UK: Thrill for Chase as distillery list grows at Shropshire border farm

William Chase came up with a way to turn King Edwards and Lady Claires into a world-class single-estate spirit. And not content with beating the Russians and Polish at their own game, the farmer-turned-entrepreneur branched out into squeezing gin from cider apples. Now his Williams Chase Elegant Gin is reportedly a favourite with Prince Charles. “To make our vodka, we harvest our potatoes and destone and demud them,” William said. “Then we peel them. William ensures that his potatoes are peeled as there is no starch value on the outside. Then we smash them through a mill then boil them in a big pan and then we ferment them. We get them all in a tank and add a brewer’s yeast and that leaves us with our raw spirit.”
