Who we are:
We are Batch Brew Ltd, a micro-distillery based in Burnley, Lancashire. As a family-based team of dedicated perfectionists our first professional venture into the realms of the drinks industry was with beer, but as our journey progressed and matured we discovered a new purpose and now revel in the crafting of premium spirits. As an established micro-distillery we are proud of our roots and are a local employer. Our shareholders all have a passion for travel, including one who is permanently based in Okinawa, Japan. We have taken our collective experience and passion for varied flavours and brought it back home to the North-West where we can first share this Arabic influenced gin with our friends in the North but gradually expand to cover the whole of the UK. Since our launch in December 2014 Batch has already gained regional and international recognition, receiving plaudits from such esteemed establishments as Hammonds of Knutsford, and the awarding of a Silver Medal at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Batch: a premium product
Lovingly crafted, our Premium Gin is produced in small batches. We don’t ask anyone else to distill it for us and we source everything (locally where possible) from the bottles to the botanicals.
We chose Burnley as our base because the shareholders are from the North-West and we were able to employ family members keen to help with the production. Thanks to grant funding and assistance from Burnley Council we were able to set-up our new distillery where we can focus on making a quality, hand produced product in small enough volumes that we ensure each bottle finished to our high standards.
Where it all started
Not surprisingly our journey started in Spain, with its massively influential culture of seemingly countless bars dedicated to each gin’s perfect serve, of copa-glasses and vast selections of gins – each offering a distinctive take on the flavours and aromas of individual garnishes. Amazed by the range – from fresh pomegranate to sprigs of rosemary the Spanish flair for creativity inspired us to roll up our sleeves and get to work on creating our very own gin: Batch.
Batch’s future plans
To grow as we have begun: Organically. A core aspect of our philosophy is to keep ourselves very much rooted in the ‘who’ and ‘what’ of our original definition as a locally-based craft-gin distillery, with the goal of establishing the North West as a major hub for handcrafted gins that are recognised regionally, nationally and beyond.
