Introducing NEW Cantium: The World’s First Gin presented in stylish second-use packaging

Cantium is a homegrown Gin with a conscience; it not only looks good and tastes great, but is pioneering an innovative recycling scheme with its stylish reusable Flask. Cantium delivers a true taste of Kent, with locally sourced ingredients including Blackberry, Apple, Cobnut, Hops, Lavender and Roasted amongst the key botanicals.


Cantium itself is the Roman word for Kent. The logo is inspired by a mosaic tile found at Lullingston Roman Villa, a few miles from Cantium HQ and the lavender we use is from the stunning fields at Castle Farm, a stone’s throw away from the villa.
DID YOU KNOW: It is said that the Romans introduced Lavender and Cobnuts to Britain. Lavender being an antiseptic used on battle wounds!
Cantium was the brainchild of Kevin Andrews, from Sevenoaks in Kent. A great lover of Gin, he was keen to produce a contemporary dry Gin. Two stills and hours of YouTube videos later he had his first batch of Gin; his hobby soon became an obsession as he experimented with different recipes chasing that perfect profile.
Eventually he hit on a recipe he loved; a smooth taste when taken neat with wonderful floral notes but also delicious in a G and T, or C and T as we call it. After receiving positive feedback from friends, family and other Gin lovers, he started to develop the Cantium brand.
The Gin market is a crowded one; at the forefront of Kevin’s mind was ‘if you’re going to join this party you better bring something new…’
In a world full of single use packaging Kevin wanted to create a more sustainable bottle that also looked attractive and eye-catching that would sing to you from the shop shelf.
The Cantium Flask was chosen. It keeps drinks hot or cold for hours, and has a life cycle that continues long after the Gin has gone. Reusable, Recyclable and unbreakable. This is the worlds first Gin in a reusable Flask!
Customers can return any unwanted flasks to us and they will be donated to our charity partner, Warming Up The Homeless, where they will be used to keep soups and other food warm for the homeless this Winter.
RRP £40 for 500cl, available from
