Our story…

Four years ago, Sally and Joanna opened North Bar & Kitchen in Leicester’s vibrant West End – a bar and restaurant which has become famous not only for its fabulous cuisine but for its unrivalled range of 41 gins.

But the pair had another burning ambition – a desire to create their own craft gin. Their inspiration would come in the shape of a cocktail they sold in the bar – the Rhubarb Tumble – which combined tart rhubarb with sweet, zesty blood orange.

A highly successful crowdfunding campaign and a close partnership with a local distiller saw this dream turn into a reality, and Sally and Joanna have come up with what they believe is the perfect gin.

When it came to naming their gin, it was easy. Sally and Joanna’s restaurant is based at 42 Hinckley Road, they opened for business on 4th February and, of course, their gin is 42% ABV. It was meant to be!
