Anno Orange and Honey Gin
Delivering a bold citrus burst, Anno Orange & Honey Gin infuses zingy orange zest and locally sourced honey with subtle spices, ginger and nutmeg to create the refreshing taste that awakens your palate. While enjoying your Anno Orange & Honey Gin drink, reflect on the important role bees played in the development of ingredients that tingle your taste buds. Bees are vital to our ecosystem, especially here in Kent - the “Garden of England”. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Bee Friendly Trust to support their mission to create habitats for honey bees and all pollinators to thrive. Knowing that Anno are making a donation per bottle sold should make your drink taste just that bit sweeter.

Long and sweet, with woody notes, juniper, and spices which linger tenderly on the palate

Sweet Orange Zest
Sweet orange zest is the outer orange peel, packed with essential oil it contains the aroma and flavour, bringing characteristics of freshly squeezed oranges.
Orange Blossom
Orange blossom is the fragrant flower of the orange tree. Similar in aroma and flavour to the fruit but with a more subtle and floral citrus flavour.
Raw Honey
Pure raw honey is the only unprocessed sweetener found in nature, it adds to the mouthfeel and gives character, natural sweetness and often a mildly floral flavour.
Bee Pollen
Also known as bee bread or ambrosia, bee pollens are small pellets of tighly packed flower pollen mixed with nectar. The content varies depending on the flowers visited by the worker honeybees. It is thought to be packed with vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other goodness. This is then infused to add more floral sweet flavour to the gin.
Juniper Berries
These bluish purple berries are the basis and therefore the signature of all gins, and the prominent flavour in traditional gins. Although it has a berry-like appearance due to its fleshy skin, the juniper berry is not actually a true berry but a female seed cone from a conifer. Juniper berries have a strong and assertive pine flavour; the flavour is mostly woody, but it can have some slightly citrus and floral tones to it.
Coriander Seeds
Coriander is the second most common ingredient in gin.  Although all parts of the plant are edible; the fruit or dry coriander seeds only a few millimetres in size are the part we use as a spice to flavour Anno gin.  When distilled the seeds have a warm, spicy, nutty flavour that can also combine citrus and orange notes.
Considered one of the 50 fundamental herbs in Chinese medicine Cassia is often used as an alternative to cinnamon, which is in the same family and genus. This often leads to confusion between the two botanicals in both taste and texture. Cassia bark adds a strong cinnamon style flavour with an extra peppery punch.
Nutmeg brings a complex, sweet and seasonal flavour which compliments and enhances the fresh orange taste.
Ginger when distilled adds sweet autumnal notes, complimenting the spicy orange and adding extra depth and complexity.
Rose Hips
Rose hips are the fruit of the rose plant and form after successful pollination of the flowers. They have many uses in food, for ornamental value and in medicines due to their high vitamin C content. They have a delightfully light, sweet flavour and can be found in the Kent countryside.
Orris Root
The orris root is the rhizome (mass of roots) of the iris flower. Once important in herbal medicine, orris root is more commonly used in the manufacture of perfumes for its scent which is reminiscent of violets. It has a heavy flowery and woody flavour that helps bind the other components in the gin together.
Although thought similar in taste to star anise and fennel, the liquorice plant is unrelated as it is actually a legume associated to the family of beans and peas. The name liquorice was derived from the Greek word meaning sweet root, descriptive of its long lasting, mellow, sweet, woody flavour.
