A little bit more
A little bit more information and where to find us.
Based in Halesfield the Distillery is small and humble but still produces high quality Spirits available across the county of Shropshire and beyond. Everything starts with the fruits. Their quality from the farms of rural Shropshire provide the flavours of the Spirits so the selection and preparation of these is one (if not the most) of the most important stages in our process. The Stills do their work and the alcohol is collected, diluted to 40% and bottled. As you may have noticed the bottles are a little bit different. They have been specially selected from Steklarna-Hrastnik of Slovenia; a world renowned glass maker they offer a truly beautiful bottle of the highest quality. Each bottle is hand sealed with special wax. It is melted in a Bain-Marie and each bottle is repeatedly dipped into the molten wax to build up the layers to the distinctive rounded top. Whilst soft each bottle has our Loggerhead pressed into it with a hand seal.
