Tappers Gin

Tappers are a family business from West Kirby that operates from their Distillery in Upton. They independently hand-craft their spirits using the finest natural ingredients to botanical recipes inspired by our British heritage and the natural world around us. Their signature Darkside Gin is inspired by Wirral with coastal botanicals that include locally foraged sea beet. Their range extends to four seasonal expressions and several limited-edition releases including bespoke gins exclusive to local clients including the Royal Liverpool Golf Club. With three international awards under their belt and stockists both national and international, Tappers still remains true to its local connections. During the COVID-19 pandemic, they manufactured and donated 1,000 bottles of hand sanitiser to front line NHS services, care homes and vulnerable individuals based on the Wirral. They provide a Distillery-to-doorstep home delivery service for their Wirral customers, and welcome the public in to their Distillery Tasting Room for gin tastings and other events.

Wirral has so much to offer and, together, our amazing communities and the independent businesses that serve them are stronger. That’s why we’re thrilled to be partners with Independent Wirral, flying the flag for supporting and thinking local!”
