A fresh breeze from the wild Hepple woods, our Douglas Fir Sherbet is a hit of Hepple for your cocktail glass. Sophisticated and elegant, our Sherbet elevates your serves with ease.

We harvest big, fresh, tropical flavours from our Douglas fir trees overlooking the Scottish border to bring you flavours that transports you (and your cocktail) to our misty ancient pine forests…with a Piña Colada in hand.

A tangy rimmed-garnish for your G&Ts, Douglas Fir Vodka and tonics, and a range of cocktails from sours to your cosmopolitans, this is an easy way to bring the refreshing flavours of the wild pine forests to your drinks.

Our Home

With over 4000 acres of remote land to explore, Hepple hosts rich biodiversity that lends to our botanicals offering some of the best flavours out there.

We have the cleanest waters in England to nourish our plants, with babbling brooks feeding into tranquil ponds surrounded by lovage and blackcurrants. Gusting winds force our bog myrtle and Douglas firs to root deep into the earth to take hold, while wild horses, cows, pigs and stags churn up the ground so that our juniper trees can take root. Over a fifth of juniper found in Northumberland National Park resides in Hepple, which we exclusively harvest.

As our distillery is on our estate, the botanicals we harvest are fresh and picked at their prime, ensuring that the flavours and aromas of Hepple fill every bottle we produce.

Our Wilding Programme

We harvest botanicals for our spirits directly from our estate, located within Northumberland National Park, and are the only distillery allowed to do so. Our priority is to keep sustainability and the local environment in focus with the estate’s Wilding Programme, ensuring we give back more than we take every year.

The Programme sees the restoration of natural processes that include the return of wild ponies and ancient breed cattle back to the moors for the first time in over 150 years. So far we’ve reintroduced over 85 animals back to our estate, where they roam the grasslands and moors, churning up hardened soil in order for wild birch, oak and juniper seeds to take hold against the tumultuous climate. Alongside our Wilding Programme our Juniper Trust highlights planting juniper trees across land once destroyed by grazing sheep on our estate, building an environment truly in harmony with our spirits and ensuring that our unique flavours can be enjoyed for generations to come.

Douglas Fir

Process

We harvest our Douglas fir needles in early summer, while they’re in their prime, before stripping them off their branches and drying them, capturing notes of refreshing pine, zesty pink grapefruit, fresh pineapple and ripe melon.

We then grind them and blend them with a mix of salt and sugar to bring a bit of tang to your cocktail garnish.
