s Revenge. In 2018, we were a Cumbria Life Best Drinks Producer Finalist.
We have recently started producing Fancy Frolic gin chocolates. These are available from stockists and can be bought directly from us at markets & shows.
Fresh lemon, lime and orange zest are some of our gin ingredients. With the fruit that’s left over, Zoe makes gin jelly marmalade which we sell at markets and shows.
