Silent Pool Gin creates world's largest and most expensive gin bottle

23 February, 2016

Surrey-based distillery Silent Pool has created a nine-litre bottle of its signature Silent Pool Gin, which is believed to be the largest and most expensive bottle of gin ever.

The one-off release has a retail price of £5,000 and will be exhibited at London’s Hedonism Wines on March 10.

The bottle’s artwork is hand-painted by artist Laura Barrett, who drew inspiration from the botanicals used in the the gin’s creation.

Silent Pool Distillers is located on the Duke of Northumberland’s Albury Estate in the Surrey Hills.

Silent Pool Gin launched in March 2015.

It was chosen for the maiden voyage of P&O’s £475m flagship Britannia and has also been available for tastings for Eurostar’s first-class passengers at St Pancras.

Silent Pool Gin is created using 24 botanicals, including lavender, chamomile, kafir lime and honey.
It is available in a standard 70cl bottle at a retail price of £39.95.

Silent Pool Gin is widely stocked at Majestic and elsewhere across the south east, at Soho Wines and Gerry’s in London, and The Good Spirits Company in Glasgow, among many other retailers.

Other products in the Silent Pool range include Albury’s Limited Release and Admiral Collingwood Navy Strength gins, a limited release vodka and two small batch eau-de-vies, apricot and plum.

The team behind the Silent Pool Distillery include James Shelbourne, managing director of Inspirit Brands, and Ian McCulloch, a former commercial director of ITV.
