About Us

Who we are...


Shorty is the founder, compounder and mixologist at Shorty's Gins. Creating fruit infused gins, made the old fashioned way. From humble beginnings making Sloe Gin for family and friends for Christmas, Shorty began experimenting with other fruits. In addition we have our own Sweet Violet Gin, Peppermint Gin and the stand alone beauty known as Endeavour Gin. We are working on an additional website for that. Shorty believes she has the best job in the world.

What we do...


We create stunningly tasty fruit infused and select botanicals gins using nature's finest ingredients. Please be patient as it takes 2-3 weeks to create, infuse and bottle our gins. The only gin we use artificial colour and flavour in is the Sweet Violet Gin.  Each and every bottle of Shorty's, and of course Endeavour Gin, guarantees a five sensory hit...

1 - Visually stunning

2 - Curvy and dimpled bottle

3 - The sound of the cork popping

4 - The scent of fruits and botanicals

5 - Last but by no means least, the taste of nature in a glass
