What is Glastonbury Tor and why is it on our label?
Glastonbury Tor is a natural hill rising to a height of 158M (518 feet) and is topped by the 700 year old tower of St Michael. It is said to be one of the most spiritual sites in the country, steeped in history and legend. It is this mystical tower that features on our label, and the water that rises from beneath the Tor used in our gin. From its summit can be viewed the counties of Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire as well as the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey which is reputed to be the final resting place of King Arthur. Legend tells us that Joseph of Arimathea visited Glastonbury and buried the Holy Grail just below the Tor. The famous Glastonbury Festival is held in the village of Pilton a few miles away and the Tor can clearly be seen from the site. Natural spring water rises from deep beneath the Tor and it is from this that Spirit of Glastonbury gin is made
