Community Spirit


6 O’clock Gin is a craft gin brand with over 30 years’ experience in the spirits industry. We patiently distil strikingly smooth artisan gins in small batches, using traditional skills and only the best natural ingredients. Proudly British, we are very clear about our values.

The 6 O’clock Gin name was inspired by a long-held family tradition of indulging in the first G&T of the evening at 6 o’clock; a very British custom with colonial roots, still enjoyed at the distillery and shared by gin-lovers all over the world – after all, it’s always 6 o’clock somewhere.

The House of Pommery is one of the most prestigious names in Champagne – a name that is synonymous with contemporary style, elegance and finesse. Pommery was established in 1836 by Alexandre Pommery but it was the highly entrepreneurial Louise Pommery, who took over the running of the business in 1858 after the unexpected death of her husband, that the Pommery name was truly recognised. It is thanks to Louise Pommery, that it is now an international brand, distributed in over 100 countries and one of the top Grande Marque Champagne houses.
