Silent Pool Distillers produce a range of handcrafted spirits, including Silent Pool Gin, at our small distillery by the legendary Silent Pool in the Surrey Hills – a beautiful location that inspires everything we produce. Our distillery is also a popular visitor destination with tours and events as well as a fully-stocked distillery shop and Pool Bar.
The distillery was founded in 2014 by Ian McCulloch and James Shelbourne. Taking their inspiration from Scottish whisky distilleries, the two friends had a vision of producing handcrafted, artisan spirits using locally sourced ingredients. A small group of barns adjacent to the Silent Pool proved to be the perfect location and so began the Silent Pool Distillery story.
The Surrey Hills is fundamental to everything we produce: our spirits are inspired by the botanicals that grow here, the landscape that surrounds us, and the history and legends associated with the area. Our rural location is a constant reminder of our need to work sustainably to minimise our impact on both the local and wider environment by reducing our carbon footprint. We also sponsor local community events and produce a gin whose proceeds support the Halow Project in Guildford.
