Wessex Spirits is me!
I’m Kate and I make herb infused gin and rum, bespoke gin and hold exclusive events at my Tasting Room. I offer a completely personal touch and that’s why my small batch spirits are different. Each bottle is handcrafted in tiny batches by me, bottled by me, labelled and numbered by hand by me using locally sourced, natural ingredients and no sugar or nasties.
Wessex Spirits launched as Test Valley Gin in 2017 from my Grandad’s back garden. Inspired by my Mum’s sloe gin I wanted to create something completely different but just as delicious. Formerly an English teacher I was no stranger to drinking gin, and two children later the talent increased ! So the leap from drinking it to making it wasn’t too great.
After introducing new brands of gin, I became Wessex Spirits, now based in my own premises in Andover where I also have a Tasting Room for exclusive events. Currently I make six brands of my own gin, one rum (but watch this space) and bespoke gin for private and business clients.
If you’d like to pop in to say hello or try a gin or two, do drop in at the Gin Palace in Andover. The bottles are always open!
