Tipsy Fruit Gins Ltd., Tipsage Farm, Newnham Bridge, Tenbury Wells, Worcestershire, England, UK.
Started a few
years earlier, Tipsy Fruit Gins Ltd. was established in 2004 as a retirement
project by husband and wife team Colin & Phyllis Hingston. It started out
as a kitchen table enterprise using produce from their Worcestershire farm to
make fruit based Gins and Vodkas. In 2004 they brought their daughter, Michele
Kruger, into the business as full time Managing Director responsible for
running the operation.
Today the office and administration is run from the farm but the production and bottling is carried out at nearby Kyrewood, Tenbury Wells - with four generations of the family helping out. In 2013 they produced 18,000-liters (4,750 gallons) or 36,000 bottles of Gin and Vodka infused drink.
