Dr Eamers’ Emporium was founded by Jordan Lunn, Managing Director, in 2017 after years of producing spirits for his family and friends at home. The business grew larger and Jordan invited his mother and sister to be part of the company full-time to keep up with the growing demand.
The company opened its first Gin distillery bar during October 2019 at a property based along the Waterfront in Brierley Hill, Dudley.
