Face it: Being 15 and starting production on a triple-distilled juniper- and vanilla-nosed gin with your older brother and two sisters, one of whom already works at a bar, is way cooler than any parade of cupcake prodigies and cerebral teen chefs. Such is the life of British teen Digby Elliott-Berry, who grew up around production on the family brewery, was not in fact named by Wes Anderson, and is still very much under the legal drinking age. (“I am a thrill seeker and I look forward to playing a bigger role as soon as possible,” he says.) The four Elliott-Berry kids are 22 and under, and their aptly named Sibling Gin launched in Gloucestershire last week with a huge gin and tonic party. “We want to establish a foundation and from there our long-term goals are very ambitious,” says 18-year-old Cicely, in case you already didn’t get the news.
