Gatwick supports local producers

Gatwick already stocks several local suppliers in both our shops and restaurants. You can buy Surrey’s Silent Pool Gin and Kent’s Fudge Kitchen at World Duty Free stores and Wimbledon Ale, Kentish Pip ciders and Five Hop Lager from the Hogs Back Brewery Co. in Surrey are all on offer in M&S. 

The London Bar serves Bathtub Gin from Tunbridge and Brighton Gin. Wines on offer include Ridgeview Wine from East Sussex and Chapeldown Brut from Kent. Our pubs serve ales from Westerham Brewery and Denbies Whitedown Brut from Surrey.

The four counties of Kent, Surrey, East and West Sussex have a superb range of local products, including award winning cheeses and sparkling wine, to all manner of artisan produce. At Gatwick we want to not only celebrate the very best of the surrounding counties produce but also help buyers from local businesses discover what is on their doorstep.
