A fourth-generation dairy farming family from Lancashire have won a prestigious national award for the gin distillery they have created.
Rob and Lizzie Billington, from Inglewhite, opened the Wild Fox Distillery in 2019 to diversify their farm. It has now been named 'Best Rural Drink Business' at the Rural Business Awards.
We are thrilled to receive this award which highlights the success of the business as well as our care for the environment and passion for British farming. With an inherited love for our surroundings, we strive to embody the heritage of our farm in each bottle.
The couple now plan to open a bigger distillery on their farm alongside a visitor centre and a shop.
