Hailing from the luscious green countryside of Kent, ‘The Garden of England’, Anno Distillers produce some of the finest gins and spirits to emerge from the county. In fact, they were the first to distil gin in the county in over 200 years, continuing the proud traditions once applied by its spirit-loving ancestors. Founded in 2011, and after much scientific endeavour, they released their signature Kent Dry Gin into the marketplace to much acclaim in 2013. It is truley inspired by it's provenence, with Kentish Hops, Lavender and Samphire from the local area making up some of the 16 botanicals. Anno Distillers have now recieved over 20 awards and accolades for their products.
The co-founders of Anno Distillers, are PhD research and development chemists Andy and Norman. Having previously worked together for over ten years they have developed a firm friendship based on mutual trust. Their understanding and admiration of one another’s ethos and work ethic led to our decision to create a new company. In 2011 they took the opportunity to follow their dreams and leave behind over 60 years combined experience working in industry and make a dramatic career change. Unlike many distillers, their life-long science background in the highly technical pharmaceutical industry gives a practical understanding of the equipment capabilities, allowing Anno to make the highest quality products. They utilise their skills to craft products designed for your pleasure.
Anno Distillers now have a range of 5 spirits for you to enjoy - including a sloe gin, an over-proof gin and a flavoured vodka - all avaiulable in 70cl and 5cl bottles. We will have our seasonal Cranberry + Gin available to try and buy as well as our ever popular gift sets!
