About Bottomley Distillers and Pin Gin
Pin Gin is produced by family-owned Bottomley Distillery in Lincolnshire, UK. Alan, the head distiller, willing to honour the area and put the knowledge of distilling spirits he inherited from his father, decided one day that Lincolnshire should be also known for the best handcrafted gin, Pin Gin.
The inspiring story of Pin Gin began one day in early 2016 when Alan came back home after work and told his pregnant wife, Amy, "We are going to make gin and grow Christmas trees". Naturally Amy carried on making dinner and did not pay much attention until the day when 1ltr still arrived, shortly followed by some juniper berries.
After numerous experiments, 19 different recipes later, Alan came up with the one and only - Pin Gin.
Pin Gin name is coming from the creative wordplay. Remembering Alan's desire to grow Christmas trees led to pine needles, needles and pins, pin rhymed with gin – and that was that, Pin Gin was born.
And not only born, but became a success. Being featured in the Vogue Hot List, receiving lots of fantastic reviews and endless love from all the gin fans, Pin Gin is making its way to the top of the world's leaderboard in small batch gins.
