In the Cheshire countryside, Nick Wadeson founded the independent distillery three years ago from small woodland premises. It now operates from a large distillery and gin school. On the edge of the Combermere Estate, Three Wrens now craft hand-distilled, home-grown gins opposite Cholmondeley castle, where they originally started. With a background in mixology, Nick soon began exploringand unique flavours which helped him to create over 10 unique award-winning flavoured gins, including the extremely popular Bison Grass and Apple Crumble flavours.
Exquisite Citrus Gin won this award for 2023 despite being launched less than a year ago. Presented in a stunning translucent yellow bottle, the gin’s expression contains Jara lemon, Italian Bergamot, Kumquat, Pomelo & Shikuwasa. A ‘white lady’ cocktail or Mediterranean Tonic are the best accompaniments.
Nick Wadeson, Founder of Three Wrens commented; “It feels amazing to say we are distillers of the best gin in the country and I am absolutely elated after being invited to attend the grand final in London last night. To even be considered amongst the world’s best is a huge honour. Knowing we came from small beginnings in Cheshire and are now known all over the globe is a feeling like no other. I am so proud of my team – they really are the pride of the region.”
England’s Best Gin award is added to Three Wrens’ fast-expanding trophy cabinet. Only recently has the company taken home prizes including Cheshire’s Drink Producer of the Year and the Golden Fork at the prestigious Great Taste Awards.
