Matthew - The Lincoln Distillery

Matthew owns The Lincoln Distillery, a family run business based in Saxilby. Established in 2017, they are Lincoln’s first commercial distillery since 1863!

Working alongside his farther-in-law John, they have taken the business from its humble beginnings in the family kitchen to an established craft distillery.

As the owner, Matthew has a variety of roles that include the everyday running of the distillery, business development, distilling, blending, bottling and labelling, social media and even deliveries. 

“I love the creativity and the pride it gives producing something of a high standard. The relentless variety of work offers multiple obstacles and reminds us we are always learning.”

When he does get some free time, Matthew likes to spend it with his wife and son. He has also recently learned to ride a motorbike plus planning all the things they want to do as a family after lockdown.

The Lincoln Distillery are a local, family run distillery who are passionate about their craft and promoting Lincolnshire. They are the home of Lincoln Gin, which is now available in London Dry, Cask Aged and Navy Strength varieties.

They also have a number of exciting projects in development! For regular updates find then on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
