Conker Spirit Ltd

Southbourne, Dorset

Conker Spirit is Dorset’s first gin distillery. Nestled in the sandy backstreets of Bournemouth, Conker Spirit quietly distil their award-winning Dorset Dry gin in tiny 60 bottle batches.

Conker Spirit are the real deal; they are the distillers, the bottlers, labellers and even the botanical foragers, hand picking New Forest gorse flowers destined for their copper pot still.

Conker Spirit is the brainchild and labour of love for founder Rupert Holloway who, up until a couple of years ago, you would have found donning a hard hat and hi-vis jacket in his previous career as a Chartered Surveyor.

Holloway’s plan was for Conker Spirit to do everything themselves, the right way, with a focus on quality without the shortcuts.
