Prince Charles Morrland Spirits

Northumberland-based gin producer the Moorland Spirit Company welcomed the Prince of Wales to its distillery this week.

Prince Charles was taken onto the moors around the distillery to inspect the wild green juniper that grows there, and he also helped plant a baby juniper tree.

The prince was then taken around the distillery by head distiller Chris Garden to learn about the triple-distillation technique that the Moorland Spirit Company utilises. Prince Charles also sampled the distillery’s gin neat and in a Classic Hepple Martini.
