A 2-year journey from initial idea to gin schools, tours and sales is complete – with a fantastic website to showcase the locally run family business
Wrekin Spirit is an exciting new craft Gin distillery set in a converted cart shed in the beautiful Shropshire countryside. At Wrekin Spirit, every batch of Gin they distill is hand crafted with a unique blend of botanicals, giving their Gin an individual character and natural flavours.
A true family run business, Wrekin Spirit (named after the famous Shropshire landmark The Wrekin) is homed on a 4th Generation family run farm with Isabel Moseley as Managing Director, husband Richard as groundsman and chief barman, with eldest son Harvey and twins Fred and Sam all helping run the business.
Whilst perfecting the making of the Gin, and creating the Gin schools and Distillery tours, Isabel knew she wanted a striking state-of-the-art website that could showcase the Gin, and allow customers to both buy the product and book a tour online quickly and easily.
Based on the recommendation of a local business owner, Isabel appointed local website company The Web Orchard. Isabel comments “I strongly believe in keeping business local and also use recommendations of people that I trust, so I didn’t shop around at all. I met with Peter and Simon from The Web Orchard and was impressed from the outset; they were very likable but professional and grasped from the outset what we were seeking to achieve from the website”.
“Between us we made the decision to appoint a professional photographer for the website images and I’m pleased that we did, as the photos on the new website really showcase both the Gin itself but also the Gin school and distillery tours. The Web Orchard have done a great job with the website build and we have basic editing rights so we can make changes to the content, add products or change prices”
“The feedback about our website from customers has been really good and we are pleased to report that sales of both the Gin and the tours are going well, with no issues to report at all. We are very pleased with the end result.”
Peter White, Director of The Web Orchard, adds,
“The Web Orchard were delighted to be chosen to build a brand-new website for a much talked about new local business, and Wrekin Spirit were a pleasure to work with throughout the process. The Gin school is a stunning place to visit and we were really excited to be able to build the website for such a great new endeavor.”
