Silent Pool is an award-winning gin, boasting a rich and clean juniper-driven spirit with floral layers of lavender and chamomile, notes of citrus and kaffir lime, enhanced by local honey for a wonderfully smooth finish. Produced using a unique four-stage process, the botanicals are carefully selected and then split into three groups, each treated separately before combining in a unique distillation to obtain optimum flavour.

Alcoholic spirits originally found their place as a “cure all’ in medieval Europe. Gin was the next step, incorporating the medical benefits held in plants. Various botanical elements were thought to have different health giving properties most notably in the case of gin, juniper. When mixed with spiritus alcohol a rudimentary medicine was formed and became popular all over the continent.
Silent Pool Distillers.
ABOUT THE DISTILLERY
On the Duke of Northumberland’s Albury Estate, a group of dilapidated farm buildings on the banks of the legendary Silent Pool has been transformed to become the home of the Silent Pool Distillers. In keeping with the original vision for a sustainable business, a vintage wood-fired steam boiler was restored to power the hand-built copper still, created for Silent Pool Distillers by the Arnold Holstein Company in the Lake Constance area of Germany. The distillery was completed in 2015 with the arrival of the bespoke stainless steel tanking, sourced from the Vipara Valley in Slovenia, tanking designed to hold both the spirit and the crystal clear water used to make delicious spirits.
