“Bullards is a name that is syn­ony­mous with the brew­ing her­itage of Nor­wich which be­gan at the An­chor Brew­ery in 1837. We were de­lighted to be able to res­ur­rect the brand across a range of cask craft beers in 2015 and then start pro­duc­ing hand-crafted Gins at the first Gin Dis­tillery in Nor­wich for over 150 years in 2016. We were awarded best UK Mi­crodis­tillery 2016 and 2017 and best Lon­don Dry Gin in the World 2017.

“As Bullards is a brand that is over 180 years old we are very for­tu­nate to have an amaz­ing his­tory and story to tell re­gard­ing our brew­ing her­itage. How­ever when it comes to gin we are a rel­a­tive new­comer to the sec­tor so un­der­stand the chal­lenges and ex­cite­ment of start­ing the jour­ney to suc­cess. We are keen to see what what new ini­tia­tives are be­ing de­vel­oped lo­cally, share ex­pe­ri­ences and hope­fully help en­trants achieve their goals.

“As Bullards is firmly rooted in the his­tory of Nor­folk it has been our in­ten­tion to cre­ate re­la­tion­ships with other great Nor­folk in­sti­tu­tions. We have just signed a three-year deal to be Nor­wich City Foot­ball Club’s of­fi­cial gin part­ner, we will be at­tend­ing the Royal Nor­folk Show with a Bullards Gin Bar, are proud to be an EDP ‘Fu­ture 50’ com­pany and spon­sor­ing Best New­comer in Eat Nor­folk Food and Drink awards seemed to fit in well with all these ini­tia­tives.”
