ABOUTUS

We are a family owned distillery with a heritage that dates back to the 1950's with the original Mr Stansfield Bottomley.

Mr Bottomley was a small scale whisky producer, beginning in West Yorkshire before moving on to Lincolnshire in the early 1980's.

Alan Bottomley, his youngest son, was always fascinated by the production of spirit. In 2016, inspired by this inherited skill and the rise in the craft market, he decided to modernise those nearly lost techniques. With the agreement of partner Amy and their daughter Molly, Lincolnshire's oldest distillery was founded.

Set in the quaint market town of Louth in the Lincolnshire Wolds, we now produce our award winning brand, Pin Gin, along with white label projects. Most excitingly, we have just started casking Mr Bottomleys' original recipe - the only Lincolnshire Single Malt Whisky.
