Making our gin - The Story

We are an independent craft distiller owned and operated by the distillers.  Our spirits reflect the freedom we have to pursue quality and innovation over corporate bottom lines. 

 Turncoat is a distillery born out of secrecy and rebellion.  Our Head Distiller, one of the original craft brewers in the UK since 2010, turned rebel from his own brewery and founded Turncoat Distillery.  Turning his coat from his brewery he put together a small team of secret distillers, based in unrevealed settings, releasing unexpected spirits.  Turncoat is an independent distillery that is owned and led by its distillers. 


Former Craft Brewer in Liverpool. Turned Coat from his own Love Lane Pale Ale Brewery and set up Turncoat Distillery as Head Distiller. Is a pain to work with.



Lead Operational Distiller. Turned Coat from years of teaching Science due to rubbish government targets. Regularly stops Terry setting himself on fire.



Michael is the General manager for our bar in the Royal Albert Dock basement. Whether it's smashing out cocktails or directing swathes of afternoon teas and gin tastings, Michael is the force behind the relaxing vibes of our underground space.



Paul is our Head Pizziola and Voltagabbana Leader! Leading up the pizza and wood fired kitchen 'Voltagabbana Pizza'. Paul leads a crack team of Pizza nerds creating the best pizzas in Liverpool. Downstairs in our Albert Dock bar and now at outdoor Botanical Garden in Baltic Triangle too!
