Our Story

The Brand Origins

Drawn by a common passion for craft distilling, in 2013 a group of friends came together to create a new kind of distillery, producing handcrafted, artisan spirits with uncompromising quality. In an extraordinary location on the Duke of Northumberland’s Albury Estate, a group of dilapidated farm buildings on the banks of the legendary & mystical Silent Pool has been transformed to become the home of the Silent Pool Distillers.

The Distillery

In keeping with the original vision for a sustainable business, a vintage wood-fired steam boiler was restored to power the hand-built copper still, created for Silent Pool Distillers by the Arnold Holstein Company in the Lake Constance area of Germany. The distillery was completed with the arrival of the bespoke stainless steel tanking, sourced from the Vipara Valley in Slovenia, tanking designed to hold both the spirit and the crystal clear water used to make signature gin.

Locally Sourced Ingredients

They sourced local ingredients, exotic botanicals, and experimented with all kinds of recipes – sometimes failing, forever seeking, but always refusing to compromise on quality. Until finally, they created a gin of rare taste and beauty using over 20 botanicals in the distillation process and christening Silent Pool Gin after its place of birth. It’s popularity quickly spread from the local community to now amassing an enviable reputation across the world, winning an abundance of prestigious industry awards.
