Silent Pool Distillers - sponsors of Guildford Summer Festival

Silent Pool
Silent Pool Distillers is an artisan distillery located on the Albury Estate, nestled at the foot of the Surrey Hills.With an authentic approach to distilling, their expert distillers have created a delectable portfolio of spirits including gins, vodkas, and liqueurs, along with their award winning Silent Pool Gin.

Founded in the Spring of 2014, and licensed later that year, the Surrey based distillery was set up by a group of friends drawn by a common passion for craft distilling and a shared vision of creating premium spirits with uncompromising quality. Like all of their spirits, Silent Pool Gin is crafted with exceptional care, using the very finest botanicals from nature to capture the essence and sprawling beauty of the Surrey Hills.

With the drive to expand their presence both nationally and internationally, Silent Pool Distillers have recently opened the doors to their new still house; a converted farmhouse built on the back of their original distillery. The new extension contains an 1800L, custom made copper still, 5 times the size of their original still Juliet, allowing the company to keep up with the current and increasing global demand.

Unlike many other distilleries, Silent Pool Distillers proudly bottle their spirits onsite ensuring that each product is entirely crafted within the four walls of the distillery. Certainly worth the effort to create a range of delicate, complex and award winning spirits that are rolling out across the globe.

The distillery, once a cluster of dilapidated farm buildings, is now a popular site for visitors. Nestled on the banks of the spring-fed Silent Pool, the distillery is open to visitors 7 days a week, Monday-Saturday 9:30-17:00, Sundays & Bank holidays 10:00 - 16:00. You can even immerse yourself into the world of Silent Pool Distillers with one of their distillery tours, from floral workshops to walking gin tours, there really is something for everyone.
