Silent Pool Gin
Silent Pool was started back in 2014 by two Surrey Hill locals, Ian McCulloch and James Shelbourne. They discussed the idea of setting up a small, local distillery. The two friends had a grand vision of making a truly sustainable distillery next to a fresh water source, producing handcrafted, artisan spirits using locally sourced ingredients, but first they needed the perfect location.
After scouting many locations in the south of England, Ian happened upon Sherbourne Farm, on the banks of the magical Silent Pool in the Surrey Hills - an area of outstanding natural beauty. After getting the go-ahead to restore the dilapidated farm buildings from the landowner, Silent Pool distillery was born.
