title originates from the famous

Somerset town, Wellington, close to

where Sheppy's produce their premium

cider. Famed for his victory at the Battle

of Waterloo the 'Iron Duke' was also

Silent Pool is a new gin produced with a

unique blend of 24 botanicals, rich and

clean, juniper-driven, with floral layers of

lavender and chamomile. The inspiration

for the gin is a pair of ancient pools located

in the Surrey Hills. Crystal clear and

spring that flows from deep within the

heart of the chalk downs. The waters

artisanal spirit made

using only the finest

local ingredients.
