The Village Spirit Collective produce unique craft spirits with the community and gathers together local “Ginfluencers®” to create a drink which reflects the nature of the area – a true Community Spirit.
Their first product Vann Lane Gin, developed with their Hambledon Ginfluencers, has lots of classic juniper on the nose, giving way to warm coriander and sweet orange, fresh kaffir lime and unexpected notes of cardamom and cubeb pepper on the finish. This is a classic London Dry with a thoroughly modern twist. Traditional but contemporary. Just like the village.
Their Haslemere Ginfluencers explored twenty individual botanicals and unique combinations to create the flavour profile of their second Community Spirit, Haslemere Gin. Classic juniper and coriander enhanced with zesty lemon, fragrant elderflower and a subtle hint of warming ginger, cubeb pepper, liquorice and cassia.
They use a vapour infusion process in our micro-distillery which features a bespoke state of the art copper column still. This method of gin production is certainly not the fastest but they believe it results in more subtle and nuanced flavours.

"It’s a brilliant idea for the local community and a great way to support local independent businesses. We love The Mustcard."Van Glue Beauty, Midhurst
"A fantastic opportunity for local businesses and customers alike! I use The Mustcard for both of my Fernhurst based businesses and we have a lot of very happy customers!"Banyan, Fernhurst
"Such a fantastic scheme. As a business we have an offer on with the Mustcard which has given us a platform to reach more local customers. But more than that I have been personally using my card to shop locally in Haslemere and Midhurst. Some of the discounts are brilliant. The best part for me is the fabulous write ups on local shops and pubs that I otherwise would not have known about! We have visited so many new places because of the Mustcard, it has opened up our local area. I love scrolling through the business listings and exploring all the new places! Supporting the local independents, what could be better than that! Thank you Mustcard."May and Grace Bridal, Haslemere
"I don't know how i lived before this card came about! The Value for money is unmatched! After 1-2 uses, you have made your money back and then you have the rest of the year to save? Um, yes please! It's not just the value for money. It's the inspiration. I find myself quite frequently going onto the website to find places for me an my girlfriend to visit! so yeah, its a no-brainer. Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to a Mustcard. The bigger this gets, the more we all benefit."Luke Cullis
"What an incredible opportunity for local people and businesses alike! We love the sense of community it bring to everyone."The Kings Arms, Fernhurst
“I’m looking forward to being able to try new places that offer a discount. A little change from the usual chains.”Narinder Kaur
"It's a no brainer! Tailor it to suit your business and it doesn't cost you a bean. We've already had business from it as a result."Woodie and Morris, Haslemere
In today’s fast changing world the things we value are shifting equally as fast. The move away from chain style shops and departments stores to online ordering for example. Within this the Independent shops have become the marker, not only for defining our towns, by giving them identity and individuality, but by increasing the sense of community. Supporting Independent small and family businesses keeps our towns alive. The Mustcard is a superb, affordable way for us to say ‘YES, we are in. YES we value and support our town’s individuality, it’s personality and it’s people’. The additional twist is that, in so doing, these amazing shops and their owners reward Mustcard Members with special discounts!! It’s a true win win!My Midhurst Life
