Paper mill distillery is an assorted group of people, with different lives who just happen to make gin.

our story

The need to craft gin came from our love of all things gin, however we never started out to be a distillery! 

We started life in 2002 mainly due to our love of beer. Over the years our company grew and so we relocated to the site of a former 18th century Paper Mill.  Naturally more staff came on board, and this is where our diversities increased to include a gin loving culture too! Our interest in tasting new gins intermingled with our love of experiencing what the world has to offer, because of this the idea was born to use an array of botancials to craft travel inspired, world flavoured gins. 

Our first port of call is a country visited by some of us and on the bucket list for others; India. We chose India due to the vast number of adventures the country has to offer as well as it’s association with flavours. 

Taking this into account we crafted a gin based on Massala Chai, which is as tantalising as it sounds.

Wherever next?
