Our Story

At the Rugby Distillery, we pride ourselves on crafting bold spirits using British-sourced ingredients and botanicals to create unique flavours with a superior quality.

spirit of the game.

1823 – the year William Webb Ellis picked up a football and ran with it at Rugby School. This significant and monumental moment in time created the game of rugby. Just like William Webb Ellis, at Rugby Distillery we pay our respects to tradition whilst embracing the unconventional.

We are proud to be crafted in the fields of Rugby and to be carrying on the spirit of a schoolboy who picked up a ball and ran with it. So, raise a glass to William, and to the spirit of the game.
