Like many Liverpool natives, our ancestry is traced back to Ireland. William Murphy, a young mariner, left Wexford harbour in 1889 with a dream of better life. He arrived in Liverpool, which was then one of the greatest maritime cities on earth. Fast forward 130 years and 4 generations later; now three brothers have embarked on a different type of journey with Murphy’s Gin.
We pride ourselves in being a family business and a craft distillery. We have slowly developed our recipes using a carefully chosen blend of botanicals. Our philosophy is simple; every batch is prepared by hand and we use traditional distillation methods to achieve a superior and authentic gin. We distil in small batches of less than 50 bottles using hand crafted copper stills at our micro distillery in the North Docks area of Liverpool.
Our high-quality, award winning craft gins don’t use any sugar in the recipes; we don’t need to, as the blend of botanicals and ingredients we use create all the taste you need. Our flavoured gins still have a central juniper background. All of our Gins are also vegan friendly and are allergen free.
All of our ingredients and packaging have been sourced from UK based companies. Being environmentally conscious, we have deliberately chosen bottles which do not use an excess of glass. This means that more bottles can be manufactured and transported with a lesser carbon footprint than if we used heavy bottomed glass bottles. Our corks and paper labels are all sourced from suppliers with sustainability & ethical credentials and we compost all of our spent botanicals.
