At EZ Hampers, we’re very proud to be an Altrincham-based business. We love to support other businesses in our local area, from Timperley to Sale. That’s why we’ve decided to highlight all of the brilliant and inventive brands from our community through our blog. This week, we wanted to celebrate the talent of local gin distillers by sharing some info on our range of locally made gins.
By choosing a locally made gin, you’re reducing your carbon footprint and helping the planet whilst also aiding business in your area. Small batch, locally crafted gins are often higher quality due to the passion poured into their production. Below we’ve listed our favourite local gins from our collection, which are all available for purchase in a gift hamper, or as a beverage from our shop bar.

Did you know?: The North West of England is known for the production of many household gin names such as Greenall’s Gin.
