Gin Tasting: An Evening with Will Lowe of The Cambridge Distillery
William Lowe, AIWS, Master Distiller
Co-founder of the Cambridge Distillery, with a career in the drinks industry which spans 20 years. Will is a Wine and Spirit Educator to professionals in the industry, was awarded the title of International Wine and Spirits Championship Associate Judge of the Year, and is the winner of highly coveted Wines from Spain scholarship for the Master of Wine qualification. As well as featuring on judging panels for wines and spirits, he writes for various trade publications and websites as a wine, spirits and cocktail expert. William has recently been appointed as the Diploma Spirits Educator at the WSET, the world’s leading wine and spirits education centre.
The Cambridge Distillery was founded when owners William and Lucy Lowe were walking their much-loved labrador, Darcy, in the fields surrounding their home in Cambridge – and decided to establish their own gin distillery, led by innovation and the pursuit of excellence.
From the outset, the Cambridge Distillery has always taken a different approach to the production of this historic spirit. Inspired by their semi-rural location, they create gins using fresh, locally-available botanicals, rather than simply following the same recipes as everybody else. By distilling each element individually, they are able to reach previously unattainable levels of quality.
They are also the world’s first gin tailors: they capture pure botanical distillates for blending to the individual specifications of each of their customers. Once you have determined your own precise recipe, they store it under your own file, ready to produce more for you whenever you – and only you – order it.
