The Official Tourism Website for Shropshire

Emma Glynn, one of the UK’s few female distillers and director of The Shropshire Distillery, is urging people to buy locally this Christmas.


She said, “It’s been a really bumpy few years for small businesses with Covid-19, energy hikes, soaring interest rates, and inflation. Most recently spirit producers like us have been hit with alcohol duty hikes. So this Christmas, please support local Shropshire businesses like ours to keep them thriving.”


The Shropshire Distillery has an online shop and will be introducing a click-and-collect option in time for Christmas gift buying.


“We are bringing back our two limited edition Christmas gins – Cranberry and Clementine, and Frankincense and Myrrh – which are available to buy online along with our award-winning gins, liqueurs, and new vodka. You can also purchase gift vouchers for our distillery experiences – the gin tasting, tour and talk package, the gin school experience, and our new cocktail masterclass.”


Ellesmere’s small batch distillery has received a lot of recognition this year, having been named as a finalist for Brewery/Distillery of the Year at the Midlands Food Drink & Hospitality Awards 2023, scooping the award for ‘Best Small Business’ at the Shropshire Chamber Business Awards in June, and receiving a Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice Award this year.


The Shropshire Distillery has recently been announced as one of three finalists for ‘Experience of the Year’ at the West Midlands Tourism Awards 2024. The winner will be announced early next year.

"🏰✨ Dive into the heart of Shrewsbury's Castle Quarter – the epicenter of history and grandeur! 🏰 Home to four of the town's largest historic treasures – Shrewsbury Castle, Library, Prison, and Train Station. 

Did you know Shrewsbury Castle's foundations were laid in 1083 by the 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery? 
Montgomery, a cousin of William the Conqueror, earned this castle and more as a thank-you for his aid during the Norman conquest.

From royal stronghold to a 16th-century transformation, Shrewsbury Castle has quite the story. Now, it stands majestically, housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. 👑🏰 Ready to step into the pages of history?
