Drapers England was born from the heritage of its founders who started their craft in traditional bespoke tailoring and garment making. The family-owned, bespoke tailoring boutique holds a unique and intriguing secret – by day, they create beautiful bespoke garments worn by a discerning clientele.
By night, the studio space flips into a hidden speakeasy. Behind the changing room curtain, you'll find an energetic buzz from a packed room, serving the finest cocktails and an independent spirit collection. Live jazz sets the mood, whilst ice cubes clinking in glasses filled with Drapers Pink Gin or Smoked Oak and Vanilla Spiced Rum. The sweet alluring sound of the saxophone fills the room as the secret jazz club plays into the night.
Drawing influence from the roaring 1920s speakeasy culture and the family history steeped in the art of fine bespoke tailoring, 'The Makers' Jamila Juma-Ware and Matthew Wignall have designed a luxury spirit range which mirrors their passion. The botanical pattern of each distillation reflects their cultural heritage - from the spices and rich flavours of Western Africa and North American-inspired smoke to the seasonal fruits of Sicily, rounded off with botanicals rooted in the heart of Yorkshire, where the collection is distilled and bottled.
Features and Benefits
Each bottle is carefully crafted to excite the senses, an unexpected marriage of ingredients, four times distilled to produce the taste of pure silk.
Attention to detail runs through every thread of these exciting distillations. The beautiful bottle and its label takes influence from a classic jacket lapel, etched onto the strong shoulders of each bottle, illustrating a tailor's muse. The bold patterns draw inspiration from the latest fabric trends, whilst their label is carefully printed on embossed Savile Row tweed paper.
From hand-stitched garment construction to The Maker's hidden speakeasy - Drapers England produce fun and intriguing bespoke tailored spirits, the perfect measure of eye-catching design and exceptional taste.
