Warner Edwards’ elderflower gin

Published on August 22, 2013

Northamptonshire-based artisan gin distiller Warner Edwards – members of our Great Food Club network – has launched a limited-edition elderflower gin.

In keeping with the ethos of Warner Edwards – founded less than a year ago by friends Tom Warner and Sion Edwards – the elderflowers used have been harvested on the Northamptonshire farm where the gin is created in a converted 200-year-old barn.

The launch of the Warner Edwards elderflower gin, which is available to buy now, is the latest success story for the distilling duo who have scooped a string of prestigious awards already, including a silver medal in the International Wine and Spirit Competition for its Harrington Dry Gin.

Tom Warner said: “We are proud and thrilled to announce the launch of our second creation. During the short flowering season, we infuse our Harrington Dry Gin with fresh elderflower petals, handpicked from the hedgerows around our farms.

“It gives us a great sense of achievement to be able to present a second creation within our first year as debut distillers.”

Sion Edwards added: “The end result is a fantastically smooth gin, with a hint of sweet elderflower – it’s the perfect late summer tipple. We have produced a limited batch of 2000 bottles for 2013 and the latest addition to the Warner Edwards gin family is proving popular.”

As well as being stocked locally Warner Edwards gin can be found in some of Europe and the UK’s leading bars and stores including Harvey Nichols in London.
