Our Story. Distilled
Created by brothers Ed and Charlie Wood, the distillery was born when we combined our love for the land, as 6th generation family farmers, with the desire to diversify and make best use of our home grown products and stone granary barns to craft single estate spirits.
With Ed’s knowledge of the intricate processes involved, he was able to lead on the development and hand building of the distillery in 2017. The first spirits came off still early in 2018.
Winter wheat grown on the farm is milled, mashed and fermented to produce a pure, well-rounded base spirit that retains the subtle notes of the grain when distilled to create Single Estate Wood Bros Vodka and Gin.
From first conception, the ethos of the single estate spirit was vital for the Wood Brothers, ensuring absolute control of the whole process from field to bottle.
At Wood Brothers, the farm is at the heart of how we produce our spirits.
We understand the land on which we have looked after for generations. We nurture it and in return we are able to reap what we sow. The distillery itself is nestled into a corner of the 1000 acres of land from which we operate. We use this land to grow our winter wheat, barley and rye which form the basis of our vodka, gin and soon will our whiskey.
Once harvested these humble wonders are processed in the milling shed to then be used in the distilling process to produce our award winning spirits .
