“Our story began in the city of Rezekne, Latvia, where our founding brothers’ Great-Grandparents began distilling from grain. The two brothers, Vitalijs and Alex, grew up watching their grandparents growing grain and using secret family recipes passed down from generation to generation to produce fine spirits.
In 1998, they moved to the heart of the country in Stoke-on-Trent and were inspired by the city and its rich cultural heritage. Made up of six neighbouring towns and renowned as the ‘World capital of ceramics’, the area’s reputation for high craftmanship appealed to their sense of perfection.”
“It was here that Vitalijs and Alex turned to their own heritage and began selling state-of-the-art Genio distillery equipment. Having served well over 100 distilleries across the country and armed with their extensive experience and industry knowledge, they combined their mutual love for crafting spirits with their family’s secret recipes and set out on a mission to create an artisan gin that encapsulated the refined craftmanship of Stoke-on-Trent… and Sixtowns Gin was born.”

I have to admit it was the bottle that made me purchase the Sixtowns gin, as it is made out of ceramic and is reminiscent of a Kiln which is a shoutout to the town where it is made’s history, Stoke on Trent. Being one of the six towns in the Staffordshire borough and with a long history of pottery it seems very fitting to have their gin presented in a kiln. So what is the gin like? Well simply put it’s delicious. A great juniper forward gin with a citrus twist and very very delicious. I have used it in the classic Gin & Tonics and I have used it in cocktails. It’s a gem of a gin and you can’t go wrong. The price is the same as many a premium gin and given the bottle it comes in, I’d say it’s worth it. These bottles are amazing for recycling into lamps, vases and well just to be reused as ornaments. I hope you try this one as you won’t be disappointed.
