The Definition of a Craft Spirit
We have the privilege or working with an old copper kettle, on the Sir Robert Stanford Estate, which has over 100 years of history behind it. We have lovingly restored the distillery and use the copper kettle to produce our Husk Spirit range. Along with the old, we are also using a modern stainless steel still, which allows tourists to witness the difference between the modern and old processes.
We have natural product aged in oak barrels, distilled in small batches, no more than 800L in a batch.
We welcome you to come and experience the charm of Stanford, the history of the estate and the varied flavours of our products.
View our range of Husk Spirit (Grappa) and Witblits products with a variety of flavours.
