Cricketers Gin is an independent British gin company set up by father and daughter founding partners, David and Rachel. The journey began on a relaxed Sunday afternoon, with a refreshing gin and tonic, watching cricket on Pinkneys Green. Surrounded by the stunning Berkshire countryside, Rachel & David decided that this quintessential British game, along with the wild botanicals growing in abundance, deserved a bespoke gin of its very own.
David has a lifetime of experience in the restaurant industry; having worked with prestigious West End brands, as a Sommelier, owned his own restaurants, and has studied in Beaune, Burgundy and with WSET. Today he is happily enjoying retirement and the launch of Cricketers Gin!
Rachel enjoyed a successful career in Brand and Marketing, before following her dream to become a Primary School Teacher. After teaching for 15 years, Rachel now runs her own tutoring business where she works 1:1 with children struggling with the curriculum. This business has allowed her to spend more time with her own young children, and of course develop the exquisite Cricketers Gin recipe!
Their combined experience, together with a shared love of a gin and tonic, have been the winning combination that has culminated in the creation of an exquisite gin.
