Ryebeck Ltd. is a British company that sources, supplies and fits high quality distillery and brewery equipment. Three relatively new distilleries that have benefited from Ryebeck’s expertise are St. Giles Gin, Jarrold’s Gin and Penrhos Spirits.
St. Giles is an award-winning gin distillery founded by Simon Melton, a commercial saturation diver and his wife Alison. Inspired by his global travels and love of gin, he decided to set up a distillery with the objective of creating a modern, flavourful gin that was different to the bland styles which he felt were all too prevalent. A colleague recommended Ryebeck and construction of the distillery began around Easter 2016. Its first gin was produced a year later from a four metre-tall Kothe copper pot still named ‘Anna’ after Simon and Alison’s eldest daughter. St Giles gins have won a World Gin Awards Gold Medal for the last two years, the Raspberry, Rhubarb and Ginger Gin is a Bronze Medal winner and the Divers’ Edition Naval Strength received a Special Mention in The Gin Guide Awards 2018.
