Craft Distilled Spirits From Bristol
Sign up to our newsletter


Psychopomp Microdistillery was never founded, it just sort of happened. Liam and Danny had been building hobby stills and experimenting with gin recipes since 2007. When HMRC licensed the basement of Liam's house as a distillery the demand for their gin exploded. Liam and Danny formed a company in 2014 and moved into new premises on St Michaels Hill in Bristol shortly after. Psychopomp Microdistillery is now a team of 4 and has a sister distillery, Circumstance Distillery, down the road in Whitehall, Bristol.

Our Work

We produce our craft distilled spirits on 30L copper pot stills using a 'single shot' method. Woden was our first gin and is available all year. It is a classic London dry gin with fresh grapefruit zest and fennel seed. We also produce limited runs of seasonal gins. Runs are limited to 750 bottles, each numbered. We develop and distil gins for many independent businesses around the country. These gins are unique expressions created for and with our collaborators. A rotating selection of these gins are available from our online shop. We produce a variety of other spirits, each as unique as our gins. We produce a Parisian style absinthe, the first English aqvavit, a single origin coffee digestif and bottled cocktails.

Gin School

Distilling Workshop

Every week we run sessions at the distillery where you can learn the art of distilling and distil your own gin. There is enourmous number of botanicals to choose from. At the end of the session you take home a bottle of your very own gin. You can book these sessions online

Gin Masterclass

Our Gin Masterclasses run weekly. One of our team will greet you with gin and tonic on arrival at the distillery. They will guide you through the history of gin, the process of making gin and answer any questions you may have. This is followed by a tutored gin tasting, and another gin and tonic to finish the session. Bookings available through Yuup.


Vouchers for Distill Your Own Gin and Gin Experince sessions are avaiable through our shop
