Ranscombe Wild Gin

A Partnership With Plantlife

The Maidstone Distillery is forging an exciting partnership with UK conservation charity Plantlife, to create a new gin distilled with wild foraged botanicals from Plantlife’s flagship nature reserve in Cuxton, Kent.


We are reinstating the tradition of Maidstone pioneer and master distiller, George Bishop, who created quality and world-renowned spirits from our county town back in 1785. We are reclaiming our forgotten heritage to produce spirits of depth, meaning and character that we can all be proud of. He was a champion of the people and it’s time for his legacy to be tasted again.
