Hussingtree Gin.  Inspired in Worcestershire.

Our aim is to create distinctive premium distilled gin, inspired by the array of wonderful produce available in our home county of Worcestershire.

Hussingtree Gin is owned and run by three gin loving family members – husband and wife Richard and Elaine, and Duncan, Elaine’s son.

Our brand takes its name from the village where Elaine and Richard live – Martin Hussingtree, just north of Worcester.  The name reflects both our heritage and one of our core values – the importance of ‘local’.

From the Hussingtree name comes the ‘H’ within the stylised roundel, which is an important part of our visual branding.

Our first distilled gin is Hussingtree Juneberry Gin which is launching in July 2018, shortly followed by our distilled plum gin that will be launched in August at the Pershore Plum Festival.  Our range of gins will continue to evolve as we move through the seasons of the year.

You can find out more about us on our website and we’ll post plenty of updates about our journey on facebook and instagram.
