TIPPLEMILL GIN ~ GENEROUS IN SPIRIT ~ FROM OUR HEART

Our Heritage

Rooted in Lincolnshire

Where it all began…

Across the road from Mill Farm stands Tower Windmill. During the 1900s Frank Craven, our farms founder, worked as the Miller producing flour from wheat for use in baking and animal feed. A natural progression saw Frank purchase the land surrounding the mill so that his sons could grow the wheat he needed for milling. Five generations later we remain custodians of the same land which now grows the grain for Tipplemill gin.

Where we are now…

Inspired by our milling heritage, Tipplemill uses the ultimate renewable energy source, the wind, to grind our grain between the millstones of the tallest working windmill in the UK to produce the all-important wholemeal flour needed to make the base alcohol spirit.

Producing a premium spirit in harmony with nature represents the perfect way to add fun and innovation to farming through a crop that has been lovingly produced on our farm over the four generations and now into the fifth.

A farm is more than land and crops, it is a family’s heritage and future
