    A rare blend of skills, experience and artistry

    Created using an innovative three-stage process developed in 2014, Foxhole Gin is crafted using the rare and valuable by-products from the English grape harvest: English wine grapes. Taking 8,760 hours to make, Foxhole Gin is beautifully balanced, smooth and aromatic with flavours that subtly change with each new vintage.

    Technically, you can make gin in about 48 hours, which makes you wonder why Foxhole Gin needs 8,760 – or an entire year - to make a batch. The answer is that unlike most gins which are made using grain spirit, Foxhole Gin also includes grape spirit. So the time of a full grape-growing season, harvest and first pressing for winemaking needs to pass before production can even start.

    Surplus material becomes a world-beater

    After pressing by the wineries, wine grapes are reduced to a pulpy mass of skins, flesh and pips. Each year, the wine industry produces tonnes of waste product, known by its French name, marc. Unfortunately, it usually ends up on the compost pile, along with around a third of each harvest’s precious juice. An inglorious fate for a resource so rare and valuable, so we wanted to use it in a better way. 

    Our process includes recovering marc from vineyards throughout England and sending it back for a second pressing. All that formerly lost juice is lovingly collected, fermented and made into an English Wine. Not that you’ll ever get to drink it: every drop is shipped to the distillery, where it takes its place at the heart of Foxhole Gin. 

    The Bottle

    Without wine, there would be no Foxhole Gin. And we could think of no better homage than to present our product in a Burgundy-style wine bottle. The glass is perfectly clear like Foxhole Gin itself, and sealed with a glass closure under a copper foiled seal.

    Each bottle is screen printed by hand with a precious metal ink, which is fired at a precise high temperature to turn the ink copper, along with a white ceramic ink to emphasise the detail in the design. The back and sides of the bottle are decorated with a custom illustration of vine leaves, reflecting Foxhole Gin's oenological connections. Our bold, bushy-tailed fox logo appears on the front, and in a subtly embossed form on the top of the seal.
