Based in the beautiful North Shropshire countryside we are busily producing whisky, gin, vodka and apple brandy (so far) in Hilda, our 1000 litre Kothe still. Henstone Distillery started whisky production soon after our still was installed in November 2017.
We are one of a very small number of English distilleries making our own wash (the beer that is distilled to produce whisky) on site. We have a philosophy of using only the finest malted barleys to produce a distinctive and characteristic new-make spirit. The spirit is currently being aged in a mixture of ex-bourbon, Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez casks and the first batch of whisky will be released in early 2021.
Fortunately you can try our gin, vodka and apple brandy now as they do not undergo such a long maturing process. Pop in to the Stonehouse bar and you can enjoy an Oswestry gin & tonic, or buy a bottle or two of our beautiful award winning spirits.
Open Mon-Wednesday 9am-5pm, Thursday-Friday 9am-7pm, Saturday 10am-7pm. Pizza available Thursday-Friday 5pm-7pm, Saturday 1pm-7 and distilled pm.
