Meet Gilly

Meet Gilly

It may be Brogan’s Way but there another lady that plays an equally important role in our gins and how they come to be.

Meet Gilly, our one-of-a-kind copper pot still.

One thing we discovered our favourite gins had in common was that they had all come from still made by Carl GmbH in Germany, one of the most respected and reputable still manufacturers in the world.

When we met with Carl GmbH, they noticed that Brogan was not as tall as most distillers and made a still especially for her – one slightly shorter and a little easier to reach. They were completely open to our discussions on how Brogan’s science background influences her as a distiller and incorporated something special into the design of our still, something that allowed her to modify the still setup to extract the exact flavour she wants. We ended up with our Gilly – it both looks and works in a stunningly beautiful way.

Gin distilling has a custom of giving stills female names, an affectionate tradition followed over the centuries by distillers all around the world.

Gilly is named after Brogan‘s mother, a gin lover and insperation behind the scenes and it was most appropriate that the first time Brogan used her new still was on Mother’s Day 2018.
