About Us

Our Story

The inception of Jance is a tale of passion, vision, and a deep-rooted love for whiskey. It's a journey that began as a shared dream between two brothers, James and Lance, who were not just siblings but also ardent whiskey enthusiasts. Their path to creating Jance was fuelled by a desire to craft something truly their own, a signature spirit that would stand as a testament to their dedication and love for distillery.

Their 'Aha' moment arrived with the creation of their unique Honey Spirit. This innovative spirit became a cornerstone for Jance, embodying their commitment to quality and creativity. It was more than just a new product; it was a symbol of their journey from dreamers to creators.

The Distillery

At the heart of Jance is our state-of-the-art distillery, a testament to innovation and flexibility. Our custom-built, highly modified system is the result of years of research and development, coupled with our extensive experience as passionate spirit connoisseurs. This unique setup allows us the versatility to engage in both pot and column distillation, essential for crafting our wide array of distinctive spirits. From the robust flavours of our Whisky to the unique character of our Honey Spirit, each drop reflects our commitment to excellence.

Why Jance?

The name 'Jance' is a amalgamation of 'James' and 'Lance'. While 'Lames' didn't quite capture the essence we were looking for, 'Jance' resonated with our vision. It’s not just a name; it’s a representation of our collaboration, creativity, and shared heritage.

Our Commitment to Quality and Sustainability

At Jance, we take pride in our commitment to supporting local and independent suppliers, a choice that stems not only from our desire to contribute to the community but also from the superior quality these partnerships yield. A prime example is our Honey, sourced directly from local farms, which plays a pivotal role in the unique flavour profiles of our spirits, especially our Honey Spirit and Liqueur.

Sustainability is at the core of our operations. We've implemented eco-friendly practices such as repurposing our organic waste as feed for local farmers and employing heat recovery technologies to save power and water. These practices reflect our dedication to environmental stewardship and our responsibility towards the community.

Looking Ahead

Our future is as exciting as our spirits. We're gearing up to unveil a top-shelf Whisky, a culmination of our expertise, passion, and the high standards we've set at Jance. This upcoming release is not just a new product; it's a celebration of our journey and a toast to what lies ahead.

Join us in this journey of discovery, craftsmanship, and excellence at Jance, where every spirit tells a story.
