Small distilleries on the rise as drinkers turn to trendy gins

Small distilleries on the rise as drinkers turn to trendy gins

Accountancy group UHY Hacker Young has released a report showing that the British gin industry's growth continues, with the number of distilleries jumping 33% from 21 to 28 last year.

There has also been a surge in the number of vineyards and breweries opening up across the country, as niche products become more popular among a discerning generation of drinkers.

The UHY report found that 37 new wine producers have been set up in England over the past year while some 285 new breweries have appeared in recent years.

Kent-based Chapel Down has raised £1.7m to build its own brewery for its Curious Drinks beer and cider business.
