The Ribble Valley Gin - Crafted In Lancashire

08/09/2020 A Gin from the silver spring where England drinks

Producing 50 bottles of gin per batch, using pure spring water from a private estate in the Trough of Bowland, and the finest natural botanicals. The Ribble Valley Gin Co., founded by young couple Justine & Luke, produces small-batch artisan gin in our distillery based on Longridge, Lancashire.

As avid craft gin fans, we wanted to bring something different to the gin market. So, after lots of research, development & most importantly taste testing; the duo decided to make our signature gin “Little Lane”, launching in February 2019.

Founders- Justine & Luke

The distillery is a stone outhouse, built-in 1888 and was originally used as a “piggery”, and with it having so much history and standing for over 130 years, we have kept most of the original features. We use an 83-liter column still for our gins and vapor infuse our chosen botanicals, giving each gin a smooth and clean finish.

All 4 gins won either silver or bronze at the 2020 London Spirits Competition. Distilled and crafted in the Ribble Valley All of the botanicals used in our signature gin “Little Lane” can be easily recognized in the beautiful British countryside. Our gin is lovingly created on our 83-liter column still in our stone outhouse, built-in 1888 from local stone, which at one time would have housed livestock.

Little lane gin has a unique layering of rich and delicate botanicals creating an elegant dusty floral based gin, that still gives an earthy kick. Using botanicals including Blackberry leaves, Meadowsweet, Nettles, Hawthorn Berries and Lime leaves, we have been able to stay true to the British countryside, as there is a native lime that has grown here since the last Ice Age, this gives our a gin a slight citrus undertone
