The idea for Smithies Gin came from Smithies Deli owner Patti & her two daughters, Jill & Beth. With a good few years of gin knowledge under our belts (as well as drinking it) we decided to create our own with some family history behind it.
Our late Grandad Donald’s passion for all things horticultural inspired our gooseberry & redcurrant botanicals & our love for of being social/social gatherings which is how Smithies Gin came to be one evening sitting together in the kitchen with G&T & the rest is history!
The main ethic behind Smithies is that we want you to embark on your own journey & challenge that fruit bowl with us! From the overlooked pear with ginger ale, the Mediterranean influence of tomato, basil & black pepper to “I’ve only got oranges” – a zesty favourite of ours – your options are unlimited with Smithies Gin.
