Hoyle Bottom Spirits Ltd brought its flagship product, tinker brook gin, to market in 2019 as an homage to the cotton industry and mill workers of the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries.
Founded on the site of Hoyle Bottom Mill, the name holds significant status locally as being one of the earliest constructed mills and was in continuous operation for over 150 years. In its early days, before the dawn of the steam engine, the mill was powered by a magnificent 30ft waterwheel. The water that turned the wheel was none other than Tinker Brook.
Hoyle Bottom Spirits Ltd have chosen to bring this legacy back to life by not only naming a gin after Tinker Brook, but also by using the water in the crafting of the gin itself.
We use 12 botanicals in our gin, stage macerated and vapour-infused to create a true journey of taste.
Immediate citrus notes lead to a warming spice of cassia and cubeb, rounded off with a floral sweetness like no other thanks to the use of heather, which grows in abundance around the distillery.
Hoyle Bottom Spirits are immensely proud to announce that both Tinker Brook Lancashire Dry Gin and A Drop of Pearfection pear drop gin liqueur have been awarded Silver Medals in the International Wine and Spirits Competition 2020.
