St Giles Gin – Norwich
St. Giles is an award-winning gin distillery founded by Simon Melton. Inspired by his global travels Simon became an expert on gin and in particular the botanicals used. Meeting Peter Margree towards the end of 2015, a similarly well-travelled gin expert but also an experienced distiller who shared Simon’s vision, they embarked on a project to produce the best gin they could, using the finest botanicals from around the world without compromising on flavour, ingredients or equipment
