Marie Claire saysThe Warner Edwards team have unveiled a brand new (and very interesting) gin creation - with the key ingredient being rhubarb from Queen Victorias garden!
This is as the name suggests a wonderfully pure and clean tasting lager, excellent on its own or perfect with chicken or fish.

Above and left: The purchase of the business on the
18th of July 1901
On the 18th July 1901 John Amps purchased the business for the total cost of £500.
In 1901 John had been married for eleven years to Margaret Grimble Neal and they had two sons, John Harold and William Percy. At this point, the population of Oundle was approximated at 2500 and now, over a hundred and ten years later, boasts an estimated population of around 5,800 people - over double that! In 1901, however, the town was host to at least five grocer's shops, fourteen public houses and seven beersellers (home brewed ale to be consumed off the premises).
Our shop at that time would have looked virtually the same outside then as it does today (where it is currently occupied by Tescos), but inside would have been very different indeed, with a large square room across the full width of the front of the building with two other rooms behind the shop for domestic use. The family would have occupied the rooms on the first and second floors and you can still see the bricked up entrance down the side of the building, as you travel to our current shop. The business had one distinctive feature, which was its telephone number - number '2' Above: Mr P.W Amps
