Our story



After completing full careers in the British Army, we decided to relocate to Devon. My husband and I are both lovers of animals, so we decided to set up our own smallholding amongst the rolling hills of West Devon.

Gotland sheep were a favourite on the smallholding from the beginning. A very tactile breed of sheep originally from Gotland, an island off the coast of Sweden, they became the inspiration for our Gin and remain an important part of West Devon life for us. After a busy day on the smallholding, we both enjoy relaxing with a glass of gin and tonic overlooking our flock, which gave us the idea to create our own hand-crafted premium gin.

In order to create a unique gin and maintain the link with our Gotland sheep, we explored a variety of Scandinavian fruits such as the lingonberry and after much experimenting infusing a diverse range of botanicals, Gotland Gin was born.

We love visitors here at Gotland Gin HQ and welcome arranged visits or parties to sample our amazingly smooth and refreshing gin and meet our sheep that were the inspiration behind the unique drink. Relax in our outside bar and unwind with views of rolling countryside that surround our small holding.

Botanicals


Our botanicals are what makes Gotland Gin unique and refreshing. We have developed our own blend of premium gin, taking inspiration from the beautiful countryside of West Devon, using its finest spring water alongside both traditional and non-traditional botanical blends.

We take the traditional gin botanicals such as juniper, coriander and angelica root, and blend them with lingonberry (a Scandinavian fruit), cardamom, pink peppercorns, fresh citrus, lemon peel, and hibiscus.

The result is an amazingly smooth and refreshing gin, with soft notes of lingonberry, cardamom and pink pepper followed by a fresh taste of citrus.

In our opinion, the perfect serve is a large measure of Gotland Gin over ice with a quality tonic water. Add a slice of fresh lime and a sprinkle of lingonberries or pink peppercorns to create a refreshingly unique drink. One glass just isn’t enough!
