About Us

What we do

Imagine creating a unique gin only available for you be it for your wedding, a special occasion, your corporate clients or to sell at your event location. Imagine that gin being crafted from botanicals that reflect your preferences, your brand or your heritage; botanicals you help choose and are blended into a gin that you can be proud of.

 

At Sandhills we combine the use of traditional copper pot distillation with innovative cold vacuum distillation. Our approach enables us to craft unique, high quality, small batch products quickly. We will work with you to craft a gin that reflects you, your venue or the event you are planning. Not only will we co-create a quality gin with you but we will label it so that it becomes your very own.

  • Weddings: We will work with the bride and groom, help choose key botanicals based on discussing preferences for flavour profiles and work on some blends that can be tasted in order to arrive at the perfect gin to reflect the happy couple. We will then produce both 10cl favours (enough for a couple of good G&T’s) and can provide 70cl bottles that can be used to serve at the wedding and be given as gifts. A bespoke label finishes off the quality presentation of this unique gift.
  • Event locations: If you host events, perhaps for members, or you are a restaurant targeting specific clientele imagine having your own gin, a gin that is uniquely created to reflect your brand. We will work with you to select botanicals and create something completely aligned with your brand. Our approach to quality and ability to preserve the very nature of the botanicals we use will result in something very special: something you can sell or give to clients and be proud of…your brand in a bottle.
  • Corporate: Want to impress clients, make them feel special, have something that is a talking point and reflects your brand? Work with BespokeBySandhills to co-create a high-quality, unique gin that will reflect your brand. We also work with top teams to use the creation of a bespoke gin as an opportunity for team development. By linking working together with the distiller to agree on a bespoke gin with tools such as MBTI and team effectiveness models you can improve your effectiveness and have a lot of fun while you are doing it!

Benefits of our approach to co-creating a bespoke gin:

  • A truly interactive experience where you really are part of the development process
  • The ability for you to co-create a totally unique, high-quality, hand-crafted gin that you can be proud of: for you, your event, your location or your organisation
  • The ability to retain purity and freshness of flavour for each of the botanicals you choose through our cold vacuum based distillation process
  • Create either a traditional gin or something different – there is almost nothing we cannot distil. One of our distillers loves distilling Christmas Puddings!
  • Re-order in small batches at any time and be assured of the consistency and quality of the product
  • Branded and labelled to suit your needs

The Process

We want your BespokeBySandhills experience to be one you enjoy and remember. We recognise that creating a unique gin is unlikely to be something you have done before.

You will have ideas and thoughts but will want some guidance and to play a real part in co-creating your gin.

 

There are some important stages of the process:

  • Being clear about what sort of gin you want
  • Being an integral part of the development process – tasting different alternatives (which is lots of fun) and making the final choice
  • Being involved in the final labelling and packaging choices to ensure that the final gin reflects your desires around brand and quality

You will have direct access to the distillers and to people with enough commercial and marketing experience to ensure that we hit the brief at all levels. Whether it is a bespoke gin for your wedding or a gin to serve at your location or to your corporate clients we have the experience (and the honesty) to ensure you are proud of the end result: a unique, hand-crafted, high quality gin.

Our approach utilises a copper pot distilled base gin. We have used the core botanicals of juniper, coriander, orris, cassia and some citrus elements. To be honest, the base tastes pretty good as it is but its simply the start point for the BespokeBySandhills enGINeering process.

You will select specific botanicals from an almost unlimited palette in consultation with our distiller. You might choose a citrus led or a floral led gin or you might opt for a more spicy tone: the choice is yours. Once you have chosen key botanicals we will create some distillates using our cold vacuum distillation process and these will then be blended with our base gin to create some samples.

Once you have agreed the recipe, the science of our approach, enGINeering, enables us to produce small batches of consistent flavour and quality. We keep the recipe so you can re-order whenever you want.
