It's all about the gin
Here at Black Cat Distillery, it’s all about the gin!
It’s both a personal and professional quest, from growing the raw product right through to processing and distillation. The Black Cat Gin team is made up of one-part viticulturist and one-part distiller. Our technical and industry backgrounds give us the expertise, skill and passion to tackle the myriad of challenges that crop up yet keep that clear focus on the goal - to produce classic, handcrafted, small batch gins that people enjoy drinking.
Ultimately, we like drinking the fruits of our labour and looking back, it seems obvious that once we had the time and space, we would want to distil our own version of our favourite spirit. So from our original path in the wine industry, it was logical to step onto the opposite ‘railway track’ and create Black Cat Gin.
Spending our days at the commercial coal face of the wine/spirit industries, we are often knee deep in the raw ingredients. Our downtime lets us take these elements and distil them with our favourite herbs, spices and fruits to craft the Black Cat Gin blends.
Some of the waste produced by the wine industry can be re-harvested to create pure grape spirit. And so, for us, gin is as much about industry sustainability as it is about adding value to create something deliciously unique.
