Meet The Team

Our Story

Rugby Distillery was created by Rugby native’s, brother and sister team Richard & Emma.

We were on a mission to craft a spirit which encompasses the intensity and affinity of the great English sport of rugby, and our town.

To pay homage to the town and sport, what better place to craft the spirit than in its birthplace in Warwickshire?

Our business is a family affair, and everyone gets involved in the process.  It is a legacy for our family and generations to come.

The Spirit Of The Game

When creating our brand, we wanted to pay homage to the town and the sport of Rugby.

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.

So, let’s raise a glass to William, and to the spirit of the game.

In Memory Of Our Brother

Our loving brother, Ian, passed away in May 2020. 

He loved life and we loved him.

After we lost him we needed something positive to focus on, and it became a catalyst for change.

He was our guardian, he loved a good G&T so we know he would have loved our new venture, this has been a driving force behind Rugby Distillery.
