How to Make Your Own Gin

How is it possible that Ian Hart ever did anything but create his own gin, in his own home, from a still he built himself?  He was a born inventor. As a child he was the mad scientist on the street – tinkering with one of those chemistry sets that would be illegal now because of the toxic chemicals it contained.  Even his neighbors were slightly fearful that one day they would have no house left…

Ian Hart and his partner, both in work and life, Hilary Whitney, pursued other interests before realising that Sacred Gin was growing from not just another science project, but to one of the most successful new gins on the market.  Ten years on, the market may be a bit more crowded, but Sacred reigns supreme, receiving the ultimate compliment of being chosen by Alessandro Palazzi, as the gin of choice for Dukes Bar’s classic martini.
