Imbibe - 02/07/2014

We have sore throats from talking so much, but have survived our first trade show for the trade. What a busy couple of days up at Imbibe in London! The halls of Olympia were absolutely packed with bartenders, restaurant owners and sommeliers, all eager to sample what the drinks industry has to offer them and boy were we popular! Gin is definitely the ‘in’ spirit and our bottle got a lot of attention and further excitement ensued when our spirits aromatic nose and smooth taste was sampled. Hope to see lots of new Anno Gin stockists soon smiley

G&T Weather - 30/06/2014

June has been a fabulous month, the sun has been shining and the G&Ts have been flowing nicely. It’s been a hectic month out and about all over the country at shows for the Anno team, but we are definitely feeling the appreciation for our beautiful aromatic Anno Kent Dry Gin. Thanks for all the support and lovely comments, it makes all this hard work feel very worth it.

Times Spirit of the Week - 01/06/2014

We are very proud to announce that Anno Kent Dry Gin has been named Spirit of the Week in The Times newspaper by column author Alice Lascelles!

International Intern - 30/05/2014

For one week only, the Anno Team has been International. Marieke has joined us from the Netherlands - supposedly to improve her English, but her English is already pretty perfect- we think she just wanted to come to this magical place where Anno Gin is created.

As most of us know, gin is often credited with coming from Holland, where the similar juniper spirit 'genever' was produced, which inspired Dutch courage (if you don’t know this then read our history pages), so this was nothing new to Marieke. She’s been a great help around the distillery and we are sorry to see her leave, but wish her all the best back in Holland.

Marden Business Forum Tour - 09/05/2014

Marden is a small, picturesque village in the middle of the Kentish Countryside, but somehow it has a wealth of businesses, including Hush Heath winery, Turners Cider, Tomkinson, Claygate, English National Opera and Ballet Staging Warehouse and of course the Kent Air Ambulance!

Last night we opened the distillery to the Marden Business Forum to get to know all of our lovely neighbours and what a pleasurable evening it turned out to be. We love our location and it was fantastic to meet all the friendly people that work here too.
