Anno Distillers, a British distillery, has successfully secured its initial £450,000 funding target on equity crowdfunding platform Seedrs. Founded in 2011, the company states it creates high-quality spirits using innovative and natural ingredients. Its founders, Dr. Andy Reason and Dr. Norman Lewis, both Ph.D. Research and Development chemists, notably wanted to create artisanal spirits whose unique character was their quality and fine craftsmanship.
“Inspired by their love of craft spirits, lifelong scientists Andy and Norman decided to use their expertise and passion to found Anno in 2011, bringing a proud tradition of gin making back to their home county of Kent for the first time in over 200 years. Our enthusiastic team has strived to ensure that every drop of Anno relays the passion and love we all share for quality craft spirits. We impart our fondness for science and experimentation into each bottle to bring you the best flavours that the Garden of England has to offer.”
Anno Distillers also noted that over the past three years, sales have increased 45% each year, and the company has decided that the commercial proof of concept achieved coupled with the multiple industry awards and accolades justifies a funding round and sharing the future growth with new shareholders.
Funds from the equity crowdfunding round will go towards the continuous expansion of Anno Distiller’s distillery. The campaign is set to close later this spring.
