Robin and Jane Cannon are the couple behind this tasty gin. They purchased Newton House and 60 acres of gardens and grounds in Yeovil ten years ago.
The couple took on a huge restoration project but now every square inch of the house, outbuildings and grounds have been lovingly restored.
In a moment of inspiration Robin and Jane decided to use their unique spring water together with their homegrown botanicals to create a small batch, handcrafted gin.
The gin was originally created in Hermione, a 10-litre copper. After many trials and a few errors, the unique recipe was finally agreed and Newton House Gin was born. Their gin is now distilled in Henrietta, a 60-litre copper still.
The distillery is located in the old dairy of the house and Robin is the resident and enthusiastic master distiller, chief bottler and corker. He ensures the consistency of each distillation. Jane is responsible for the precision labelling, decoration and packing of each bottle.
Newton House Gin has flavours of garden freshness, subtle nuances of ancient botanicals and delightful surprises for your taste buds.
For a memorable G&T add ice with Fever Tree Tonic Water with a trimmed peel of lime. Newton House Gin is also delicious on ice and sipped neat. Just add a bruised mint leaf or three and a lime wedge to enliven the flavours.
