Distilling in Darlington since December 2014. Our Distillers Licence allows us to make our own spirit from the finest “Pale Malt”. Coniscliffe Road in Darlington in Victorian times was Paradise Row Hence: “Darlington Distilled on Paradise Row"
WilkinsonEnglish. When considering joining in with the Gin revolution we decided that if we are to be Distillers we “will” be Distillers. We applied for our licence in July 2012 and after a great deal of form filling and fantastic help and understanding from the staff at HMRC we were eventually granted our licence in December 2014. A compounder’s or rectifier’s licence would have allowed us to buy our spirit from Scotland but we opted to “travel” the full journey. We begin with Maris Otter Pale Malt and brew a mash beer which takes 6 to 7 days to reach up to 14%abv. This, after three distillations along with carefully chosen botanicals and special blending, becomes our WilkinsonEnglish Gin. The same plant and equipment is used for our Spiced Rum and Single Malt Spirit.(Not Whisky as it is only in an Oak Barrel for three months). Whichever of our Darlington Distilled Spirits you choose be assured of the attention and care it has been given.VIEW OUR GIN
