The Old Curiosity, was founded by Hamish and wife Liberty, Hamish, a wine merchant, began to pursue his lifelong passion for plants by gaining a Herbology Diploma. Alongside Liberty’s passion for all things vintage the overgrown lowlands became an award-winning herb nursery, local arts centre, shop and café - The Secret Herb Garden -.
With over 30 years experience in the drinks trade and a passion for creating unique tipples from glorious natural ingredients, Hamish began experimenting. Beginning with Apothecary Rose, an ancient ingredient in tinctures and tonics, he discovered a natural reaction that can only be explained by the magic of nature: a natural colour change, the magical beginning of Secret Garden Gin.
Over time Hamish developed many more concoctions of fine gin and hand-grown herbs, then took to exploring a barn full of curious things, the Old Curiosity Distillery was founded in 2017.
