People enjoying their Dockyard Gin distillery tour

Kentish grain grown in fields within 20 miles of the distillery’s home in Chatham Dockyard makes Dockyard Gin extra special.

Grains from local farming partner – Burden Bros on the Isle of Sheppey – are delivered at the distillery via a 113-year-old grain barge, the Edith May, on a three-hour voyage from the island to Chatham.

And sourcing produce locally helps the brand control the quality and consistency of every drop. 

A contemporary take on traditional naval gins, Dockyard Gin is certainly unique and makers say: “Crafted through our unique hand-made copper still Janet, we infuse our gin with only the finest botanicals sourced from across the globe. Dry, with subtle citrus hints and spicy aromatic flavours, this gin steers tradition into unexpected waters.”
