Where are your favourite spirits actually made?

What is the 'Actually Made In' Campaign?

In an industry crowded with brands claiming authenticity,  Manchester Gin, Tarquin’s Cornish Gin, Masons of Yorkshire and Brighton Gin are speaking out in support of genuine craftsmanship.

If you’re as proud as we are of our industry, and of how and where you make your spirits, then we invite you to show us your distillery, your people, your home. 

Fill out the form below and we will send you a personalised badge to verify your distillery’s Actually Made In status.

Why get involved?

With the ‘Actually Made In’ campaign, we aim to not only elevate the presence of craft distilleries & their associated brands, but also contribute to the movement of supporting local businesses to survive and thrive.

We want to encourage consumers to think about where spirits come from, and consider craft distilleries when making purchase decisions.

Most of all, we want to shine a light on hard-working distilleries and their teams who are crafting amazing spirits day in, day out.

We’re inviting other distilleries to get involved and share photos, stories and insights of their distillery life, with the hashtag  #ActuallyMadeIn, as well as the Actually Made In badge and their location, whether that’s a state-of-the-art distillery or your garden shed. We’re hopeful that by launching this campaign, we can inspire consumers to look beyond the label and understand more about where and how their favourite spirits are made, encourage them to support smaller craft distilleries and maybe even discover a new favourite spirit along the way.”

Founder of Manchester Gin and The Spirit of Manchester Distillery

Authenticity is really important to us, our doors are always open for distillery tours where people can meet our team, handle the very same botanicals we put in our spirits, meet our copper stills and see where the magic happens! We’re proud to stand alongside Manchester Gin, encouraging other distilleries to celebrate their local roots and preserve the authenticity of craft spirits.

We research, distil, and bottle every drop onsite and every visitor can see this at our open plan distillery. For us #ActuallyMadeIn is not only a celebration of craftsmanship and transparency, it’s a call to action.

Karl Mason

Owner, Masons of Yorkshire

Each bottle of Brighton Gin is carefully washed and filled by hand, we stick each label on and dip every bottle in wax ourselves. We pride ourselves on being as open and transparent as possible about our processes, and all the care that goes into crafting each and every bottle.
