Gin & Digital Tax - a new cocktail!

Last night members enjoyed the latest cocktail - Gin and Digital Tax! Our hosts were Anno Distillers in Marden, founded by Dr Andy Reason and Dr Norman Lewis who left behind their roles as scientists to pursue their passion for craft spirits and open Kent's first gin distillery in 200 years. With one eye on the science behind making quality spirits and another on proudly displaying all that their home county of Kent has to offer, they duly created Anno Distillers and began the journey of a lifetime. It was great to hear some of the lessons they have learnt along the way and great plans for the future.

Members also heard from Mark Wildi of Baxter & Co in Orpington , helping them to understand the changes they may need to make to comply with HMRC new Making Tax Digital. The key points and deadlines where discussed and Mark was kept busy with plenty of questions! Thanks to the whole Baxter & Co team for joining us and putting together a factsheet for the members.

There was plenty of time for tastings and networking among members old and new and plenty of contacts were made - looking forward to some new collaborations!

The next members event will be at Solleys Ice Cream on May 21st - Look out for the email.
