Anno Distillers

About Us

We are Anno Distillers, the first micro distillery in Kent and the first to start distilling gin in the county for over 200 years. Our first product is Anno Kent Dry Gin a super smooth, ultra-premium spirit with a Kentish twist.

At Anno Distillers, we use our scientific backgrounds, inventive skills and the spirit of alchemy to produce outstanding handcrafted spirits. This fusion of science and nature results in an artisanal gin that is exceptionally smooth and bursting with complex flavours.

Being based in the Garden of England there are many amazing botanicals of Kentish origin to choose from. We marry traditional gin botanicals such as juniper, coriander and cassia, with a special blend of aromatic Kentish hops with carefully chosen local lavender from the Downderry Nursery, elderflower, rose hips and samphire from the Historic Romney Marsh. These flavours are enhanced by fresh lemon, kaffir lime leaves, bitter orange and camomile. The botanicals together with English grain spirit are distilled in Patience, our beautiful 300L copper pot-still, to create Anno Kent Dry Gin for your drinking pleasure.

Anno Gin can be drunk neat, as a traditional G&T or in a cocktail. However you like to drink it we recommend garnishing with a large sprig of samphire for optimum enjoyment.

Anno Gin can be brought directly from the Anno website or from one of our increasing list of stockists around Kent. Please see for more details and a list of stockists.
