Weavers Independent Wine & Spirit Merchants


Home of Castle Gate Gin

Weavers is the long standing home to Castle Gate Gin. This Independent Wine and Spirits Merchants was originally a Public House, founded in 1844 by Edward Weaver and subsequently bought by George Trease in 1897; Weavers has been in the Trease family ever since.  

Over the years Weavers has seen many changes to the Nottingham high street. What remains consistent is the Trease family and the focus on bringing the best of wine and spirits to the people of Nottingham.  

For the Trease family and all who work there, No.1 Castle Gate holds plenty of history along with forward-thinking creativity. It is here where Weavers formed and perfected Castle Gate Gin.

The Castle Gate collection takes inspiration from the history of Castle Gate and embrace the unique spirit of Nottingham and its people, including the shire’s famous Robin Hood characters.

These premium, craft spirits are distilled from the finest botanicals, including acorns foraged in Sherwood Forest and the shires of Central England.*

*sustainably sourced and with permission.

The whole team at No.1 Castle Gate are involved in the creation of the spirits so the range truly represents the place where it all started. Distilled in a charming still called ‘Gerard’, the acorns are mainly foraged by Mary Trease and her family. The acorns are then dried, peeled and ground before being added to the other botanicals for maceration prior to distillation.  

When popping down to Weavers you will be welcomed (and encouraged) to try a sample of this delightful range of spirits. If that doesn’t suit, they also have a website where you can purchase your bottle and get it delivered. The spirits are available in 70cl bottles as well as gift packs, making excellent presents for friends or family members. A real gift from Nottingham and the shires!

Tastings: Many of Weavers’ gins, whiskies, liqueurs and other spirits are available for tasting, along with a Saturday wine tasting in the shop. Tasting events take place throughout the year (virtually or in person), check the Weavers website for details.
