WhataHoot is a multi-award award-winning distillery in the heart of historic King’s Lynn in Norfolk.
Owned and run by husband-and-wife team Jason and Nicky Crown, WhataHoot offers a range of locally-inspired gins and vodkas, including Signature Dry Gin, which features the local flavours of Norfolk samphire and lavender. We also produce Tawny Orange Gin, Navy Strength Gin and Signature V Vodka.
The WhataHoot name was inspired by Jason & Nicky’s life-long love of the barn owls which inhabit the skies in Norfolk
The WhataHoot Distillery is a 16th century warehouse, packed full of original features including original beams and exposed brickwork, which has been sympathetically restored and converted to create a home for WhataHoot.
Located just off King Street, as well as being the hub of production for WhataHoot products, the distillery houses the ground floor 'Pantry' which is open daily for supplies of WhataHoot products and the bespoke Gin School and Spirit Lounge where visitors can experiment and make their own gins.
In addition, the distillery is available for private hire – perfect for events of any kind, including meetings and drinks receptions.
Opportunities and careers information
We're a business with multiple arms, namely the distillery itself for production, our physical and online shop, our bar for people to drop in - and also our experience offerings where customers can take cocktail masterclasses or even make their own gin in the distillery.
As a result, we maintain a passionate, good-humoured and multiskilled team to work across the organisation. Although everyone has their own responsibilities, all our team members need to know and at times help in other areas, so there is plenty of of opportunity to learn new skills and develop.
