Meet Craig and Rory, your new award-winning gin guys from the fine city of Norwich

  • It’s not often we get to work with exciting new producers from Norwich, just around the corner from Naked HQ. So when we got an email from a couple of guys called Craig and Rory, who said they’d been making award-winning gins in the fine city since 2019, we thought someone might have been pulling our leg. But after getting to meet them and taste their gins, we realised this was one of those rare instances where it wasn’t just too good, it was also very true.

  • The two met while working at another popular local distillery and had also worked together at a local Norwich gin bar. In 2019, that gin bar closed, so they decided to strike out on their own by snapping up the site and transforming it into a brand new cocktail bar - called Gyre & Gimble - where they started making their very own gin, distilled on-site, to be served at the bar.

  • The guys still make all their gins on-site and even though they’ve only been going a few years, they’ve already won big awards from the likes of the IWSC and the World Gin Awards. But they know they can achieve even more. Which is why they were so keen to join up with us. The extra support from Angels and having a local Norwich partnership means less hours on the road for the guys and more time they can focus on making their incredible gins. We’re absolutely chuffed to have them on board too.
