Master Tippler

Happy Tom

We are delighted and proud to have Mr Tom Nichol as part of the Harrogate Tipple Family. He’s not only a very experienced Master Distiller but also an adorable Scotsman, the nicest man you’ll meet!

Last year he was honoured with a lifetime award by The Gin Guild – they made testament to the contribution he’d made to gin over 42 years in the drinks industry. Tom started his career in Whisky before working at Tanqueray overseeing the making of Tanqueray No10 as well as others.

We had great fun so far making our first Batch of Harrogate Gin with Tom and introduced him to Harrogate, which he loves so much that he’s become a regular visitor, even when he’s not making gin! He is also very excited about the move to Ripley and can sometimes be seen wandering around the gardens getting inspiration for seasonal gins …

We’ve got a great future planned with Tom, with many more tipples in the pipeline.
