Wessex Spirits

Wessex Spirits started life in February 2017 as Test Valley Gin. The brainchild of Kate Griffin, it began in a garden annexe at her Grandads house! Kate wanted to make something a little bit different using fresh, natural flavours from locally sourced produce. As a former Secondary English teacher, she freely admits that she had been very skilled at drinking gin! Inspired by her mum’s sloe gin she took the leap into making her own product.

Wessex Spirits has grown rapidly and have now moved to their own premises in Andover, Hampshire. Therein lies production, a shop and a tasting room. They now have several brands of gin and a new rum. Kate is still proud to use natural, locally sourced ingredients and completely handcraft the products from design, infusions, filling and hand labelling. Every bottle is unique.

Products include Test Valley Gin, Summer Solstice, Winter Solstice, Spire Gin and Resting Place Rum.
