Spitfire Heritage. Inspired by the story of the Lesotho Spitfires, Ian and David committed to pay tribute to and offer thanks on behalf of the rank and file of the British people to the people of Lesotho for their support. A rare example of international aid not being a one way street.
So the SPITFIRE HERITAGE TRUST was born….it’s mantra being that the Spitfire is much more than a vintage aircraft. It is a Great British icon that symbolises the coming together of all the nations of the Commonwealth, as we stood together in defence of our common human values and freedoms.
Spitfire Heritage enlisted the talents of multi award winning Master Distiller Dr John Walters. And with that John worked his alchemy to create a 1930’s retro gin of exceptional quality. In the spirit of the Spitfire created to be the best. Distilled in the heart of Blighty in hand beaten copper stills. Housed in a stunning 300 year old barn next to a duck pond. It doesn’t get more British than that! The distillery is one of only a handful of Single Estate Distilleries in England.
