Elsham Wold Distillery
Same root, different directions.
It’s taken 8 years of passion, commitment and hard work to bring their vision of soil to spirit to life, and they are proud to be firmly planted at Elsham Wold Distillery, located just a few miles from where their spirit’s main ingredient was first cultivated.
Their team members have been working separately on the creation of a new, premium spirit since 2013 but it wasn’t until three families’ paths crossed in 2018 that the Elsham Wold Distillery became a reality. Since day one, the key to success had been finding the perfect blend, but they hadn’t realised that the blend of people was just as important as the perfect spirit recipe.
Together, they truly believed that locally-produced spirits from natural, raw ingredients could transcend the popular craft market and conquer the premium spirits industry. They set out to prove that quality produce, originating from their own farms across Lincolnshire, could create a premium single-estate potato vodka, from a simple ingredient on our doorstep that they already knew so well. This hands-on, sustainable approach to their spirit has been an important part of their journey, and one that can be tasted in every bottle.

"Our beating heart." Proud of their craft, they make 100% of their alcohol from raw ingredients and control the whole process themselves. The distillery is an integral part of this, giving them both the ability and artistic license to create a base spirit that is completely their own.
Their single-variety premium English potato vodka has secured four internationally-recognised awards since its launch earlier this year. The multiple-award winning Edwards 1902 outscored some established vodka brands during the blind taste tests, indicating important industry support in its debut year.
Securing a Silver Spirit award in the prestigious International Wine and Spirit Competition, Edwards 1902 scored an impressive 92 out of a possible 100 in the double-blind taste test. The carefully selected, expert panel of judges described their first spirit as “a sweet, clean and cooling spirit with mineral notes and an earthy depth”.
