About company

Who are Ditchling Spirits?

 We are a group made up of family & friends that live in a beautiful part of Southern England, a small village called Ditchling, nestled in the foothills of the South Downs in Sussex.

Inspired by the history of the local arts and crafts movement and the natural world  surrounding our village, we decided  initially to try and make a gin which resonated with what we are lucky enough to have right here that could be enjoyed by everyone, everywhere.

Ditchling Gin was thus born & launched at our local village Ball in the summer of 2019.

What’s special about your gin?

We use 100%  UK grain spirit. The purity of which means we only use botanicals to enhance the flavour, not mask anything unpleasant. 

Our recipe is very much a London Dry recipe, so no fashionable flavours, we infuse ‘Coriander, Juniper, Cassia Bark, Orange Lemon and, Almond’ and let it steep for 6 days and nights,  before it is blended down  to 40% ABV  with the help of some pure Sussex spring water.

 Any other Products?

Yes indeed, we have a secret alchemist working with us who has been very busy.  This meant at the end of last year we were able to launch our latest product a Premium Toffee Vodka called Fling. Using the same high-quality UK grain spirit, this time lightly infused with rum essence, molasses, a dash of vanilla and of course toffee. 

 How are you regarded in the market?

Well we can certainly say we have been noticed!

In October both Ditchling Gin & Ditchling Fling  won silver medals at the  Drink Business ‘Global Premium Spirits masters’ awards, which was a real honour for us as newcomers to sit alongside established names in the business.

Our Ditchling Gin label then won both a Gold and a Highly Commended in the ‘Harpers Design Award’, sitting alongside global brands with mega budgets.

The label design reflects the beauty and simplicity of the arts and crafts movement, once an important facet of our village. 

 What next?

We want to ensure as many people as possible get the opportunity to appreciate our drinks not just in the UK but internationally. 

We will continue to look for opportunities to expand and are happy to discuss potential partnerships with Distributors and buyers worldwide.

We will continue to strive to find new and exciting recipes to add to our collection so that we can share them with you..
