At the Malvern Three Counties Autumn Show we were delighted to be awarded 1st Place for peoples choice over the whole weekend.
After producing infused gins for a number of years for personal consumption using a base gin and adding flavours it became obvious to us that we should try and develop a gin that captured the beautiful place in which we live.
We began to explore the banks of the River Severn, the hedgerows of the family farm and the fruits of the Wyre Forest. We mixed these with other locally grown produce to balance the flavour profile and then blended with a unique mix of the standard botanicals used in flavouring gin – Wyre Forest Gin was created.
In the creation of Wyre Forest Gin our whole company ethos and philosophy was also born. If we could try to forage or source as much locally grown produce as possible in conjunction with the use of local businesses, then we could truly produce a gin that was born and bred in Bewdley.
From branch to bottle, a 100% natural product that was owned, created and supported by the local community and of course could be enjoyed by the local community.
Oh my, I like this already. Think dark forest gateau-style rich fruitiness.
This is punchy and rich from the off. The dark fruits are holding their own, with strong raspberry and blackberry tang to complement the juniper. There’s something a little contradictory here… fennel maybe? I wasn’t expecting it but I’m not mad about it either.
Far gentler than I was expecting, fruity and lingering.
This is a bit of a party in a bottle. I’d like to make it last a while in a gin and tonic.”

Rich and juicy with an array of hedgerow fruit: blackcurrant, blackberry and raspberry.
Blackberry jam with lemon and a touch of raspberry ripple ice cream. A splash of juniper is followed by rich, creamy vanilla and notes of crystallised violets.
Delicate and perfumed on the finish with notes of hibiscus and rose and a minimal alcohol warmth.
A fun and fruity gin that would be delightful in a Bramble or mixed with lemon tonic for a crisp, refreshing long drink.”
