Once Upon a Gin..
A simple concept born out of a desire to create a spirit with unique heritage and provenance, one which explores different and unusual flavour profiles, a spirit which is inspired by nature and captures what we’d like to call the Spirit of Herefordshire. Unlike other spirits Gin has always been regarded as that quintessential English drink, a little bit traditional, a little bit safe! Here at Foxtail though we’ve make it our mission to dispel that and help you discover the true beauty in ‘Craft’ Gin. Making Gin isn’t easy, there’s a lot to master and that’s why we only employ skilled and creative folk who love this tipple as much as us. Known amongst his friends as the ‘genius of gin’, Ross has an uncompromised approach to gin-making. His passion for Gin is matched only by his love of the outdoors and endurance events which some say is the source of his inspiration for new flavour profiles.
Water can rust iron so imagine what it does to your insides, its much better to drink Gin!
We employ many traditional techniques in making our Gin, but we also draw on the power of modern science to capture the amazing aromas and flavours of our delicate botanicals.
The gin and tonic has saved more Englishmen’s lives, and minds, than all the doctors in the Empire” – Winston Churchill
