Launched in 2017, Mary and Rich had a vision to craft a new range of gins that were genuinely different than others in terms of flavour, quality and packaging. They saw a great opportunity to create something very different, something with big, bold flavour profiles, bright modern packaging and transparency of ingredients.
The brand was born in Oxfordshire and operated from their tiny converted garage. The couple have since expanded and have a small unit in neighbouring Gloucestershire where they have been developing more exciting new Gins for your enjoyment. Mary and Rich still distil, fill and label each and every bottle by hand (no contract distilling here), passionately produced using hot and cold distillation techniques to delivery a massive burst of flavour.
Using a unique dual distillation process the Gins they produce are quite different and distinctive. Using traditional processes and equipment, each distillation run is tiny. The alcohol and a minimum ten quality botanicals are slowly distilled in a traditional copper alembic pot still, fusing the oils and tastes together creating a very high strength Gin. This is then diluted with pure water to a much more drinkable 41.5% where the flavours and aromas are perfectly expressed.
Finally the two distillations are ‘twisted’ together to produce the finished Gin – perfectly balanced and bursting with fresh aromas and taste. The current Twisting Spirits range consists of three premium Gins initially (more exciting Gins will be added soon); Douglas-Fir, Kaffir Lime and Lemongrass and Earl Grey Gin.
Quite literally Twisting Spirits!
