This gin was created out of a collaboration between the Imagination Distillery and Black Barn winery. The gin has been made using Imagination's triple distilled dry gin which has been aged in lightly toasted French oak barriques which were used in the production of our Black Barn's Syrah wine.

Simon Wilson and Chris Charteris don’t just make gin- they make REAL gin. The yeast they use in their fermentation, combined with a delicate balance of botanicals, makes a gin where the juniper hits your senses and makes you dream of the finer things in life. After 2 years of experimenting, scheming and drinking their way through the creative process, the pair are now serving up taste explosions to surprise even the most discerning gin drinkers.

Mixing traditional gin distillation with only the freshest fruity ingredients, the pair are obsessed with using local flavours, and producers they know by name. They carefully hand-select everything from farm to bottle to get that “real gin taste” every time. Their dedication to the process means Imagination Gin is not just “a strong drink in a fancy bottle”- it is a showcase of everything a modern hand-crafted spirit should be.
