We’ve created a unique and intricate gin of ten select botanicals, distilled and bottled by us at Dorset’s first gin distillery, nestled in the back streets of Bournemouth.
Whilst still a proper classic gin, led by a dry Macedonian juniper heart, the subtle incorporation of the Dorset notes of elderberries, samphire and handpicked New Forest gorse flowers brings bright and refreshing lighter notes to Conker.
Brazenly refreshing and deftly smooth, the Dorset Dry is crafted to stand up on its own, poured and adored over ice.
Mix at your pleasure, but this gin can hold its own.
We are Conker Spirit, Dorset’s first gin distillery.
Free from the constraints of tradition, our spirits aren’t moulded by antiquated expectations.
With oodles of blind optimism and an open mind comes a fresh approach. There’s no ancient family recipe or mythical Master Distiller here, just a dogged pursuit of the new and exciting.
So we started from scratch, meticulously tweaking the Dorset Dry, fine-tuning the recipe sip by sip to compose a fresh approach to gin with a ruthless focus on quality.
No gimmicks. No fuss. Just top-notch small batch gin distilled in Dorset from British wheat spirit and New Forest Spring Water.
That's the spirit.
