About Chase

Chase Distillery was started by William Chase in 2008, with the mission to challenge the status quo in the spirits industry, as pioneers of the first Single-Estate Distillery in Britain.

Why Chase? Well, we grow British Potatoes that we distill into Chase Vodka and then redistill with wild botanicals to make Chase GB Gin. Our family has a passion for farming and we distill from scratch, taking 250 glorious Herefordshire potatoes to make every bottle.

We are now in many of the top bars and retail spaces around the world and have increased our international presence into over 50 countries worldwide; with key territories in the US, Australia, Europe and Asia.

Producing a multi award-winning product doesn’t happen by chance. It takes meticulous dedication, craftsmanship and passion from our people. It’s been an exceptional few years here on the farm and the opportunities for our team and company are more exciting than ever.
