Shed 1 Distillery

Welcome to Cumbria’s, and possibly the UK’s, smallest gin distillery!

Based, in a shed, in the lovely market town of Ulverston, we’re producing small batch (36, 50cl bottles per run), big flavour gins. As we say, smooth enough to be sipped, bold enough to be mixed.

We have three standards available all year round.

Cuckold’s Revenge is named after Andy’s character, the cuckolded Master Ford in Merry Wives, which he toured with Northern Broadsides in 2016.  This is a classic base of juniper and coriander balanced with cardamom and star anise, rounded with fresh orange and lemon zest with a hint of cinnamon.

Giggle in the Ginnel was created for a party we had in the ginnel (Northern English for alleyway) next to our house.  A marvellous time was had!  Again, we begin with juniper and coriander then broadened with a mix of angelica, star anise, nutmeg, almond and lime flower.  These are then married to elderberries and fresh orange zest which gives a soft, yet complex finish.

​Fancy Frolic.  Whilst dog walking on a wintry beach thoughts turned to hazy, summer days in the sun, frolicking around on the sand.  Those thoughts led to a gin with a lovely sunny aspect whose mix of ginger, strawberries and 3 types of lime: petals, leaf and fresh zest, can be enjoyed all year round!  Who can resist a frolic?
