The Folkestone Distillery

In 2019, Peter Bracewell decided he wanted to leave the corporate grind behind and turn his passion for vibrant, flavoursome spirits into something he could share with the world.

He fell in love with Folkestone and after moving with his wife Abbie and daughter Bonnie to the dramatic Kent coast, set about creating The Folkestone Distillery.

Beach Buoys Gin is the beginning of his journey, taking a modern approach to a historic industry.

In addition to using cutting edge technology to create a unique flavour in both the Coastal Dry and Coastal Aromatic gins, The Folkestone Distillery uses fully recyclable aluminium bottles - part of a commitment to ensuring the joy of beach living continues for generations to come.
