Blackdown Artisan Spirits
West Sussex
01428 707654


Blackdown Artisan Spirits was established in 2013 by Sarah Thompson and her husband Nathan. Nestled in the foothills of the Blackdown Hill, West Sussex, the distillery is surrounded by 40 acres of Silver Birch trees and these were the inspiration for the first ever Sussex Dry Gin. Also included in the portfolio are a Vodka; Vermouth; a Black Cherry Liqueur and an Eldeberryport.

Blackdown Artisan Spirits prides itself on using only natural botanicals, the key ingredient being Silver Birch sap. This unique ingredient adds softness to the products, and serves to make the other botanical flavours sharper and more pronounced. As well as focusing on quality and provenance, Blackdown Artisan Spirits is also proud to use only British suppliers for all its ingredients and packaging, ensuring that these products are truly British.

Blackdown Artisan Spirits are distilled from the heart and produced by hand in small batches – they aim to always stand out from the crowd.
