Did you know that we also now host Rum School at both Hull and Leeds?

It's our birthday!

July 14, 2020

Today we celebrate our second birthday, and we’ve been looking back at a tumultuous year. We’ve gone from the highs of running a weekly sell-out Gin School, to winning a whole raft of prestigious awards, to the thrill of opening a second Gin School in Leeds, to the lows of having to close both venues at the start of lockdown.

Anyone who knows us knows that our business is our everything - we put our all into it and pride ourselves on giving our guests the best experience there is, so the last few months have been heartbreaking for us, like for so many small independents in our sector.

But another thing we pride ourselves on is staying positive and always seeing challenges as an opportunity for innovation and progression. So we’re looking at our third year with hope and a whole lot of optimism. We have a great and loyal following that’s always growing, as well as an amazing team working with us in Hull and Leeds who consistently work hard to ensure that our company delivers the best at all times - thanks to all of you.

Plans for the next year? As always, we'll be delivering Gin School weekly, with Andy at the helm in Hull, and Simon and Emma in Leeds. This week, we're launching our latest limited edition gin, Hotham's Summer Edition, bursting with orange, pink grapefruit and lime - it's the perfect gin for a summer's day and just 50 bottles are available online and from our Hull and Leeds Gin Schools. We'll also be opening our Distillery Bar in Leeds every Friday and Saturday evening - come and join us and the Hotham's team and find out about what we do.

As always, we'll be keeping you up to date on our social media, so if you're not following us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, please find us and give us a follow. You'll find us at @hullginschool, @leedsginschool and @hothamsspirits.

I’m from a family of craftsmen and women, so I’m used to - and love - the idea of making good use of what we already have, and using and upcycling to breathe new life into old things. Beyond gin, tea and books, this is a big interest of mine, and a curious side-effect of this is an inability to throw away anything that might be vaguely useful or interesting.
