The History of Leggets
The business began as an ostrich farm in Cheshire in 1999 and has developed into a covetable luxury brand. Still based in the rolling hills of Cheshire and specialising in, among other things, superb English bridle leatherwork, Leggets makes shooting, hunting and sporting goods from the ostrich hides it originally farmed. The skins were tanned in Manchester and the exquisite final results – in the form of luxurious gun slips, satchels, music folios and more – were shipped to craft lovers all over the world.

Leggets X Nick Hammond
In September 2019, the Directors of Leggets were actively looking for new avenues of interest and products to bring to their discerning clients; and along came Nick Hammond and Around The World In 80 Cigars. The seed of an idea was born.
The first flower from that seed is the Oriental Cigar Gin, devised and blended by Hammond in collaboration with Leggets, it is an amalgamation of experiences and emotions reflective of Hammond’s book; each bottle carries a quote from the manuscript and reflects the tone, style and flavour of this cigar-flavoured travelogue to some of the world’s most unusual, exotic and remarkable places.
