Conker Spirit is Dorset’s first gin distillery. Nestle in the sandy backstreets of Bournemouth, Conker Spirit quietly distil their award winning Dorset Dry gin in tiny 60 bottle batches. Conker Spirit are the real deal; they are the distillers, the bottlers, labellers and even the botanical foragers, hand pic king New Forest gorse flowers destined for their copper pot still. Conker Spirit is the brainchild and labour of love for founder Rupert Holloway, who up until a year ago you would have found donning a hard hat and hi vis jacket in his previous career as a Chartered Surveyor. Holloway’s plan was for Conker Spirit to do everything themselves, the right way, with a focus on quality without the shortcuts. The Dorset Dry is a classic gin that’s true to juniper. The subtle incorporation of the Dorset notes of marsh samphire, elderberries and handpicked New Forest gorse, brings bright and refreshing lighter notes to Conker. This all means you will be surprised to find yourself happily sipping Conker straight over ice, giving you sweet, sour, bitter and dry all in one delicious package, taking you on a fantastic journey. Mix at your leisure, but this gin can definitely hold its own. That’s the Spirit.
