Our Story

"Creating distinctive, memorable food and drink moments is my passion; sharing our stories and seeing people enjoy the experience is such a pleasure"

Jon Mills

We welcome you

something to be proud of

We love making stories and listening to others tales. About our products, our tours, our BrewPub. We take great pride in the quality of our products and our service and want to make them memorable. Something others want to share and be a part of.

We’re owner-founded and managed – driven by creative passion and curiosity. We create unique beers and spirits in our historic Foundry that we sell on premise and online, as well as with our select partners.

Creating Special Moments

Our Promise

We take great care with our beers and our spirits - considering all of the elements in the process and in our choice of ingredients.

We also take advantage of our amazing location in the historic garden of England to find collaborations and partners to build our offer.

This results in unique brews, with distinctive flavours and aromas you won't find anywhere else. All for your delight and enjoyment.

Our History

Canterbury Brewers & Distillers is housed in our Victorian Industrial Foundry that produced cast metal items that went all over the world.

You can still see the first lamp posts ever made, here in Canterbury and in Cities such as New York and Port Elizabeth.
