Anno Bluewater Shop
Oct - Dec 2018. Our Bluewater shop, complete with blending experiences, where you could take home your blend in a personalised bottle with a goodie bag.
Our pop-up shop, which won a Highly Commended in the 2019 Revo Opal Awards and also winner of national Short Term Retailer of the Year at the Sceptre Awards 2019, was open from the start of October till 30 December 2018. Managers Ian and Sherry with their team greeted you and answered any questions you might have. You learned about our Kent distillery and the gins and other spirits that we make. Did you see the helpful posters up in the shop, so you could read about the processes involved in making our drinks?
You could find all sorts of gift ideas on offer, including: boxes of our miniature 50ml bottles, in all sorts of varieties or made to your requirements. 70cl bottles of all our spirits, accessories, jute bags, and lots more.
The other really exciting news is that our Anno blending experiences debuted at the shop, before coming to the Marden distillery in summer 2019. Book your session for yourself, a group or buy them as a gift voucher. The experience involves a tutored introduction to how gin is made, tasting and sampling base spirits and flavours, learning about the history and processes involved. You then blend your very own bottle of gin, complete with customised label, to take home with you. It also comes complete with a goodie bag and certificate, to say that you're an Anno alchemist. You'll be able to keep a record in your supplied blending notebook, if you want to reorder your blend in future, direct from the Anno distillery.
If you'd like to learn more about Anno or you've visited the distillery, shop or had a blending experience of your own, then you can find us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to share your photos with the hashtag #AnnoBlends.
