The journey began in 2010 when Matt travelled to Mongolia to be best man at his brother's wedding. Vodka plays a central role in Mongolian daily social life and the traditional wedding day started by sharing a bowl of vodka. The drink was even included as part of the ceremony itself, which the guests (of all ages) shared!
They started making their own vodka in 2014 with the desire to create a spirit that is the very best and purest that could be made; a vodka aimed at those seeking a drink to savour rather than guzzle. The ultimate vodka! Wild Knight English vodka was the result.
And the name? To encapsulate a spirit of adventure and the heritage of England, Wild Knight sums up all the fun, enjoyment and traditional English spirit. The journey continued with the launch of Nelson's Gold in 2017, a delicious caramelised spirit that has proved to be a real crowd-pleaser.
In June 2018 saw the launch of Boadicea Gin – Classic (blue bottle); a delicious, copper-pot distilled gin with notes of citrus, thyme and nettle which receives amazing feedback from lovers of premium gin. Boadicea Winter (red bottle) followed in the winter, and this April saw the launch of our distilled pink gin – Rosa, a delicious pink gin with subtle notes of peach and cherry.
Their ethos is simple - create authentic, premium spirits with real provenance and personality.
