Bottomley Distillers is a family owned distillery with a heritage that dates back to the 1950s. The original founder, Mr Stansfield Bottomley, was a small whiskey maker that started out in West Yorkshire before moving to Lincolnshire in the early 1980s.
Alan Bottomley, his youngest son, has always been fascinated by spirit production. Inspired by this inherited skill and the rise of the craft market, he decided in 2016 to modernize these almost lost techniques.
Amy Conyard of Bottomley Distillers said, “We’re excited to be working with St. Barnabas again for the second year running in a local cause. All profits from the sale of this gin go directly to St. Barnabas Hospice and we hope this will ultimately result in a sizable donation that we can make to charity. “
