Warwick’s first gin distillery, Moores of Warwick, is now open.

This venture is the brainchild of Martin Moore, whose cancer diagnosis in 2011 spurred him on to pursue his dream of opening a distillery.

Martin and his wife, Lorraine, have set up in a unit at Hatton Shopping Village, where they make small batches of hand crafted gin and run a gin school.

Moores Gin is stocked in some off-licenses and pubs in the Warwickshire area but the aim is to broaden its reach.

They would also like to expand the selection of alcohol on offer in time, to include gin and vodka as well.
