AboutLocksley Distilling Co.
In early 2013, John Cherry and Cynthia King stepped off a plane from NYC, and started Locksley Distilling Co. Ltd in John’s parents’ house in Sheffield. What began as one person in an attic, grew into a team of eight, operating from their distillery in Portland Works, a grade 2* listed building.
The small but passionate team have been bringing the unexpected to the spirits world ever since. Never happy to give you a tipple that you can find elsewhere, the team thrives on finding a unique twist to make their products quirky and memorable.
Their tours, gin school, and cocktail classes consistently receive 5* reviews:
“Cynthia and John gave us a memorable experience, leading us in a fascinating tour of their craft distillery and in making our own gin. They have such passion for what they do and hearing about their journey to this point was super interesting. They were friendly and engaging, and answered all our questions throughout the afternoon. The drinks we sampled were delicious; they have developed some fantastic products that I am glad I now have in my drinks cabinet!” -Lucy G TripAdvisor reviewer
With a maximum of 8 people for gin school, and 10 for cocktails it’s always a personal and interactive experience. An incredibly relaxed atmosphere, it never feels scripted or corporate.
“There is nothing more rewarding than sharing our love and passion for the products we create through events, gin schools, master classes, and tastings so that others can enjoy or be inspired by our journey.” – John Cherry founderShop Products
