Made by our family with love

The Forest Distillery is a unique 17th century barn, nestled 1,200ft above sea level within the beautiful Macclesfield Forest in the Peak District National Park.

It is here that the Bond family and a small team of weasels daily distil spirits of the very highest quality. We predominately use organic and foraged ingredients where possible in our products, and all water used in the process comes from our own cool, clear natural spring.

Our goal is to make the best tasting products that we possibly can, from the finest locally sourced ingredients where possible. We do as much as possible by hand – right down to the bottling.

We are VERY proud of our little distillery, and hope that you love it is as much as we do.

From our kitchen table, to the World’s best bars

Our story began in 2014 when Lindsay & Karl Bond began home distilling tiny batches of spirits from the kitchen table in our home next to Macclesfield Forest.

These initial distillations were purely for our own enjoyment, so we threw in handfuls of berries, mosses and ferns which our 6 year old daughter Harriet had foraged from the forest and surrounding hills. Slowly but surely, word spread about our gin, and we decided to decant the liquid into porcelain bottles to see if anybody would be interested in tasting it…

We are very proud to say that things have rapidly moved on. The Forest Distillery is now housed within a beautiful stone barn in the Peak District National Park. We now distil single malt English Whisky in our state-of-the art 500 litre pot still. Our gin is recognised as one of the worlds finest spirits having won an unprecedented two separate double-gold medals at the San Francisco Spirit Awards. Our products are sold in the finest bars, restaurants, hotels and lounges around the world.

We are still a tiny, independent distillery, and between 5 of us here, we continue to produce our products in the same ways that we did at home, using pestle & mortars and tiny pot stills. We forage for our ingredients regularly in the Forest and we always do our very best to ensure that these fresh, natural flavours come through to your glass.
