Anno Distillers Limited is the first distillery in Kent for over 200 years. We produce a range of multi-award winning spirits, which have gained both national and international recognition for their quality. We are particularly proud of winning a Gold Medal with Anno Kent Dry Gin at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Based in the village of Marden, we lovingly distil our gins, vodkas and whisky in our 300-litre copper-pot still, affectionately name ‘Patience’. Since the launch of our first product, Anno Kent Dry Gin, in 2013 sales have increased significantly year on year. We are further expanding our production team and now seek an outstanding individual to train in all aspects of the manufacture and distribution of our product range.
Marden train station is a 5 minute walk from the distillery.
