From Henstone Distillery:

Henstone Distilleries was established in Oswestry, Shropshire, United Kingdom in 2017 by Chris and Alexandra Toller, and Shane and Alison Parr. Shane and Alison also run an established brewery (Stonehouse Brewery) and the distillery is based at the brewery site. The four partners spent several years planning their venture and following the support of a grant installed an impressive 1000 litre still, affectionately named Hilda, manufactured by Kothe in Germany.
Our aim is to create the best quality products for people who, like us, enjoy sophisticated, classic spirits, but with a small batch twist. We believe our new branding reflects this.

As partners we’re all passionate about the high calibre spirits that we’re producing and are looking forward to utilising Hilda’s talents further to create even more fabulous drinks in the future.

Finally, the name Henstone originates from the family homes of the co-founders. Chris and Alex live in an ex-public house  called “The Hen and Chickens”, whilst Shane and Alison live in “Stonehouse”.
