Ask Geoff


Mark Gamble, the co-owner of Two Birds, established the business on 23rd February 2012. After months of wrestling with HMRC to ensure their licensing was in place, he turned his attention to the still. An electrical engineer by trade, Mark designed and built the 25 litre copper and brass still himself, nicknaming it ‘Gerard’s No.1.’


This bespoke still is where the magic happens. Using quite complex electrical controls to make sure that an exact amount of heat is given at every stage of the distillation process, this ability to change the heat input and control Gerard’s No.1 reflux and resting times is crucial in the flavour of the gin. Each batch gives enough gin for about 100 bottles at a time, making it a very small scale production. Given that it typically takes less than four hours for the distilling to take place, Mark is able to keep an ever watchful eye at all times.

Two Birds is small batch, handcrafted and carefully controlled

 

In Spring 2013, Two Birds London Dry Gin was launched on the market, starting its sale at Market Harborough, where its production is based. Whilst the gin distillation happens in this market town, Two Birds Spirits official headquarters are located in rural eicestershire, Mark’s home turf. Looking around Leicestershire, it’s easy to see why the countryside became such a focal point to this gin’s character and identity; Charnwood forest proves to have a very beautiful, green and rugged landscape, something which should indeed be cherished. This celebration of the countryside is portrayed throughout everything that Two Birds does, from it’s very name to its pretty illustrated labelling, which uses simply black organic ink hand-drawn on to each and every bottle.
