Durham Gin is a small-batch craft distillery located on the outskirts of Durham City. They produce genuine, hand-made gin made with traditional methods and only best quality ingredients. Production is still old-fashioned from the 400-litre copper pot and small batches of a few hundred bottles at a time to the hand-made labels.
Despite its compactness, Durham offers a wide range of shopping options amongst the intimate lanes and atmospheric narrow streets, much of which is closed to traffic making for a pleasant and relaxed experience. Its Victorian Market, monthly Farmer’s Market add additional colour and life on selected days throughout the week while The Prince Bishop’s Centre and Gates’ Centre offer all the high street and designer brands one could wish for. Unique to the city is the Fowler’s Yards, where artists and craftspeople create and sell their specialities such as glass, metal and textile work. There is even a micro brewery.
