HELLO!

Welcome to our distillery in the heart of England’s PEAK DISTRICT National Park. The distillery sits in the beautiful HOPE VALLEY, overlooked by MAM TOR, the majestic peak known locally as the SHIVERING MOUNTAIN. Named because of the elemental erosion and geological movement that’s echoed through the surrounding valleys and villages for millennia.

We’ve harnessed our landscapes immense forces, the micro climate, fresh spring waters and natural botanicals to create a range of gins with a totally unique character, nose and finish. We call this GINOLOGY. Our aim is simple, to capture the beauty and spirit of the Peak District in a bottle.

We hope, like us, you are moved by our wonderful GINS.

Our Gins will be available JANUARY 2021

OUR GINS

Shivering Mountain Premium Dry Gin

Our Premium Dry Gin has the profile of a London Dry Gin with juniper and citrus flavours enhanced with fruity notes from sloes and bilberries. These are combined with the lighter, sweeter, floral tones from gorse and heather to give a very smooth, warm and rich gin with a long but slightly spicy finish.

Shivering Mountain Premium Pink Gin

Our Premium Pink Gin is the epitome of purity and craft. Instead of adding sweetener we’ve crafted the perfect balance of real grapefruit and citrus juiceswith our dry gin base. The result is a deliciously refreshing, lightly aromatic gin with a smooth, crisp citrus finish.

Botanical & Elements

Our gins use the bounty of our wild and rugged landscape. We combine the traditional dry gin flavours of juniper and coriander, angelica and cardamom with the richness of sloe berries found growing in the valleys. We add warmth using bilberries found flourishing low to the ground on the high moorland as they escape the harsh weather. We round this off with a honeyed sweetness from moorland heather and gorse that adorn the slopes around our distillery.

HAND SOURCED & HAND-CRAFTED

Creating a premium gin takes real commitment, time, energy, experimentation and craft. Our ultimate goal is to deliver exceptional gins that capture the essence, authenticity and spirit of the Peak District in a bottle.

ONLY THE PUREST BOTANICALS

We’ve used the best classic gin botanicals and mixed them with local fruits and flowers to create our unique twist on the classic London Dry Gin.

OUR BASE SPIRIT

For our gin base we’ve searched for the highest quality, UK-grown, grain-based alcohol for our still.

FRESH SPRING WATER

The water we use comes directly from a natural spring that leaves the hillsides just behind our distillery. This water filters through layers of ancient rock, sand and shale, it is then triple filtered for purity. As it journeys through the landscape it takes on a slight sparkle that translates to a smooth, refreshing gin, which has a distinctive finish and palate sensation.

Our story

This is a story of a group of friends that came together with a shared vision of creating a distillery in a place that they loved. Tamsin, Nick, Sophie, Josie, Tilly, Jan, John, Harmony and Graham have all contributed to the creation of Shivering Mountain. The Pennine Mountains grow out of the Peak District in one of the most beautiful regions in the UK. To live and work with friends on the mountains and down in the valleys surrounded by such a rich history makes Shivering Mountain a special place to be and has helped us create our authentic gins.

OUR DISTILLERY

The Shivering Mountain Distillery sits on a hillside overlooking Hathersage. Lush rhododendron bushes fill our grounds and mark a footpath previously used by Charlotte Brontë as she walked from Highlow Hall down to the Parish Church. The hall became one of Brontë’s inspirations for Thornfield Hall in the classic novel, Jane Eyre.

OUR STILL

The distillery itself houses Little John, a hand-crafted copper Holstein still. Its name is inspired by Robin Hood’s lieutenant, who is believed to lie buried in Hathersage Parish Church graveyard.

GINS CRAFTED BY LOCAL PEOPLE

Shivering Mountain Gin is a community enterprise. We employ local experts, suppliers, and use local botanicals and ingredients wherever possible to create a truly authentic Peak District gin experience.

We’re into quality not volume. Our focus is on highly crafted premium gins. We run small batches so we can perfect the taste and consistency. Every batch is hand-crafted by our expert and passionate team.

MEMORABLE EXPERIENCES

We’re very excited to be on this amazing journey. As our distillery evolves we’re looking forwards to offering Ginology experiences for local people and for visitors from far an wide. Our aim is to leave a lasting impression that captures the beauty, tastes and hospitality of the Peak District and it’s warm hearted and welcoming people.
