Jon Chadwick, founder of Durham Distillery
Jon Chadwick’s Durham Distillery was inspired by a tour around the USA. Formerly working for the Department of Health, Jon was made redundant and decided to travel the East Coast.
Moved by the new wave of small batch craft distilleries, he decided to set one up in his home county of Durham – and Durham Distillery was born.
Cue Jess Tomlinson, who joined Jon as head distiller – one of a very few females in the role. A master in chemistry, Jess has worked with Jon to develop the flavour profiles of Durham Vodka.
Triple distilled and slow filtered in small batches, the vodka is clean and smooth with a hint of vanilla sweetness.
