Sliver Medal Winning

 

 

Inspired by the terraced gardens of the Warner Edwards Distillery and the beauty of the surrounding Northamptonshire landscape, this garden aims to capture the natural and unconventional spirit of the English countryside. The choice of planting is inspired by the distillery’s botanical gardens and hedgerows and showcases many of the natural flavours used in the creation of its gins.
 
The use of natural materials, including stone, water and copper create an authentic space, and bee-friendly plants and a bee bole set into old stonewalling reflect the farm’s apiary. Other planting includes thyme variations and lemon balm, which are highly aromatic and flavoursome and can be used in garnishing gin. The ‘natural spring’ water feature is highly adaptable to any outdoor space and offers a sense of serenity and relaxation.
