"With the sheep's eye and the lickerish tooth"
Guys and Dolls - meaning 'to desire'
The Lickerish Tooth* started in 2014, and was born from the minds of two drunk men who wanted to create something different to what was on the market.
They didn't want a distillery that was like any others.
They didn't want drinks that tasted, or looked like the others already out there.
It was going to be different and unique.
Above all, it had to be strange.
Our distillery is based in Lythe, North Yorkshire.
We moved in in September 2019, and began an extensive amount of renovation work.
The building had previously been used as a metalworks, and was absolutely filthy!
We worked hard over a period of three months, to fully renovate the building to make it suitable for making gin! This included installing two new stills, and some mini stills for our up and coming gin school.
