Bullards at Chantry Place


Bullards is a name that’s synonymous with the history of Norwich. Well known for supplying beers, wines and spirits, the fascinating history of Bullards spans six generations and continues to the present day with their award-winning, handcrafted gin.

Founded in 1837 in the heart of Norwich, The Tipsy Anchor (as it was then known) supplied a range of popular beers across Norfolk and imported wines and spirits. In 2015, Russell Evans recovered the lost identity of the brewery; links with the Bullards family were restored and Bullards Spirits emerged.

Each and every award-winning gin style offers a special and unique experience. Distilled in small batches for the highest quality spirit, Bullards produce 4 core gins – ‘World’s Best’ London Dry, fresh and fruity Strawberry & Black Pepper, traditionally warm Old Tom and the delicately saline Coastal gin.

At the Bullards store in Chantry Place you will be able to talk to their expert ambassadors about their carefully curated gins and gifts, sample the different styles for free, get guidance on their perfect pairings and find out how to mix them in a cocktail!

If that wasn’t enough, visitors can also take part in a Gin Experience. Led by one of their talented ambassadors, you’ll be taken on a sensory journey through their gin, where you’ll learn more about their unique botanicals and how their award-winning styles are developed. By the end of the 45-minute session, you’ll have learnt all about the history of gin, mastered some professional tasting techniques and enjoyed four marvellous G&T’s!

Gin Experiences cost £25 per person. Book your place or find out more here.
