A brand new venture is starting up at the heart of Aycliffe, thanks to a letting secured by Connect Property North East. The newly formed Herbal Gin Company will occupy a 3,600 sq ft building on Northfield Way.
A recently retired GP at Pease Way Surgery Dr Colin Scott has followe his passion for gin making with business partner Wayne Richardson’s fascination with herbal remedies. Together they will use this to fuel their passion and vision to create a series of beautiful and uniquely flavoured gins.
Dr Scott commented “our Gins will focus on original combinations of botanicals and herbs, some of which have been attributed with medicinal properties in days gone by, along with some botanicals from across the globe which have never been used in Gins before. Hence the name of the brand and company” – “The Herbal Gin Company”. This exciting new distillery will be set up within Aycliffe Business Park, delivering its wares by means of a unique “Aviation themed” gin bar. The venue will eventually provide a “gin experience” for enthusiasts, allowing individuals and groups throughout the UK to enjoy creating their own gin blends which they can take home to enjoy later. Even now, there have been expressions of interest from as far afield as Scotland and Ireland, established local businesses and a client as far afield as Dorset”
