Louth-based Bottomley Distillers has moved into a new and improved distillery which is around fourteen times the size of their previous space.
Still based in Louth, the premise move comes months after the family-run business had announced that they had merged with Next Frontier Brands last September.
Co-Founder, Amy Conyard, said it was “very surreal getting the keys for the new distillery site, just over 2 years since we got the keys for the last one!
“It’s been an incredible journey so far and we are so excited to share this next part of our story with you, every step of the way.”
During the last lockdown, the business produced nearly 15,000 litres of hand sanitiser to support NHS services and essential workers during the pandemic.
In early 2020 Bottomley Distillers also partnered with St. Barnabas Hospice to raise funds for the organisation with the creation and sale of their “Est. 1982” label gin.
Co-Founder Alan Bottomley said:
“It’s a massive step forward for the distillery, the new site will house our 5,000 litre still which can be viewed directly from the visitors centre.”
“We will continue to operate sustainably and ethically, whilst creating employment to develop and grow our staff.”
Dean Draper, Next Frontier Brands’ Managing Director of UK & EU said: “Bottomley Distillery is central to our regional and global success.
“It is a pleasure to work with such a distinguished and capable distillery team. We look forward to what the future holds.”
