Northumbria… This ancient land of myths and legends; bounded by the North Sea and the Pennine Hills, the River Humber and the Firth of Forth created from the Kingdoms of Deria and Bernicia. Invaded by the Roman Legions, who partitioned it with Hadrians Wall; and the Viking Hoards, who sacked and pillaged before settling to farm its wonderful fertile valleys.

This can be a harsh country, wild enough to challenge the strongest souls, but also beautiful with peaks and valleys, coasts and rivers to match anywhere in the world. From such a place, influenced by war and conquest, harsh land and wild weather, come a great number of stories and fables with which the Northumbrian folk entertained, educated and terrified themselves around warm fires on cool evenings. And from these folk stories came the idea for the Northern Fables Collection.


Northern Fables

The Northern Fables Collection will consist of a range of unique full-strength Gins centred around Fables from the ancient kingdom of Northumbria, the first of which is the Laidly Wyrm. The Laidly Wyrm of Spindlestone Heugh is an ancient tale of love, jealousy, deceit, magic and heroism set around the 6th century Bernician stronghold of Bamburgh Castle. Only through the love and heroism of her brother can the beautiful Princess Margaret be freed from the Witch’s enchanment.
