the forest distillery
The home of Forest Gin & Forest Whisky
Made by our family with love
The Forest Distillery is a unique place where the Bond Family and our small team lovingly distil small batches of spirits from wild foraged, locally sourced and organic ingredients combined with our pure, natural spring water.
We began distilling from our home back in 2014 and now produce small batch spirits of the very highest quality at our distillery high above the clouds in the Peak District National Park.
Located at the 209 year old Cat & Fiddle above Macclesfield Forest, we are officially the UK’s highest altitude distillery.
The botanicals that we collect from the forest bring wild, fresh flavours to our drinks, and the spring water here is filtered through the peat of the moorlands. The barley used to create our whisky is grown just down the hill by Cheshire Farmers, then our fermenters are left open to encourage wild yeast. The oak used in our casks is grown and coopered in England. Our bottes are hand-made in Stoke-on-Trent featuring bespoke artwork, and our distillery dog is called Ted.
We truly believe that Forest Gin & Forest Whisky are amongst the world’s finest spirits. Thankfully, many of you seem to agree with us.
