The Adnams Distillery sits alongside the brewery and uses many of the same local ingredients. From the top of the building you can see some of the best views in Southwold, looking across the rooftops to the Lighthouse and North Sea beyond. The beautiful Suffolk coastline has been the inspiration for the product names and elegant packaging design.
Within the former copper brew house, Adnams have created the most energy efficient distillery in the UK, respecting tradition whilst utilising state of the art technology. The distillery generates 50% of the required water and steam for the brewery, forming an integral part of a sustainable system.
Originally an engineer by training, John has learnt the intricate art of distilling. John and Jonathan Adnams traveled around the globe seeking knowledge and inspiration on the art of micro-distilling. They both trained in distilling in the United States.
Since his initial training back in 2010, John has passionately immersed himself in the wonderful world of spirits, researching and familiarising himself with artisan spirits both historical and current from around the world.
He has been instrumental in developing our range of Adnams Copper House Spirits, creating our own recipes to excite and delight. He can still be found fixing things, occasionally.
