Bashall Spirits is a family-run spirits company, bringing to life flavours from the past through long-cherished family recipe books from our home in the idyllic village of Bashall Eaves in the Forest of Bowland.
The idea for Bashall Spirits was born when owners Fiona and Hamish realised their love of gin was the perfect route to bringing recipes from 18th century family recipe books to a wider audience.
Bashall Spirits Damson and Elderberry Gin has been announced as winner of The Gin Guide ‘Flavoured Category’ for 2021. Bashall Spirits’ entire flavour range (Orange & Quince, Parkin Cake, Damson & Elderberry) also received silver medals in the 2021 London Spirits Competition, joining the London Dry which had gained silver the year before.

The Ribble Valley Gin Co, founded by young couple Justine & Luke, produce small batch artisan gin in their distillery based in Longridge.
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, they have kept most of the original features. They use an 83-litre column still for their gin and vapour infuse our botanicals for a smooth finish to their gin and botanicals to reflect the natural beauty of the Ribble Valley.
