More than 1000 years ago, Northumbria was the most powerful kingdom in all England, ruled from the Royal residence of ‘Ad Gefrin’ in the Glendale Valley near Wooler.

This is from where we take our inspiration and the name we have chosen for our new visitor destination and distillery – Ad Gefrin, a royal place of gathering, community and hospitality.

We will breathe new life into old buildings, creating jobs, futures and a stronger community in the process. Creating a new Northumbrian whisky has become our passion – the ‘Spirit of Belonging’ – that we want everyone across North East England and around the world to enjoy.

Everything we create, and everything we do, is born to bring people together. We hope this means Wooler becomes the heart of something very special for decades to come.
