Blue Monkey was born on the border of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire in 2008. In 2010 we built a lovely shiny new brewery in Giltbrook, where we can produce 40,000 pints of beer a week. This might sound like a lot, but compared with the big breweries we are a small fish.

We brew more than a dozen different types of beer including: Pale Ales, Stouts, Dark Ruby Ales and Black IPAs. We also have a wonderful range of luscious fruit gins, all based on our classic London Dry.

We like to think we’re big enough though to guarantee quality and consistency,  whilst still small enough to remain a tight knit team of beer enthusiasts, who are fortunate enough to be able to brew the beers we love. Meet The Team>


One of the world’s best-loved spirits, Blue Monkey has created a handcrafted Gin collection so enticing, it’s impossible to resist.

We have carefully blended a selection of botanicals to create flavours for all tastes, from Rhubarb and Custard to Mango and Passionfruit and not forgetting our amazing Blue to Violet, which changes colour when you add your mixer.

We have a delicious liqueur available, Chocolate and Amaretto, Choc lovers this ones for you!

All our gins are available in your nearest Organ Grinder Pub, from our brewery shop and many other UK outlets.
