Raisthorpe Invests in Wolds Based Distillery

Artisan drinks producer Raisthorpe Distillery are investing in their production facilities with the installation of a new still at its base on the Yorkshire Wolds.

The new still is being used to blend natural botanicals and local water to produce Raisthorpe’s range of award-winning gin liqueurs, vodkas and dry gin alongside one of the company’s newest products, Yorkshire Tonic which is also produced at their Thixendale site.

Family run company Raisthorpe, who celebrated their 10th year in business last year is run by Julia Medforth and her son Oliver who oversee the day to day production and sale of its drinks range to independent retailers, farm shops and delis across the country.

Julia said: “Installing the new still represents a major investment for us at a time when our business has achieved successful growth and continues to aim high. We take great pride in our products and always look to innovate and create new ones that will appeal to consumers as the artisan drinks market continues to grow.”

Raisthorpe recently took home accolades at this year’s Great Taste Awards with the company awarded 2-stars both Rose and Sloe Gins and Pink Grapefuit Tonic and 1-star for their Raspberry Gin Liqueur.
