The Mayfield Gin Story

Created by James Rackham, founder of artisanal spirits company, Emporia Brands, liveryman of The Worshipful Company of Distillers and resident of Mayfield, East Sussex.

The dramatic label depicts the story of St. Dunstan and & The Devil, an epic event which, the story goes, happened in the 10th Century in Mayfield Village.

Our hops were discovered as a wild hop growing in local hedge rows and is now cultivated in just one acre of a thirty acre hop farm in Salehurst. Sussex Hop is now an approved variety and gives an amazing citrus and hop character to our fabulous Sussex gin.


The botanicals

Mayfield Sussex Hop Gin is a recipe of 8 natural botanicals:

  • Juniper berries of course, the signature botanical, followed by our
  • Sussex Hop
  • Orange Peel
  • Lemon Peel
  • Coriander
  • Angelica
  • Orris
  • Liquorice

Each botanical is ‘micro distilled’ in our copper pot still, then blended together to create a unique personality.


Tasting characteristics….
