A rtisan Blending is a husband and wife team, Quentin and Sara Neville in Northamptonshire England.
Together they helped relaunch Phipps Northampton Brewery over 10 years ago with Quentin's brother Alaric (www.phipps-nbc.co.uk).
Quentin's stronger passion was for Mixology and Gin, so he created and continues to distill a range of Phipps Craft Gins. Our Gins 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.
Firstly we macerate the individual botanicals for several months in high percentage neutral alcohol.
Extracting the liquid to finally pressing the remaining botanicals to further release the "hearts " of intense aromas and flavours.
All solids and residues are filtered to 5 microns.
Each batch to ensure consistency before it is blended together to create our different receipes.
Only when we are happy with the taste do we hand bottle and label.
Using a variety of distillation methods we create our Gin Vida range using 96% neutral organic alcohol, macerating the botanicals and filteration in a true craft products.

All our products come from our own experiences and influences from time spent working in New York and leisure time in France, Spain, Italy, China and other Countries.
Spain, (Valencia region especially) is one of our greatest influences with fennel, lemons, oranges, grapefruit, almonds, tangerines, hibiscous and pink pepper corns all hand picked by us and prepared for use in our products.
