Our Story

Our Story

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.

Father and son run business, both of them were very welcoming and very knowledgeable. If I am ever in this area again I would definitely pay a visit.

Me and my girlfriend had a lovely weekend away to bath, and on are back home we stopped off at the distillery and got a tour around the place and a tasting of all the spirits they do, I’m a rum and gin guy, I can honestly say I’m very very picky when it comes to gin but wow that gin is incredible the aromatics of it is different level.

We booked a tour of Exmoor well in advance, though not totally necessary. This quaint, family run gin distillery.... It's going to be the next big thing!! The Gin and the Rum are great and they are doing some pretty interesting things here. Everything is from scratch, unlike the big guys, and the product is great. If you're close, totally worth the visit, and if not, also worth the detour!

Have had a wonderful morning today, called the Distillery to see if a last minute delivery could be made and sent on our behalf. Ben at Exmoor Distillery went out of his way, personally to make this happen, he arranged a special presentation box, and even hand wrote the "Thank you" note to be included in it. Great Product, Great Service and Great GIN !

A little sip of Devon heaven...We dropped in to visit this fine establishment and were greeted with warmth and enthusiasm. Ben, one of the family who run this little distillery, shared his story and the story of the business, generously offering us tasters of all their products.Importantly, the love and integrity they pour into their gin, vodka and rum is more than evident in the tasting. They even get the water for all of this from a special borehole directly into the water table to maintain its purity.A fantastic experience as a visit, and we'll be reminded of it every time we sup this beautiful gin. I would encourage anyone in the area to support this superb, small local business!

I was treated to a tour of their facility in Dulverton for my birthday. On arrival we were informed that they had no electric and subsequently no heating due to the storm, but she was happy to continue with our tour. The owner is bubbly and most welcoming. Her drive and passion for their business is amazing. She explained the process of the making of their gin and rum, from start to bottling. Obviously our favourite part was the tasting, which certainly didn’t disappoint - very yummy! We would highly recommend!! Thank you 😊
