Heart of Suffolk Distillery Tasting

Sat 30 Nov, from 11am

The Heart of Suffolk Distillery was launched by husband and wife team Martyn and Karen Luke in 2018 when a dream turned to reality. Both are local to the heart of Suffolk, with Karen growing up just a half a mile from where the distillery has been established.

Gin has been a passion of Karen’s for many years and more recently of Martyn’s and it was an easy decision when naming their signature product, to honour Betty, Karen’s mother, who shared the same love and enjoyment of a good quality gin. Karen remembers her mother being a proper Suffolk girl; straight-talking, strong willed and famed for her love of a really good gin. Karen knows she would have been delighted to think that a bit of her legacy goes into every bottle they make.
