Our founders, Lukas and Vincent, moved from Cologne, Germany to Newcastle upon Tyne, England in September 2015. They first met at St. James’ Park, well-known Newcastle United football stadium. Ever since, they see Newcastle as their second home, calling themselves ‘Geordies by choice’.

The British tea tradition and the enjoyment of craft spirits inspired them to combine two Brits’ favourite drinks: alcohol and tea. And the rest is history…

Tea & Gin Composition

Upon its return from Asia, a ship of British merchants became trapped in a violent storm. Down in the hull, chests of black tea leaves crashed into oak casks filled with the finest Sicilian bergamot oil. Enchanted by the zesty twist, and believing in this novel tea blend, Sir Charles Grey transformed British tea culture – offering us a gift from days long gone.
