Welcome to Pigs Bay Distillery
“The Spirit of Essex”
PIGS BAY, established in 2020, is Essex’s very own craft and small batch producer of premium spirits, made here in Essex, for Essex and beyond.
We are happy to attend an event hosted by you. You can learn about Pigs Bay and sample at least four of our beautiful spirits in production, as well as a couple straight out of the Research and Development Lab. You will learn our unique process to create these spirits and we will even teach you a few tricks of the trade to transform a supermarket cheap vodka into a quality tasting spirit yourself at home. Its fun, entertaining and you will leave educated and with a nice glow.
We will bring the Gins, Tonics and our very own Essex ultra pure Water.
You will need to provide the glasses, ice and perhaps garnishes e.g a slice of lemon.
We try to restrict each session to 2 hours, but we will not generally run off at the end so we can plan a longer session as required.
We are limited on number we can attend per month, hence book early. Essex region only. Enquires welcome via contact us or send us a message to discuss your dates.
Cost per person is £20.
