Our story

First Gin From First Town

The distillery is located in a charming little red cabin right in front of Wenngarn Castle, just outside the first town in Sweden, Sigtuna. After a thousand years of history, from the first king to the first saint and the first coin, First Distillery has created First Gin!

As early as the 19th century, the cabin was used as a distillery, where the servants at the castle received part of their salary in booze. In the 20th century, when Wenngarn's glory days were over, the area paradoxically functioned as an institution to help those struggling with alcoholism. Over the past 10 years, Wenngarn has transformed into a thriving modern community with cafes, shops and restaurants. A perfect day trip between Stockholm and Uppsala. 


In the heart of this historic place, First Distillery Sigtuna produces world-class gin. With a passion for craftsmanship and a desire to honor the past, we use organic ingredients and traditional methods of distillation when creating our gin.
