WhataHoot is a multi-award award-winning distillery in the heart of historic King’s Lynn.
Owned and run by husband-and-wife team Jason and Nicky Crown WhataHoot offers a range of locally-inspired gins and vodkas, including Signature Dry Gin, which features the local flavours of Norfolk samphire and lavender. They also produce Tawny Orange Gin, Navy Strength Gin and Signature V Vodka. In addition, they have a tempting selection of gin-related products, including their unique HootFruit (the garnish game changer!); dried orange, lemon, lime, strawberry, raspberry and blueberry.
The WhataHoot Distillery is a 17th-century warehouse, packed full of original features including original beams and exposed brickwork, which has been sympathetically restored and converted to create a home for WhataHoot. Located just off King Street, as well as being the hub of production for WhataHoot products, the distillery houses the ground floor ‘Pantry’ which is open daily for supplies of WhataHoot products and the bespoke Gin School and Spirit Lounge where visitors can experiment and make their own gins. In addition, the distillery is available for private hire – perfect for events of any kind, including meetings and drinks receptions.
As for the name … WhataHoot was inspired by Jason Nicky’s life-long love of the barn owls which inhabit the skies in Norfolk, so they took the owl’s calling card as the calling card for the company.
