Launched in October 2016 by husband and wife team Andy & Zoe Arnold-Bennett in the market town of Ulverston, Cumbria. Shed 1 Distillery produces small batch, classically distilled with a contemporary-style, award-winning, craft gin, gin liqueur and gin marmalade.
We started in our garden shed and then moved to The Old Calf Shed in 2019. There, we opened a visitor bar and shop. We offer tours and tastings and we’re the first distillery in Cumbria where you can enjoy a Make Your Own Gin experience. We have also created an Afternoon G&Tea which consists of sweet treats with a botanical twist.
Since launching we’ve achieved over 10 awards, including 7 Great Taste Awards, a Cumbria Family Business Award and The Gin Guide Award: winner of small producer Environmental Sustainability, 2020. Our very first gin, Cuckold’s Revenge, is also featured in the latest edition of “101 Gins To Try Before You Die”!
You can order our online, with free, first class postage. If you live in the local area, we also offer free delivery.
