A Truly Unique Partnership

Nelson's Gin team

Neil Harrison

Master Distiller

Nelson’s Gin was created by one man – Neil Harrison. In a world wherein craft gins proliferate, Neil was certain that he had both the vision and the palate to create a distinct and exceptional gin.

With a Masters in Culinary Arts and having worked extensively in a 2 Michelin star restaurant, Neil knew that a pleasing and memorable tasting experience depends on the combination of many factors – from an inspired balance of flavours to presentation, context, and the all-too-elusive creation of ambience; the vital ingredient which owes more to alchemy than any kind of practicality. Neil combined his years of expertise and refined palate from the food industry to develop an exclusive range of award-winning gins.

Nelson’s Gin is made in small batches, to be enjoyed by those who appreciate its life-affirming qualities. It is the only gin made with the influence of a sophisticated 21st-century version of a ‘cottage industry’ along the borders of Derbyshire and Staffordshire. With Neil’s creativity and dedication, Nelson’s Distillery has yet again produced award-winning Rum and Vodka, delivering exceptional quality and unique flavours not found anywhere else in the world.

As a connoisseur of an amazing gin, he started his own Gin and Vodka School. He wanted to share his knowledge and let others experience the joy of creating their own personal Gin whilst gaining an education in the history and the fine art of Gin-making.

Nelson’s Gin and Vodka school has won many tourism awards since its establishment; and by 2020, it is ready to embark on a global roll-out in major cities across the world.
