Hello and Welcome!

When we opened our small High Street shop in 2017, we had a passion for two things - craft gins and great chocolates. So we set about establishing what we knew other people like us would love...


“A grown ups treat shop”


And so The Christchurch Confectioner and Gin Shop was born and we were determined we would offer our customers amazing treats and tipples that can only be produced by passionate and dedicated small batch artisans.


We’ve worked tirelessly to find the very best small batch craft gins from across the South Coast and beyond. We like to build a real rapport with our distillers and love to visit them and hear what fantastic new spirits they have planned. Due to High Street decline and Covid 19, in January 2021 we vacated our shop and have taken our business exclusively online. 


We’re also building up a huge library of videos on our YouTube channel GIN OPINION where you can view our distillery visits and interviews with the distillers, so please have a look. 


For all of you chocoholics out there, we have a mouth watering range of luxury chocolates from one of the UK's top chocolate importers. From the finest artisan chocolatiers like Callebaut, Natura Jacali, Pralibel, Visser, Kimberley , Van Collie, Delice, Caluwe and others, we have a huge selection of chocolate delights for gifts, birthdays, special occasions and for treating yourself.
