Frequently Asked Questions?
WHAT EXACTLY IS SMALL-BATCH?
Small batch is exactly that.
It is gin that's distilled in small batches, with an ethos behind the brand that is filled with passion for creating a beautiful gin for gin lovers to enjoy.
The closest you can probably get is that the still in which small-batch producers distil alcohol is smaller than the ones used by the industry giants.
People like to say it also involves more care and attention to detail, and here at PitWheel we can assure you that a lot of love goes into creating our range of gins!!
ARE OUR PRICES COMPETITIVE?
PitWheel's range of gins sit within the artisan/craft gin market and as such are produced on a small-batch scale. We are a family run business and we want to keep our ethos and passion for producing our gins. We are not in the business to rival the big brands and as such we have done extensive market research into our competitors and have nestled our pricing structure slap bang in the middle of our competitors.
So yes is your answer - as a small-batch distillery we priced competitively in our market.
DO WE USE ARTIFICAL FLAVOURINGS?
No, no and no.
PitWheel Distillery are all about flavour infusion from natural botanicals, fruits, herbs and spices.
Many of the flavoured gins on the market, are extremely sweet to the taste with very strong artificial flavourings.
Our aim is to be a lot more subtle in our flavours thus giving a smooth finish on the palate and as such, a lot of work has gone into our market research with extensive taste testing and recipe development and we are satisfied that we have reached the right balance with the flavours offered in our gin range to date.
WILL WE BE RELEASING MORE FLAVOURS?
Yes we certainly will and we absolutely cannot wait!!
We have several recipes already finalised and ready to produce as Special Editions however we need to choose the perfect times for these to be released.
Rest assured that you will be the first to know when this is. We will make our announcements both on here and our social media sites so please, please make sure you follow us on
