Grins Cheshire Gin

The fabulous Hammonds home county Cheshire Gin, made using botanicals from the Cheshire countryside and spring water from the Peckforton Hills. Deliciously smooth and wrapped in an luxurious art deco inspired bottle.

The story behind the name of the gin is loosely based on the Cheshire Cat that grins in Lewis Carrol’s Classic, Alice in Wonderland. Grins is distilled using locally sourced Peckforton Spring Water, Cheshire blueberries, cassia bark, lemon peel, nutmeg, cinnamon, sweet orange peel, cucumber and of course, juniper.

Grins is a very smooth gin with a perfect blend of citrus and spice, hints of cucumber and blueberries, which culminates in a well balanced flavour.

The makers recommend serving Grins with a slice of orange, a slice of lime and some fresh blueberries.
