163. Discover the secrets for making great gin – in the Northamptonshire countryside

Listen on

Episode notes

Head deep into the Northamptonshire countryside to visit the Warners Gin distillery near Rothwell. Warner’s Gin was set up by Tom and Tina Warner on their family farm in 2012 with an emphasis on natural, locally grown ingredients. Since then, things have taken off – especially the transformation of much of the farm for nature. Hear Tom’s fascinating insights into why "booze made humanity" and explore the history and lore around gin.

Later we meet Rachel Sutherland, who has the enviable job of tasting the gins for quality – and for devising new flavours.
