Sky Wave Gin founders and distillers, Rachel Hicks and Andrew Parsons, were always searching for their perfect gin but failing to find it. So they decided to make it. Sky Wave Gin launched in Oxfordshire in 2018 and within two years the Signature London Dry was named The World’s Best Contemporary Gin at the World Gin Awards.
Sky Wave Gin creates its range of seven artisan gins by hand and with passion. Every stage of distillation, bottling and packaging is touched by our distillers, not automated by machines.
The distillery has been awarded 19 international medals and Andrew has been shortlisted for the prestigious title of World’s Best Master Distiller in the Icons of Gin World Gin Awards 2021.
The boutique distillery is housed in a two former tanker sheds and open to the public at the beautiful Bicester Heritage site in Oxfordshire, the home of historic motoring.
Sky Wave Gin has myriad links with the former RAF site, from the 30-year-old Range Rover which Rachel drove across the Sahara in a gumball rally to the very name Sky Wave, which is inextricably linked to the activity at RAF Bicester during the Second World War. If you want to know more then we’d urge you to book a Distillery Experience and Curated Gin Tasting to find out.
