Wessex Downs, creating spirit brands

It was a conversation between friends that generally goes nowhere. But for James Gurney, Robin Horrex and Phil Howarth, it was the start of something extremely exciting.

It took time.  
They researched numerous methods and techniques, made many gin friends, found ourselves foraging for botanicals, reading all the books and even getting their distilling qualifications along the way.
They also found a great use for the honey from their beehives!

They are now happily sharing their award-winning, expertly crafted, unique creations with the world.

Their focus is on creating distinctive spirit brands, sumptuous flavours and making them totally and utterly irresistible – both in looks and in flavours.


The award-winning Blowing Stone ‘Ashdown Series’ has been inspired by the rich local heritage surrounding the distillery in the village of Compton, West Berkshire and celebrates the profound impact of this early medieval period on the course of England’s history.

In conceiving and developing the Blowing Stone gins,  they have set out to ‘distil history.’  

They bring the events of 9th century Wessex to life through both the design of the spirit bottles and through the way in which they  have developed the flavour profiles.
