Like any classic movie, it was love at first sight when John and Nicola Smith first met in a cocktail bar over 20 years ago and shared their hobbies of travel, food and gin-sampling. With a love of the South West countryside and fresh air, the couple have lived in Dulverton for 12 years, where they have made their home and love being a part of the local community.
After years of travelling the world, the couple set up Exmoor Distillery in January 2018 and have turned their hands to producing a flavourful gin that everyone is now enjoying. With John’s flair for being a craftsman and cabinetmaker in his spare time, he is never happier than getting hands-on at the distillery. Combine this with Nicola’s efficiency of running a small business and Exmoor Distillery is quickly becoming known as a leading small batch artisan gin distillery of note.
This gin is amazing. I tasted it at a recent local gin tasting event and nothing else compared. I just kept going back to taste again to check that my taste buds were deceiving me. They weren’t, it really is fantastic and unique.
We are already on our 3rd bottle! Despite owning 20+ different gins, yours is now our firm favourite! Even better that we live just up the roads are sure to never run out!
Our first purchase of Northmoor gin. The taste is superb and smooth, well worth trying chilled neat before the tonic is added. Northmoor is great just with a quality tonic, We also tried with a few garnishes and a slice of orange or a slice of the peel works really well. There are many gin producers on the market and this one is up there with the best if you want a premium quality gin. Ordering and delivery was quick and easy. We will be purchasing more.
Absolutely delicious gin, bursting with botanicals and a lovely citrus note. I tried it with Fevertree tonic and lemon but it would be amazing with lime or pink grapefruit.
Northmoor Gin is the best I’ve ever tasted!
