Their flagship product, which was released in June 2018, Copperfield London Dry Gin is distilled and bottled at The Surrey Copper Distillery in Cranleigh.
Its blend of botanicals is inspired by historical recipes discovered in library archives and includes juniper berries, orris root, angelica, liquorice, coriander, caraway, lemon peel, cardamom, cubeb berries and elderflower.
Chris and Katherine are avid collectors of rare and old books, and the Copperfield name is inspired by Dickens’ classic novel.
Chimes English Extra Dry Vermouth, meanwhile, uses carefully selected English wine blended with a gently distilled spirit vapour infusion made from twelve botanicals.
First released in October 2018, it is named after Charles Dickens’ The Chimes: A Goblin Story of Some Bells that Rang an Old Year Out and a New Year In. Further ‘editions’ are planned in due course.
As well as being available from their online shop and John Lewis, The Surrey Copper Distillery’s spirits can be bought at Kingfisher Farm Shop, Taurus Wines and Surrey Hills Beer & Gin Company, among others, in Surrey.
