Graham Taylor is the owner and founder of Crafty Distillery. Prior to setting up the business he had a 15 year career in the branding and design industry, developing new brands and ideas for companies all over the world.

After a drunken but fruitful conversation in the pub, and after months of research, he decided to switch careers after seeing the exciting rise of the craft spirits market. Over the course of 3 years, and alongside the help of his father Billy and life-long friend Craig Rankin Crafty Distillery was born.

Setting up the business in his hometown of Newton Stewart in Galloway was an easy decision to make when you consider it’s natural beauty and the vibrant larder of local botanicals and fantastic grain available. 

Graham's masterclass will detail the story behind Hills & Harbour Gin and Crafty Distillery, as well as offering his favourite serving suggestions and pairings.
