During lockdown we applied for, and obtained, our distillers (rectifiers and compounders) licence and are shortly to start making our own Stowey gin.

Inspired by the botanicals that grow in our garden, Stowey hedgerows and hilltops of the Quantocks we make micro batches of gin (no more than a dozen bottles at a time) in our 25 litre still.

Guests at The Old Cider House are welcome to taste a gin or two before dinner and we offer a special price of £7.50 for a double and tonic for those dining with us.

Current gins under production:

  • Stowey Garden – our ‘London’ gin. Ten garden botanicals, perfectly paired with Fever Tree Indian Tonic Water
  • Stowey Summer Fruit Gin – soft red fruits from the garden, perhaps with a Fever-Tree Refreshingly Light Sweet Rhubarb & Raspberry Tonic Water (when available)
  • Stowey Cucumber and Mint Gin – both from the garden, ideal for a hot summer’s day. Try with a Fever Tree Refreshingly Light Indian Tonic Water
