From Three Wrens:
Our master distiller and owner, Nick, has spent 20 years in the drinks & spirits industry. His career started in Manchester where he was award winning mixologist, running high end bars and competing in cocktail competitions all over the world. Nick then became a cocktail bar owner, and more recently held the position of brand manager for a global, award-winning gin.
Nick has harboured a long standing ambition to create his own brand of gin for most of his working life and finally took the plunge to open the Three Wrens distillery in August 2019. The gins are inspired by the beautiful village of Wrenbury, where his family of three reside. Hence the name ‘Three Wrens Gin’
Wrenbury is famous for its fields of Wrens, and can trace its history back to 1100 AD. Our distillery is based in the adjacent village of Cholmondeley, opposite a stunning castle, famous for its amazing gardens.
We are incredibly lucky to be surrounded by outstanding countryside. Ancient woodlands with up to 50 edible plant varieties of roots, shrubs and flowers, are all within a few minutes walk. We are able to grow our own herbs and flowers to use in the gins we make, and we pick them from literally right outside our doors.
Nick’s background in mixology and gin, enabled him to successfully turn his hand to distillation. Much of the skill set needed has been acquired over time with his experience of carefully pairing flavours together to create inventive cocktail menus. After an intensive period of study, distillers courses, trial distillations and exams, Nick made the first batch of Three Wrens in June 2019, and knew he had made something truly special.
