CASTLE GATE GIN

An infusion of acorns and passion

Weavers is the home to Castle Gate Gin. The adventure started with Mary, who is one half of the 5th generation to own and run wine and spirit merchants, Weavers of Nottingham in the centre of Nottingham’s high street where this spirit of Nottingham was born. Inspired by Nottinghamshire's very own Sherwood Forest, this award-winning Castle Gate Gin really is a taste of home.

This is the first of our unique gins inspired by Sherwood Forest. Through the use of acorns, the gin shows a slight nuttiness and makes for a brilliant classic G&T.
Castle Gate Pink Strawberry & Lavender

Castle Gate Pink Strawberry & Lavender

This fruit driven gin was inspired by the family's nostalgia of strawberry picking as children. This marriage with light touches of lavender is a winning combination, especially on a hot summers day!

Foraging

Foraging

All good gins starts with a good forage! Mary and family love foraging for these little beauties which are then dried, peeled and ground before being added to the copper pot still for distillation.
