Hepple Spirits Gin Gift Boxes
Discover the true taste of wild juniper with the high-fidelity, multi-award-winning Hepple Gin, which is produced on the hills of Hepple in Northumberland.
Hepple Spirits was founded to reveal the true, invigorating taste of wild juniper. The story began on the hills of Hepple, in Northumberland, one of Britain’s last wild sanctuaries for juniper.
Celebrated foraging chef Valentine Warner brought legendary bartender Nick Strangeway and distillery developer Cairbry Hill up to Hepple in the remote Northumbrian National Park to meet Walter Riddell, owner of the Hepple estate, in March 2013. A bone-chilling wind was blowing from the east, as ever.
The original plan was to make something esoteric, but out on the moor the wind hounded and the chaps took refuge amongst a stand of ancient junipers, glittering with green and purple berries.
As they huddled amongst the shaking juniper, bejewelled with berries, it became clear that something core to gin had never been fully revealed – the true essence of gin; juniper.

Cutting Edge Technology
Hepple, located high in the remote Northumbrian Hills, has one of the purest natural environments in Britain and as a result juniper thrives. The team – which features super-star distiller Chris Garden – hand-pick the juniper berries from the wild sanctuary when still green. These form the centrepiece to the gin.
To capture the true taste of juniper, the team had to rethink every stage of the gin-making process. They use cutting-edge technology such as supercritical extraction, ultrasonics and other high precision techniques to create a gin that is truly spectacular.
Hepple Gin Flavour Profile
On The Nose
There is an immediate fresh scent of green apple, bright grapefruit and spicy juniper. This then opens up to reveal underlying notes of Douglas Fir, and fragrant blackcurrant.
The initial fresh citrus flavours evolve into unexpected ripe cantaloupe melon, the spicy fragrant juniper continues to coat the palate. There is a luscious sweet mouthfeel, which is both juicy and quenching.
Extremely long and this is where the juniper reveals itself further with flavours alternating between sandalwood and cedar with a notable savoury presence that complements the sweet blackcurrant and liquorice. The sweet juiciness is maintained throughout the finish.
