Continuing with showcasing our fabulous local suppliers attending the CSPA's Artisan Tasting Evening on Friday 19th November.
Today we feature Anno Distillers www.annodistillers.co.uk
Anno was founded in 2011 by Dr Andy Reason and Dr Norman Lewis who left behind their roles as scientists to pursue their passion for craft spirits and open Kent's first gin distillery in 200 years. Started in Maidstone, Marden is where the magic now happens.
As a celebration of the seemingly endless waiting in the early days, Andy and Norman adorned their beloved 300-litre copper pot still with the name ‘Patience’ as a tribute to those challenging times.
Patience stands proudly as the centrepiece at the distillery, gleaming in all her copper beauty and every one of Anno’s delicious spirits is still made in her to this day.
Since those early days, they’ve continued apace to accumulate much praise from both fans and experts alike, culminating outstanding recognition at various awards, including Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Awards.
So how have they achieved such success? Unlike many distillers, the founders’ life-long science background gives them a practical understanding of the equipment capabilities, allowing them to make the highest quality products.
Come and try some of Anno Distillers' gin at the Artisan Tasting evening, purchase some to drink on the night and place your order for pre-Christmas delivery.
