It’s not every day a Chartered Quantity Surveyor throws in the towel to try his hand at making gin, but it was certainly worth the risk. Fast forward 6 years, and it was certainly worth the risk. But when Rupert Holloway ditched his job, sold his car and spent his days hunched over a teeny copper pot still in his kitchen, he could have been mistaken for a mad man. Thank goodness it all came good. It’s been a very silly, but wonderful, journey that has led to Conker Spirit. They now produce not only the original Dorset Dry, but have branched out to produce 3 further products. Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur, Port Barrel Gin and Navy Strength have now all been released. Conker Spirit is made in Dorset.
