Welcome

Welcome to Gilli’s Gin Tin. We are a business partnership of three young professionals blending their talents together to provide incredible food and drink experiences

Don’t worry, we’re strong believers in being able to have your cake and drink gin too, so you can still order a gin to come with your treats from the store.

Our story

It has long been said that when God was handing out chins, Gilli thought he had said ‘Gins’ and asked for a double!

Gilli always had a bottle of Gin next to the kettle, Gordons or Bombay Sapphire were the regulars in the early days but a passion for a good gin and tonic shouldn’t be mistaken for a drinking problem. That was until her 60th birthday when Gilli realised there had been a problem with what she had been drinking. After a trip to the Feather’s in Woodstock – at the time boasting the world record for different gins – Gilli vowed to never drink a ‘normal’ gin ever again.

New brands and botanicals, infusions of flavour, and gins from around the world inspired her son Lee Cowell to create the beautiful Gilli’s Gin Tin we have today! After three years of exciting festivals, weddings and an appearance on ITV’s This Morning, Lee made the hard decision that his wedding and events company was taking up the majority of his time, whilst Gilli deserved to be out every weekend at every festival serving amazing gins up and down the land.

Up stepped the trio of Emma Walker, Libby Bagley and Danny Drewery in January 2020 and became the proud new owners of Gilli’s. Upon Emma’s completion of her QCF Level 3 Patisserie Diploma, we launched our ‘in-tin’ bakery – MoodyMare Patisserie – as a home delivery service to run alongside Gilli’s. Look out for us at Food Festivals and events all around Yorkshire and the north of England for plenty of gin-themed treats!

We hope you enjoy Gilli’s Gin Tin as much as we have bringing it to you.

Trick or Treat with a Twist – Halloween 2020

Who loves Autumn? Warm drinks, snuggly oversized jumpers that hide all the cakes we’ve been eating and scarfs, many women will relate to the scarf obsession. Personally, I am a Summer girl, but I do have a soft spot for Autumn, and more recently, Halloween. Growing...

Towing the line

“I’m just here to teach you how to pass your test, you don’t learn how to drive until you’re out there on your own.” My tale of learning to drive was never one to brag about as a teenager: I had the advantage of having grown up at a mechanics garage and my driving...

Baking Mad

Baking for me started out being the best weekend hobby, mainly because when you finished making the cakes you could lick the bowl clean! It was something that would keep me entertained on my days off and my family enjoyed the peace and quiet as much as they did the...
