Sustainability Pledge

100% Green Energy

We are proud to declare that Maidstone Distillery runs on 100% green energy. It may be more expensive, but we are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our operations to the absolute minimum.

Plastic Free Packaging

All of our fine spirits are packed using the innovative Flexi-Hex plastic free packaging. This remarkably robust solution is made from recycled paper and is fully recyclable again at the end of use. What’s more, we can also proudly state that we do not use plastic based tapes, polystyrene or shrink wrap in any of our packaging – even our bottle seals are made from paper!

Charity Partnerships

We have forged an exciting partnership with UK conservation charity Plantlife, and have created a contemporary gin distilled with wild foraged botanicals from Plantlife’s flagship nature reserve in Cuxton, Kent. We donate over 2.5% from the sales of Ranscombe Wild Small Batch Gin to Plantlife, to help them continue their important conservation work. You can learn more about the latest Plantlife campaigns here.

Bottle Refill Service

We have now launched our new bottle refill service, which allows our customers to return their empty bottles to us for refilling at a reduced cost. This service will not only reduce the number of bottles destined for landfill, but also lower the number of new bottles being transported to the distillery, helping to reduce our carbon footprint further. Learn more.

Legacy

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.
