In good spirits
Artisan spirits are a booming business. You can visit any or all of Kent’s fascinating distilleries in search of your new favourite tipple
going and, frankly, just a lovely drink. And we’ve recently added a Dockyard Oak Aged Damson Gin.
“Being part of Chatham Maritime and at the site of the former Royal Dockyard has inspired us in so many ways. It was a truly a world-class facility and was a hotbed of innovation and craft. That’s partly why we designed and made our still ourselves with local craftsmen; why we decided we must create our own spirit rather than buying it wholesale; and why we decided to go further than almost any other distillery and grow our grain in partnership with local farmers.
“Our distillery tour is a top-rated experience on TripAdvisor. As part of the tour there’s a spirit tasting and, of course, a gin and tonic in our cosy bar. The only tip is to plan your visit – our tours are often booked up a month in advance.” www.copperrivetdistillery.com
