Lymestone Brewery is our first BREWER PARTNERSHIP.   A family run micro brewery based in Stone, Staffordshire.  Run by husband and wife team Viv and Ian Bradford (Head Brewer), and daughter Sarah (also a brewer at Lymestone). 

After seeing the potential that this opportunity could bring to their business and for their customers to enjoy, Viv and Brad decided to partner with us to create their first Beer Spirit. 

We worked together to decide which beer we should distil, landing on Stone the Crows as the one to go with.

We did 3 trial samples and all of them are great to be honest, but this is the one we unanimously chose as the final product for the Stone the Crows Beer Spirit.

The characteristics of the Stone the Crows beer is clear to taste in the Beer Spirit – there’s no doubting where the spirit is from.

The COVID-19 pandemic hit brewers hard.  Fortunately, Lymestone started on this journey with us just before lockdown and had an almost full brew of Stone the Crows beer that was unlikely to sell, so most of it was sent over to us to distil.

Upon its release, Stone the Crows Beer Spirit sold out within the first 2 weeks.  3 more batches are under way and pre-orders are being taken now, please visit www.lymestonebrewery.net.

Tasting Notes

Stone the Crows Beer Spirit is smooth and peppery, with hints of caramel and vanilla, and with a long malty finish (41% ABV).

Kelham Island Brewery is our second BREWER PARTNERSHIP.  An independent brewery located in Kelham Island Quarter, Sheffield.

Kelham Island Brewery had been thinking about distilling their beer for a while.  Fortunately, for them up we popped on social media.

We didn’t do trial samples, they already knew they wanted to create a beer spirit from their popular pale ale, Pale Rider and put their trust in us to create something special for them….and that’s what we have done!   The hops really come through in this spirit.

This spirit is so smooth and citrusy.  This has been a favourite amongst people that don’t usually like spirits, they’ve finally found a neat spirit they can drink and enjoy #itsallaboutthehops.

Available to buy from Kelham Island’s online shop www.kelhambrewery.co.uk.
