The Anglo-Saxon word Wyrd (pronounced weird) was the term used to describe the deep sense of personal destiny and connectivity to all those events and experiences around us, whether through fortune, fate or chance.  Making our own spirits has always been our dream, so ‘Wyrd’ captures our journey perfectly!



Mark trained as a chemist and spent 30 years working in the food and drink industry, so he knows a thing or two about blending flavours to create the perfect product.  With a Masters in Chemistry and a Chartered Chemist and Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, his background has given him the perfect start for his distilling journey.  Pair his scientific knowledge with his skill for balancing flavours, passion for gin and love of the New Forest and that’s where the magic happens.

Mark doesn’t do things by halves, he even came top of his class and won a scholarship from the Worshipful Company of Distillers for his Wine and Spirit Education Trust exam results!  As their distillery goes from strength to strength, Mark hopes to win more awards and accolades as he builds the Wyrd spirits range.
