Where Men Can Become Better Gentlemen

The Chilgrove Gin Company Ltd.


The Chilgrove Gin Company Ltd., Chilgrove, Chichester, West Sussex, England, UK.


Incorporated in the fall of 2013 this business is owned by Christopher Beaumont-Hutchings (previously Christopher Tetley) and his wife medical Dr. Celia Beaumont-Hutchings. Christopher was educated as a Geologist before becoming a merchant banker, where he met his wife while spending a 4-year appointment in Australia. However, unknown to them previously, they had both been at Bristol University at the same time.

Although Christopher likes his Martini stirred and Celia likes her shaken, both clearly have a fondness for Gin, and often talked about making their own. In early 2012 they started to create plans for this to happen and part of this was to sample as many different Gins as possible (around 200) to see what they liked and why. By the end of 2013 they approached Charles Maxwell at Thames Distillers with a list of what they wanted to see in their own Gin. Although the profile of the Gin was clear it still took several months of final experimentation to produce. Finally their Gin was ready for launch on World Gin Day in June 2014.
