Our story



After completing full careers in the British Army, Dawn and Mark decided to relocate to Devon. Both lovers of animals, 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.
