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.
