During half term Dover Castle held a regional market hosting food & drink goodies from local producers including, Marshmellow, Fudge and Kent Dark Chocolate.

We of course took part, marking the special occassion by selling our gift sets there, which the Castle dont usually stock. 

We met some wonderful gin-lovers and converted some Gin newbies, the scenery wasn't bad either!

It's full steam ahead now as we look forward to our next event - The Broadstairs Spring Food & Wine Festival taking place over easter weekend from the 15th - 17th April.

 

14/02/2017 - Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day Gin lovers! 

We hope you received all the love and adoration you deserve today. 

A wonderful Anno cocktail for today, in honour of St Valentine is our Cranberry Martini - deliciously fruity with warming spices all with a romantic red hue. 

Simply mix 75ml of Anno Cranberry & Gin with a dash of vermouth. Pop these in a shaker with plenty of ice and then strain. 

We recommend garnishing with a twist of orange peel.

31/01/2017 - Crazy for Cranberries

We had a very exciting delivery to Anno HQ yesterday - Cranberries! And lots of them.

They are going to make 2017's batch of our Seasonal Spiced Cranberry & Gin. This indulgent drink is made with a delicious double infusion of our award winning Kent Dry Gin base, fresh cranberries, and the splendid spiciness of cassia and cloves, which adds an air of aromatics to please multiple senses all at once and leave a mouth-watering long-lasting flavour, that slowly warms you from head to toe. 

But before we get this mouth-watering spirit, we must start with the cranberries. They arrive frozen to ensure they're as fresh from the field as possible, before being transferred manually into handmade muslin bags. These bags are popped in a tank and we add our Kent Dry Gin blend and leave them to infuse for a long while. Once the flavours are perfectly blended we add the spices to achieve that magical, Christmassy flavour. 

If you (like us!) can't wait until Christmas for a sip of our Cranberry & Gin, we have a few bottles still available to buy in 70cl and 5cl bottles. It is equally tasty drunk neat or with a quality tonic, or why not experiment with adding champagne or sparkling wine for a fun fruity fizz.

18/01/2017 - Lights...Camera...Action!

Patience enjoyed a starring role this morning in a film about us!

We were delighted to welcome the wonderful Charlotte Wontner and Will Paice in from Hopscotch Studios into Anno HQ to help create a little film about who we are and what we do.

With the talented Sam Davies behind the camera, Norman, Andy and Kim put their usual roles to one side for the morning in favour of a spot of acting. Even Mike and Jemima got involved, writing out scripts and making some (suprise) on screen appearences. Like a good bottle of Anno gin, these things take time to finish so we’ll keep you posted about when you can see the final product.

Patience is expecting her Oscar nomination anyday now . . .

03/01/2017 - Happy New Year!

A big Happy New Year to you all!

We hope you toasted 2017 in style, perhaps with a Kentish Twinkle in hand!

Here at Anno, we were kept on our toes over the festive period, appearing at many, many different Christmas shows and markets, including The Wealden Times Midwinter Fair, Leeds Castle and The Spirit of Christmas at London's Olympia. We had a great time and really enjoyed meeting everyone who came to see us..

You might have even heard us, we've recently been featured on BBC Radio Kent, or seen us pop up in Inside Kent magazine or read Kent Life's interview with Kim, our fabulous Sales & Marketing Manager. 

But 2017 is here, and so Patience is already busy making lots of lovely Kent Dry, Sloe and Elderflower&Vodka. Her diary is already filling up with guests coming to see her during our Tour and Tutored Tasting evenings. If you haven't booked your tour yet, or have a voucher to redeem then please do get in touch. You can check our latest dates and availability here.

Were very excited to see what 2017 brings!
