W.E. are Warner Edwards, great friends, innovative craft distillers and creators of award winning, hand-made artisan gins. We are passionate about quality, flavour and authenticity with a core goal to save the world from mediocre gin!
From our 200 year old barn on Falls Farm in the picturesque village of Harrington, Northamptonshire, we lovingly distil a range of small batch, fantastically smooth, award winning gins using our farm’s natural spring water, grain spirit and home-grown ingredients. Each batch is small, and every single bottle is handcrafted by us, from the filling to the wax seal and label finishing.
United in spirit
With an upbringing in farming, our dream had always been to set up a business on the farm and produce a product that was farm-made, hand finished and steeped in provenance. The original idea of distilling essential oils quickly turned to distilling spirits and creating bespoke flavours using the farm and its hedgerow botanicals. Our craft distillery was born on the 6th December 2012 when we sold our first bottle.
The village of Harrington is said to be 'built on rock and water', with natural springs in abundance across Falls Farm. The top fields of the farm are a scheduled monument recognised by English Heritage and were once the park and gardens of a medieval manor house, complete with the remains of monastic fish ponds. The water used in the distillation of the gin is from a spring 300 metres from the distillery.
