Who we are

At Patience Distillery, we believe it is worth taking time for perfection. Founded in 2020, we began experimenting with distillation techniques that go beyond conventional crafting methods to create spirits with unique flavours that are a true reflection of the underlying botanicals. Over time we discovered that cold distillation could help us achieve the most delicious and pronounced flavour profiles. Rather than boiling our delicate botanicals in a traditional copper still, we use specialised equipment that allows us to gently distil under vacuum at controlled cold temperatures, ensuring that we can extract the very best flavours. To create each 100-bottle batch, we individually cold-distil each botanical at its own dedicated temperature, then comes the careful hand-blending process, producing distinct spirits that honour each season.

We are committed to limiting our environmental impact and use 100% renewable energy to power our operations. Botanical ingredients are organic where possible, as is our base spirit which is made from UK-grown certified organic wheat. Our bottles and packaging are either recyclable or compostable and we are constantly seeking ways to further reduce the impact of every aspect of our operations.

Patience Distillery is a family affair, founded by Husband and Wife team Maxime and Holly. They share a passion for crafting truly exceptional spirits. Though the Distillery was founded in 2020, the seed was planted nearly a decade earlier. Holly had always held a keen interest in wines and spirits and began studies at the Wine and Spirits Education Trust which, over the course of 6 years, led to WSET Level 3 in Wines and WSET Level 3 in Spirits. Maxime, originally an engineer by trade, was captivated by the possibilities of small-scale distilling. Born and raised in the south of France, he is passionate about spirits and craft distilling and holds a Certificate in Distilling from the Institute of Brewing and Distilling. Couple this with Holly’s green fingers and keen nose and it was only a matter of time before Patience Distillery was nurtured from dinner-table dream to reality.

We are excited to share our beautiful spirits with you – this may require some patience due to the seasonal nature of our limited batches, but we promise it will be worth it. Good things come to those that wait.
