TIPPLEMILL GIN ~ GENEROUS IN SPIRIT ~ FROM OUR HEART

TIPPLEMILL GIN ~ GENEROUS IN SPIRIT ~ FROM OUR HEART

The Mill

British Craftsmanship

Just a 10 minute drive from the farm nestled in the fen landscape stands Moulton Windmill. The tallest working windmill in the UK! Built in 1822 this windmill has stood the test of time. Now a team of volunteers carry this traditional skill into the 21st century.

Whilst our founder Frank milled his wheat for baking, we select the plumpest grains from our wheat harvest and slowly grind them between millstones to produce a delicate wholemeal flour. This serves as the foundation on which our London Dry Gin is crafted and the inspiration behind our unique bottle stopper.

To mill our wheat, 2 stars must align.

It must be a Wednesday.

Moulton Windmill is run by a wonderful team of volunteers who come in to work between 10-12am on a Wednesday to mill.

And of course it must be windy!

Our flour is made using the ultimate renewable energy source, the wind. However, the wind must be blowing between 15-20mph to turn the millstones at the optimum speed to create the perfect consistency of flour for the foundation of our base spirit.

The wheat is raised up from the ground loading floor by the wind powered chain hoist and emptied into storage bins. The sails are attached to the wind shaft which transfers the power from the wind driven sails into the drive shaft which turns the millstones and grinds the grain into flour.

We can only make Tipplemill if itโ€™s windy on a Wednesday
