We are proud of the hard work that we have put in to ensure that every one of our processes, from day one, have been created, designed, installed and commissioned by us here at Yorkshire Dales Distillery.


Our three hand-built stills incorporate copper plated columns and enable the flavouring of spirits through 100% vapour infusion.  It is these features and the properties of our unique and ancient natural mineral water from Swaledale that enable us to produce such notably smooth spirits.  The variety in size of our Stills means we can accommodate and meet the requirements of many of our customers as well as the expansion of our own Yorkshire Dales Distillery spirit ranges.


Inspired by the rugged and challenging beauty of our home, the Yorkshire Dales, our own range of handcrafted London Dry Gins, Vodka and Rum are beautifully smooth and utterly unique. For us, Yorkshire provides an exceptional range of high quality products and we believe in supporting those small businesses around us and showcasing this excellence to the rest of the world. Therefore, many of our botanicals, all of our fruit and our water are sourced from local producers. Our honey is drawn from hives less than 2 miles away from the Distillery from a small family of beekeepers. We even hay smoke (Yorkshire hay) our own black peppercorns and dry our own grapefruit peel.

Having been created and developed by us at the Distillery, all of our spirits are distilled in very small batches before they are hand bottled, labelled and packaged ready for you to enjoy.



Established in 2016 by Sarah and Tony Brotherton, Yorkshire Dales Distillery has provided an outlet for their passion for handcrafted quality spirits and to provide sustainable and meaningful training and employment to Service Veterans and Dependants, young people, ex-offenders and the long term unemployed.  The Distillery was born from a longstanding family love for the industry, built on decades of experience and work within the sector.  After spending most of Tony’s Army career in North Yorkshire and Sarah’s family coming from nearby Teesside, the Yorkshire Dales made the perfect base to launch their business. Good job really – Yorkshire Dales Distillery in Chelmsford would have been a bit off.

Tony’s cottage farm living grandparents were the original G&T fans, inspiring Tony’s passion for home grown, quality ingredients. When times were hard, Grandad would scrimp on the gin for himself to make sure Grandma always had her share. Two values we carry forward today – supporting and caring for others and ensuring locally grown produce is celebrated accordingly.

There is a rapidly growing team here at Yorkshire Dales Distillery of Veterans and Dependants, young people, ex offenders and the long term unemployed.
