Bombay Sapphire has appointed Dr. Anne Brock as its new master distiller at its distillery in Laverstoke, England.

She will work alongside master of botanicals, Ivano Tonutti, and lead a team of 14 distillers.

“As an individual who is incredibly passionate about gin, I look forward to working with a team who share a drive to push boundaries and innovate,” said Brock.

She joins Bacardi after spending four years as lead distiller for Bermondsey Gin Ltd, and she currently holds a position on the board of directors at the Gin Guild.

Brock was educated at Oxford University and achieved a PhD in organic chemistry from St. Catherine’s college.

“Anne is a well-known and much-respected member of the wider gin community, and her knowledge and technical experience will no doubt be put to good use in her role as master distiller,” says Jo Botwood, global brand director.
