Why do we love Wimbledon Gin?
This delicious Wimbledon Brewery Gin is the winner of a gold Medal at both the International Gin Masters 2020 and the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2021. Don’t let the awards speak for this beverage, though - try it for yourself!

This small batch gin is handcrafted exceptionally with locally inspired Wimbledon ingredients. Wimbledon Brewery Gin combines a finely balanced mix of local botanicals, including Juniper, Gorse and Heather (as found in abundance on Wimbledon Common), Wimbledon Honey, Liquorice, Lemon and Cascade Hops from the brewery. The end result is a smooth, traditionally-flavoured dry gin, with a brewery twist and a delicate citrus top.

As a unique twist, Wimbledon Brewery adds local honey in the distillation process to give hints of floral spice from the nectar that bees have harvested throughout the lush gardens of Wimbledon.

Wimbledon Garden Gin packs a punch with 43% ABV and is presented in a stunning 70cl stoneware bottle, making it the ultimate stylish gift for any gin fan.

Today, Wimbledon Brewery’s Logo incorporates the image of the tower, the phoenix, barley and hops, representing our local heritage and focus on using only the best ingredients. Wimbledon Brewery are custodians of the heritage and traditions of beer brewing, whilst also inspiring the new generation of beer drinkers and budding brewers.
