More About Downton Abbey Spirits
Produced by the small British Harrogate Tipple craft distillery in Yorkshire, England, this brand new range of spirits has been hand distilled by Tom Nichol and his team on the estate grounds of the 750-year old Ripley Castle. Mr Tom Nichol is the Master Distiller, a lifetime award recipient from The Gin Guild and the brains behind the making of Tanqueray No10.

With botanicals selected to represent the Post-Edwardian era of the world famous fictional show ‘Downton Abbey’, these premium drinks are a taste of the aristocratic hospitality that has made the show a global hit since it was first seen on screens in 2011.  These are the only official Downton Abbey liquor products.

These high quality small batch liquors are hand-bottled in identical ‘Lord and Lady’ bottles, the gin and whisky both come in high quality, heavy British glass bottles. The square-shouldered bottle profile echoes design cues of the Downton Abbey era. The stunning new pink english rhubarb gin, offered in the same handsome clear bottle will arrive in the us market early in 2020.

The luxurious embossed label and watch strap design echoes the imagery of the world famous show, supported by exclusive access to TV show and movie assets and images for promotion and Point of sale as the only Official Downton Abbey Liquors. A stunning taste of this uniquely British TV and Movie phenomenon…

    The presentation was great; the participants were very knowledgeable and entertaining. Unfortunately, I was not keen on the product. I found it a little tasteless and plastic.
