Poetic License Independent Small Batch Distillery are based in the North East of England within the Roker Hotel. The distillery is quite unique in that they have the only Copper & Column still, housed within the bar of the same name. This allows customers to experience the distillation process and chat to the distillers whilst enjoying a Gin & Tonic (naturally a Poetic License tipple!)


Poetic License, has gone from strength to strength from when Mark Hird, the MD decided to move into distillation in 2015, this was after he had set up a brewery based in Durham as well as owning and still operating several bespoke gastro pubs. Poetic License has produced a leading range of core gins, as well as a range of gin liqueurs since inception and, has won many awards across the globe for these products.


Fast forward to 2019 and Poetic License has seen several great changes with the appointments of Ben Murphy as Head Distiller as well as Lewis Hendry as the Senior Distiller, this has enabled the distillery to diversify even more in a crowded market place for the gin category. It has also been quite an auspicious year for the distillery as they have collaborated with other trailblazing companies to produce gins that break the traditional perceived boundaries.




This takes us now, to the next exciting limited run Gin Liqueur, which has been made ‘Gin of the Month’ with participating Greene King venues. Tutti Frutti Gin Liqueur, a 70cl, 21%ABV gin liqueur will take your taste buds back to delicious sweet shop treats and who does not want to savour a fruity, punchy smack in the mouth?


by their Head Distiller Ben Murphy, he was looking to produce a gin liqueur that provides consumers with a taste explosion but keeping the ABV lower and far sweeter, so the perfect pour mixes well with tonics and lemonade adding to transporting the palate on a rollercoaster of summer fruits and taste sensations. Poetic License is all about the flavour and this gin liqueur is no exception!
