Head distiller John McCarthy said they were "delighted". "We have installed state of the art equipment and use sustainable technology to produce our international award winning spirits which are produced from East Anglian grown rye and barley," he said.

Adnams takes visitors on a one hour tour of the distillery, followed by a tutored tasting, lasting around 30 minutes.

It also offers experiences at the distillery, such as 'Make Your Own Gin' sessions.
