6 O’clock Gin is a range of strikingly-smooth artisan gins, handcrafted in small batches, using traditional skills and only the best natural ingredients. We are a craft gin brand owned and operated by the family-run, artisan spirit company, Bramley & Gage, on the outskirts of Bristol. The name was inspired by our long-held family tradition of indulging in a G&T at 6 o’clock; a custom still enjoyed at the distillery and shared by gin-lovers all over the world.
The 6 O’clock story starts nearly 30 years ago, when Edward Kain, and his wife Penny, owned a fruit farm in Devon. To put their surplus produce to good use, they made delicious fruity liqueurs and sold them with some considerable success.
Some years later, Michael and Felicity took over their parents’ now prosperous distillery and set about perfecting the gin recipe. The signature smoothness that defines our gin flows from ‘Kathleen’, our unique ‘double sphere’ copper pot still. The spirit has prolonged contact with copper during distillation and only the pure heart of each run makes the cut. Together this creates the strikingly smooth 6 O’clock experience for you to enjoy.
