Nantwich Gin

Nantwich Gin is the signature London dry from Cheshire Botanicals. The gin was developed in honour of the town of Nantwich and its rich history and culture. Our North West hometown in Cheshire is filled with stories from the past, of which we drew our inspiration from.

Nantwich Gin is also a celebration of one of Nantwich’s most famous sons, John Gerard, who was a botanist and Royal herbalist in Tudor times. Gerard also wrote what became recognised as the book on plants in the 17th Century. Nantwich Gin's botanicals were chosen with Gerard's herbal garden in mind.

The key botanicals include the traditional "golden trio" of juniper berries, coriander seeds and angelica root, combined with delicate florals such as rose and lavender. Lemon thyme brings a citrus twist to the gin, complimented by punchy cardamom and a lingering finish of pink pepper corns.

The much-loved Nantwich Gin label was kindly designed by local artist Jiri Borsky, who fused an array of traditional Nantwich architecture into one. Please visit: for more information.

When choosing the bottle, we knew that the 'perfect pour' was very important. After testing a range of bottles, we selected the design as seen to the right, to work with Nantwich Gin's unique label.

Since its launch in November 2020, Nantwich Gin has received fantastic feedback from both locals and gin enthusiasts across the U.K. We love hearing thoughts from gin lovers across the country. Please feel free to get in touch via our social media profiles and spread the word about our gins to your friends and families.

Matron's Strength Hot Toddy.jpg


Nantwich Gin 'Matron's Strength' is a navy strength version of our signature spirit, at 57% abv. 


Matron's Strength was developed during the tough months of 2021 to honour the bravery and tenacity of healthcare professionals across the world. A celebration of their continuous dedication, pre and post pandemic.


Deb Challinor, our sales director and co-founder, is a dedicated NHS Matron with more than 40 years in healthcare and after seeing close-up, the impact of the last few years on our health workers, we couldn’t think of a better symbol for strength.


The launch of Matron's Strength was the perfect way to celebrate the first Birthday of Nantwich Gin, released on the 26th of November 2021 - a super-limited edition run in 20cl bottles, stamped with the Cheshire Botanicals logo at the wax seal's top. Only 120 bottles were released, with a view to potentially producing 70cl versions in future batches.


The Matron's Strength navy truly ups the ante of Nantwich Gin’s 40% abv. recipe to 57%, completely transforming the experience and bringing different botanicals to the fore. Served neat, Matron's Strength has an syrupy texture, coating the palate and bringing out the angelica root and coriander alongside strengthened florals.


Served with ice and tonic, the effect is sweeter, with a hint of earthiness. The higher abv. pushes the warming spice of the pink peppercorns further into the background, allowing the delicate botanicals from the signature gin to really flourish.


This navy strength concoction coats the palate, warms your cockles and offers an entirely different perspective of the much loved Nantwich Gin. This is definitely one for the true gin lovers. Matron recommends serving with a healthy dose of tonic!

From the sales of Matron's Strength, we hope to donate a percentage of profits to a charity who supports nurses and funds educational opportunities for healthcare professionals. At this time, the charity cannot be named. When we are able to donate, we will make the announcement via our social media channels:
