about us

A rtisan Blending is a husband and wife team, Quentin and Sara Neville in Northamptonshire England.

Together they helped relaunch Phipps Northampton Brewery over 15 years ago with Quentin's brother Alaric                            (

Quentin's stronger passion was for Mixology and Gin, so he created and continues to distill a range of Phipps Craft Gins. Our Gins & Liquuers have been widely praised as well balanced and interesting.

Wanting to develop their passion for all things Gin, Quentin and Sara founded Artisan Blending in 2015 to develop truly special craft drinks.
