BH1 Gin is a Bournemouth-based spirits brand run by two local bartenders. It all started 5 years ago when Przemek discovered that rather than vodka he much preferred gin, however as Przemek is Polish, this is almost forbidden! To continue his clandestine affair with gin, he started a new challenge at the Chewton Glen Hotel where he had the opportunity to work with the world’s best liquors. Together with the team at Chewton Glen, he started to redistill all sorts of alcohol finding a new passion in this a desire to create his own gin.
Realising that there's over 600 different gins available in the UK, Przemek knew that the recipe would need to be unique. Przemek met Lewis in 2017, who after 12 years in the hospitality industry running hotels and restaurants, had desire to create something new and exciting for his bar’s shelves. Together the two started developing a recipe and after months and months and countless distillation attempts, they found that they had created an outstanding Gin.
All good stories have a bar in there somewhere! Przemek and Lewis spent quite some time in bars in Bournemouth discussing the product and their dream. When asking the bar tender what’s the postcode for their taxi home they said “BH1” it was at that time they had decided on a name for their Gin.
Since its launch, BH1 Gin has topped all other Dorset gins and has been named as one of the best Drinks Products in Dorset. Don’t just take our word for it, you can taste our award winning gins by ordering a bottle or two from our website.
We like to describe BH1 Gin as savoury with tiny sweet note finish which makes it the perfect gin for martinis as well as G&T’s, being served with slice of orange and a Thyme sprig.
