Stockport Gin have recently announced they are moving out of their garage distillery and into a new distillery in Stockport Town Centre.
Stockport Gin, run by husband and wife Paul and Cheryl Sharrocks (pictured), have recently announced that they are moving from their home distillery to a new location in Stockport Town Centre.
Launched in March 2019 and recent winners of the North West Business Awards 2020/21 New Business of the Year, Stockport Gin produce a multi award winning range of gins and are now embarking on the next step of their adventure.
Cheryl says, “Since we launched, we have always worked from our modest garage at home but it is safe to say we have very much outgrown this now! We’ve been looking for larger premises for some time now and with the plans we have, a location in the town centre suits us perfectly.”
It is planned that alongside the distilling operations, there will also be a retail outlet where people can visit to try the popular range of gins and buy them as well as a whole range of other products from local producers. They will then be opening the doors for people to find out exactly what goes on in the distillery by offering tours and hosting events such as taster nights and meet the makers.
Paul says, “We have known for some time that we need to move to larger premises if we are to continue to grow the business, but we also want to create a place for people to come to and see exactly what we do and how we do it. Stockport Town Centre is the perfect location for us to be able to do this and we hope to create a distillery that we can not only work from but that will draw people to the town from further afield.”
Work will begin soon on the new distillery and the couple hope to be fully operational from early summer 2021. They aren’t giving away too much more just yet but have promised to keep everyone updated via their social media channels on the progress and plans for the new distillery.
