Our Artisan Partners
Faith and Sons
Distiller Filipe Souza made a leap of faith with his raison d’être,
wife Maria & daughter Madalena to move from Portugal to England and
set about fulfilling his ambition. With mixology flair, Latin passion,
wild creativity and perfectionism he has created his widely respected
micro distillery Faith & Sons in Manchester.
Arguably his raison d’être is to handcraft the most delectable spirits for us and leading retailers such as Selfridges, Marks & Spencers and local leading experts Reserve Wines. With his light hidden amongst the stills and bottles, we are delighted to work with Faith & Sons as exclusive event partners and developers of NEW liqueurs to shine a light on his talent.
Odourless, flavourless, potent and super smooth High Proof O’Donnell Moonshine is the real deal. This Manchester based business has recreated the elicit alcohol experience as would have been smuggled into the Chicago speakeasies by leading Irish American gangster, O’Donnell.
In the time of prohibition farmers took to their barns to create spirits under the light of moonshine using grains, potatoes or other veg disguising it in jam and honey mason jars as the authorities were on the look out for large bottle purchases. Also blended into delicious liqueurs, this moonshine collection is super drink-easy.
Salford Rum is steeped in history, harking back to the heyday of the 1800s when ships would unload their Caribbean spices, fruit and rum onto the Salford Docks.
Two Salford lads, our Tommy & James bring you hand crafted, original golden spiced rum, copper column distilled in the shadows of the docks. Recent addition, dark spiced rum features a matured blend of rums from Barbados. Highly collectable are the distinctive bottles featuring doodle map designs by artist Dave Draws.

Big Hill Distillery
We doff our hat to the pioneering chaps of Big Hill Distillery Dave& Ben, for creating a multi-international-gold-award winning gin‘Spirit of George’ in tribute to mountaineer George Mallory. ‘Because it’s there’ became George Leigh Mallory’s life-affirming retort whenquestioned on his reasons for attempting to conquer the apparentlyunscalable Everest back in 1924.
This hand-crafted gin,deliciously dry with a hint of Himalayan tea, has been created andperfected in Mobberley, Cheshire, the village where George was born andraised. In tribute to an indomitable spirit of adventure and incelebration of a life lived to the full, they invite you to raise aglass to their hero and inspiration.
We curtsy to their English rebellious Rose too.
