The Hepple story started in one of England’s last wild sanctuaries, in the remote moors of Northumberland, the whipping winds amongst the age of Juniper bushes at Hepple, and the pursuit of a gin to make the perfect dry martini. The only way to capture the wild heart of this juniper was to completely rethink how the gin was made, thus the Triple Technique was born. The Triple Technique is comprised of a copper pot still, glass vacuum still, and a super critical extraction.
This single botanical spirit draws its ﬂavour from just one ingredient: the needles of the Douglas Fir. We harvest the needles in early summer. By meticulously applying our high ﬁdelity distilling system; The Triple Technique, we deliver the true taste of this tall giant of the Hepple woods. A surprising explosion of refreshing pine and sweet ripe melon, with undertones of grapefruit zest. A spirit of exceptional freshness and purity.
