SPIRITS OF ADVENTURE
SIGNATURE | EXPORT STRENGTH | DISTILLERS CUT
Adjacent to the 45 West Distillery is Burleighs wood, a natural woodland reserve of outstanding beauty. Whilst walking through the woodland master distiller, Jamie Baxter, came across Silver Birch, Dandelion, Burdock, Elderberries and Iris. Enthused by his findings, these botanicals went on to inspire Burleighs unique gin recipe and it seemed only fitting that this ancient Leicestershire woodland would lend its name to our gin.
45 WEST DISTILLERY
A SPIRIT LOVERS WONDERLAND
Our state-of-the-art distillation equipment is housed at Bawdon Lodge Farm, deep in the Leicestershire countryside. A location that depicts the quality and beauty of our Spirits of Adventure.
Our beautiful 450 litre copper pot still nicknamed, Messy Bessy, was custom made by Arnold Holstein of Markdorff, Germany. The design of the still, the careful sourcing of ingredients and the great skill of the distiller, all contribute to the smooth nature of our spirits.
