Behind the scenes filming at Greensand Ridge Distillery

We are proud to work with artisan Kent gin distillery, Greensand Ridge, who supply us not only with gin, but also with incredible tasting rum (our top summer tip for great cocktails).

Will Edge founded Greensand Ridge in 2016, with a desire to create craft gin using locally foraged botanicals and surplus Kent fruit rejected by supermarkets. Nearly three years later, their historic barn houses beautiful copper stills, wooden barrels, tanks and an end-to-end bottling and labelling line. They may be small, but their ambitions are big, and we are proud to offer our customers a gin that’s local, award-winning and of such great quality.

We spent a day filming at the distillery to create one of our short films about the Kings Head suppliers, with the fruits of that day revealed shortly.

For a sneak preview on the other side of the camera, watch our team in action in the behind the scenes video:

The Wonky Parsnip

Deep in the Kent Countryside near Chartham is The Wonky Parsnip, a homely place of local produce and the skills of Laura, who puts her all into the fab veg she supplies to The Kings Head. One sunny (and hot!) day in the middle of this year's heatwave Carl and I took a trip to meet Laura and see how she's living the good life!
