Founding Members' Club - Limited Time Only

A unique opportunity to support and be part of Maidstone Distillery 

We are delighted to offer supporters the chance to be a Founding Member of Maidstone Distillery. This unique and special opportunity is your chance to be part of something special: to help realise our vision for a Distillery and visitor attraction at the heart of our county town. By becoming a Founding Member you will be contributing towards a home-grown business building its foundation in Kent as well as helping re-establish a distilling legacy that Maidstone and Kent can be proud of. In return we promise to put you first as a customer of the Distillery. 


Only available before we open : Founding Members' Club ends 31st March 2020.

For a limited Period - Until 14th June 2019 all existing Founding Members will be entered into a prize draw for 10 lucky members to be chosen at random to join Maidstone Distillery as we visit our partner and forage for ingredients to be used in our contemporary gin recipe
