Gattertop Drinks Company

Welcome to Gattertop Drinks Co; artisan crafted, award winning spirits made with organically grown fruits and botanics from the orchards and hedgerows of the Herefordshire hills at Gattertop. From ancient branches to bottle. Naturally flavoursome spirits with a truly sustainable conscience.

Our Story

Gemma spent a childhood sampling orchard fruits in our orchards at Gattertop in Herefordshire which was the inspiration behind creating delicious vodka drinks. Benefitting from an abundance of home-grown produce at the historic family farm of Gattertop, Gemma experimented with various spirits until she found the award-winning recipes.

It was a glut of the delicious damsons from the orchards at Gattertop each summer that inspired the creation of the brand. Production increased from litre bottles and demi-johns to full size barrels and moved from the kitchen to a barn on the farm - and the first product - Damson No. 12 vodka liqueur was born.

Since then Gemma identified a gap in the botanical vodka market as an alternative to gin.

When Damson No 12 was entered into the Great Taste Awards it was immediately awarded two stars in its first year. It has subsequently won multiple awards and is still made to the same recipe in the same careful way.

In 2020, Gemma created a new product. Botanic No 7 tells the same orchard story, and brings a collection of other distinctive ingredients that our orchards provide from different times of the year. We have the blossom and flowers from spring and the leaves from summer so that Gattertop Drinks Co has a drink for all seasons. In winter the orchards are resting.

Our commitment is to preserving and protecting our environment.

In a climate where the world is facing many environmental and social challenges, Gattertop Drinks Company is paving the way to be the thought-leader in sustainable British spirits and doing it’s part to make the world a better place.

Our motto is take what you need and leave for future generations. We want to preserve and look after what we have and commit to long term goals to improve the sustainability of the business moving forward.
