A Norfolk distillery's tipple has been named among the best in the country at an international awards ceremony.

Home Farm Gin's London Dry gin gained a silver medal at the World Gin Awards 2023.

The spirit, produced at the small distillery based in Hethersett, is one of 20 to have reached the final of the awards.

Paul Dunnett, who runs the business alongside master distiller Nev Leverett, said: "It is absolutely wonderful that our gin has been recognised as being among the best and to be worthy of an award.

"It is great that you don't need to take our word for it anymore - it's official."

Winners were announced at a ceremony in London on Wednesday, February 23.

Home Farm Gin can be found along a quiet lane in the village of Hethersett where it has been producing its artisan gin since November 2019.

The award comes soon after the launch of the company's new mobile bar, with plans to travel around the county for events.
