The original distillery was found as a derelict building at the back of the Edge Hill Wine Estate. It was quickly discovered that the distillery used to produce world class spirits in the 1880s and was the 209th registered distillery in the US. Over a century later, Leslie Rudd was inspired to build a distillery and create a new No.209 Gin.
