Gilpin's Gin

GILPINS_bottle and shaker_2.jpg

Gilpin's Westmorland Extra Dry Gin

is a modern classic London Dry Gin.​

Made from pure English grain spirit

pot-distilled with just eight botanicals. 

This is a gin crafted for true gin lovers.

Gilpin's Gin bottle + label captures the simplicity of modern bold design combined with the heritage of the back story. I wanted to create a beautiful bottle and label with modern classic look and makes you feel like its been on the drinks cart for generations.

The heritage

In 1207 Sir Richard “the Rider” de Gilpin fought and killed the beast and for his courage was granted the Wild Boar of Westmorland as the symbol of the Gilpin family which endures to this day alongside the Gilpin family motto:

"Dictis Factisque Simplex"   "Simple in word and deed"

Sir Richard went on to fame as the scribe of Magna Carta at Runnymede which he attended with the Baron of Kendal in 1215 to persuade King John to introduce the rule of law into England.


400 years later Sir Richard’s descendent, Antwerp-based spice trader George Gilpin was Secretary of the "Merchant Adventures" when he was appointed by Queen Elizabeth the First as her Ambassador to the Low Countries at the time of the Spanish Armada. 

The rest is history...

Gilpin's Gin recaptures the simplicity of classic London Gin, a tribute to these two great men and their place in the history of the Spirit of England.
