We’re so excited to announce that we’ve appointed HMS Spirits Company as our resident gin! But what do we mean by resident gin? Simples! If you come in and ask for a G&T, this is what we strongly recommend, unless you specify that you’d prefer one of our alternatives (e.g. Bombay, Tanqueray, Winchester Dry etc).

The HMS Spirits range includes 3 premium gins including the Mary Rose, Elizabeth and Dreadnought

HMS Spirits is an independent gin provider based in Southampton that has grown from strength to strength even through the difficult trading conditions of COVID-19. Passionate about gin and routed in a naval family background, founder and owner Ben Maguire has taken his start up distillery all around the world winning a number of awards over the last 12 months.

“Anyone that has met Ben knows just how incredibly passionate he is about HMS Spirits, the quality of the product but also the way people connect with it and the industry needs that enthusiasm and drive now more than ever. We’re looking to create experiences at the pub and ensure we support local providers giving them a platform to engage, entice and entertain all of our customers” says our Director, Adam.

As well as a traditional supply agreement, we have a number of micro-events planned to showcase the HMS brand here at the pub. Over the coming weeks we’ll be announcing a number of events that will offer you a fantastic evening out whilst learning about our gin range and how to use it, all hosted by HMS Spirits very own Ben!

We’re just putting the final details together for the gin events and will send the details out to our mailing list very soon! If you would like to hear about the gin events, as well as everything else that is going on at the Northbrook Arms – you can join our mailing list by clicking this link.
