The Scientists Behind the Science

The scientists behind the science: Andy, Kim & Norman


Andrew ReasonAndy

Company founder & co-director

Andy developed a passion for science as a small boy.  He went on to spend over 30 years working in the pharmaceutical industry, but having climbed the career ladder he secretly longed to get back to hands on experimentation.  A self-confessed perfectionist, his attention to detail makes him a great all-round handyman who enjoys the finer things in life from wine and spirits to a very fast Ultima kit car that he spent two and a half years building.  In his spare time Andy enjoys being with his family woodworking projects in his workshop, as well as target and clay pigeon shooting.



Company founder & co-director

Norman spent a significant number of years working in the pharmaceutical industry, but his sense of scientific curiosity meant that he was not ready to retire...  His pleasures in life include good food, fine wine and malt whisky.  However, he’s never happier than found rambling around the countryside or working on his allotment where he grows many varieties of fruit and veg.  His other hobbies include travelling and photography.  Married with two children, Norman enjoys relaxing in the company of his loving family.



Kim ReasonKim

The brains behind PR, marketing, sales & social media

Kim studied Biological Sciences at Warwick University and obtained a Masters Degree in Business Management at Warwick Business School.  Kim was away travelling the World and working in Malaysia as a SCUBA diving instructor when Anno Distillers was created, but returned within a couple of months to help with the distillery set up and head up the marketing side of the business.  Kim enjoys playing hockey, cooking and loves a good cocktail (or two).  Following in Andy’s (her father’s) footsteps, she is passionate about using the best ingredients to create the finest flavours.
