The Distillery

Why Big Grin?

Timing is everything they say.

We found ourselves launching in the middle of a pretty bad year, so we decided we wanted to be an antidote. An eye of pleasure and momentarily-lost levity in the storm of 2020.

They also say when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. We prefer our lemons with ice and something stronger so we started out by making gin and vodka.

And we called it Big Grin.

A name to reflect the optimism and energy at the heart of everything we do. Let's go.

Come and visit Big Grin

There’s more to Big Grin than the distillery.

The Bottle Shop at the distillery sells our carefully chosen wines, spirits and locally brewed beers and ciders.

The Tasting Bar is where we hold tastings from wine merchants, local breweries and other distilleries. It can also be hired for private tastings.

We also have a sister restaurant (The Firehouse) and a farm shop (Upton Smokery) next door.

There are also some friendly local cab companies we know to take you home after your visit.
