MEET THE FAMILY BEHIND THE EXCLUSIVE HANDCRAFTED GIN
Tucked away in a lush floral garden; on a tiny street in Northowram, next to the rolling hills of the Shibden Valley, is Peter Speight’s shed. The shed is the home to the ‘Speight’s Distillery’ which is nestled below a great Horse-Chestnut tree and surrounded by a cornucopia of wild flowers and creeping vines.
The ‘Speight’s Distillery’ is a family run distillery, where an elegant copper pot still produces small batches every day of the flavoursome floral nectar named after the family – sp8 gin.
A FAMILY RUN BUSINESS
This isn’t just by- the-book gin making, it’s a full-on family passion. Peter works alongside his son-in-law Daniel who is his distilling partner and wife Angela to develop the different flavours. Simon (Peter’s son) drives the business and marketing and his daughter Victoria manages the creative aspect.
Anyone who has met the family will tell you how much they care about what they do. A family tradition, producing spirits and beers is in their blood. The Speight family love nature and all it has to offer, which helps produce this fine spirit, encapsulating a summers day in a bottle.
