Did you know Camden has a long history of producing Gin?

1869, Camden Lock. The heart of London’s gin distilling & warehousing with its footprint stretching 20 acres from the Lock to the Roundhouse. An express train exported its gin daily around the world. Faint memories now only exist in the form of street names such as ‘Juniper Crescent’. Whilst the distillery & warehouse buildings remain, they have since changed use and those who walk on its surrounding cobble stones are blissfully unaware of its history. Fifty years after the last gin production left Camden Lock, this past industrial glory has now been unearthed and reinvigorated.

Enter the amazing Half Hitch. A new business in Camden. As Founder, Mark Holdsworth says,

“After a fifteen year career in the spirit industry spanning R&D, Sales, Marketing and Global, I decided to take the bold step of launching my own gin. I chose a distinctive set of key botanicals: Black Tea, Bergamot, Wood, Pepper and Hay. I also unearthed a past gin glory of Camden Lock by bringing back craft production to the area.”




A brief description from us doesn’t do it justice.

Tinctures and distillates made in The Vaults, Camden Lock. This time-intensive heritage craft is combined with modern day vacuum distillation – the latter preserves delicate flavours by being able to lower the ingredients’ boiling points. The resulting blends are layered and then further blended with a copper pot still gin which results in the 40% abv Distilled Gin. HALF HITCH® uses the finest single estate, Malawian Black Tea & Calabrian Bergamot – and an additional complement of English wood, pepper and hay. The whole leaf tea blend is from different harvests, fields and tea varietals across the estate. The key ingredient of Back Tea is re-blended each season to achieve the optimum flavour and keep consistency and requires the art of expert blending not the replication of a simple recipe. The citrus Bergamot, a natural cross between a bitter orange and a lemon, is from ancient citrus groves in Calabria, Southern Italy.

Currently selling in Selfridges for £57.65, OurCamden members can get their hands on a bottle for only £30.
