Medlock FRB is starting on site today at 52-54 Castle Street in Liverpool, converting 7,800 sq ft into a gin distillery on behalf of Halewood Wines & Spirits.
The city centre distillery is being opened by Halewood for its Liverpool Gin brand and will include with two bars; a premium gin and spirits bar on the ground floor and a premium dark spirits bar at basement level, alongside a specially designed Gin Lab where visitors can make the spirit themselves and attend a Bartender School. Guests will also be able to see Liverpool Gin being made in a 600-litre working copper still.
The unit in the grade two-listed building was designed by Warrington architect DV8 Designs.
The word is due to be finished in time for a November launch.
Emily Kelly, general manager at Liverpool Gin Distillery, said: “Liverpool Gin is much loved throughout the city and we’ve had amazing feedback since the announcement of the new distillery; there is a real buzz in the air about the redevelopment and all it will have to offer.
“Innovating and developing the Liverpool Gin range will be a big part of what we’re doing at the distillery so watch this space for more exciting new flavours and limited-edition gins.”
The landlord at 52-54 Castle Street is Cityscape.
Based in Huyton, Halewood’s stable of drinks brands includes Crabbies, Lambrini, Red Square and Pogues Irish Whiskey.
