As the sun shines on the rolling green hills of the Kentish countryside, we take a moment to be grateful that we get to live in such a lush landscape.

June really does bring the Garden of England to life, and we love sitting back and soaking in the scenery on a warm June weekend. What better way to celebrate the Garden of England than by enjoying our refreshing Kentish Garden cocktail, featuring Ranscombe Wild Small Batch Gin, made only with locally-foraged botanicals?
