THE STORY

PISTON GIN: BUILT BY HAND

What does it mean to build something? A house; a business; a gin?

PISTON Distillery was founded in 2018 by Nick Weatherall, by trade a builder, who became so fascinated by the story of gin that he was compelled to create his own.

And so he started by building a distillery, in part of the shell of the old Royal Worcester porcelain works. Nick and his team have brought new life to this abandoned and near-derelict historic site – today the Piston Distillery is vibrant and busy with the sounds and smells of twenty-first century, hand-crafted industry as our signature Piston Gin is built, botanical by botanical.

I’m really impressed. This Piston fires on all cylinders – a very impressive debut from an exciting new distillery.
