Spring into an ethical Gin Club with a seasonal spirit
If you love super-premium, craft gin and like to be sustainable with your packaging, here is a treat to put a spring in your step.
The stylish, ethical spirits company which produces Rock Rose Gin using local Scottish botanicals, has a Spring Edition – and this is the only spirits company to offer to offer its spirits in eco-friendly, recyclable pouches which you use to refill the elegant Rock Rose ceramic bottles.
The pouches are good for the planet and for your pocket. Each costs just £30, offering a considerable saving on the normal bottle price. The pouches are recyclable; you simply return them by freepost, with no extra packaging needed.
As the pouches are lighter than a bottle, this clever idea saves energy in the shipment too. There is no compromise on taste: just the satisfaction of paying less, not wasting the ceramic bottle, and helping the environment.
Rock Rose Spring Edition is a limited, hand-made batch of gin made by the most northerly distillery on the UK’s mainland near John O’Groats. Distilled using ingredients foraged from the local area, it is a cool, refreshing, hand-made spirit including coltsfoot, for sweetness; wild gorse flowers, which introduce a distinctive coconut note; and dandelion, which balances the sweetness with earthy, liquorice notes. Cardamom and water mint notes are enhanced to help balance the ingredients and bring an exciting freshness. It’s Spring in a bottle – or a pouch. The Spring Edition is available from w/c/ 8 March 2021 priced at £37.50 for a 70cl bottle.
Production is limited by the botanicals available. Because only two x 850 bottle batches are made, it’s a limited run – so grab it whilst you can. The recommended G&T serve is garnished with fresh coriander or gorse flowers.
Refill Rewards Club – the perfect gift or treat
The Club guarantees you regular deliveries of your favourite tipples in the range on a monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly basis. With 7 other spirits in the multi-award-winning range, including Holy Grass Vodka, you can switch to your chosen 70cl refill pouch – to fill a full-size bottle – as often as you wish and you will benefit from accompany mixers, garnish and a few free surprise gifts to enjoy too. It’s like your birthday every time – and all for just £30 per box, the price of a single refill pouch.
If you’re not ready to commit to regular deliveries yet, refillable pouches are available for Rock Rose Gin Original, Rock Rose Pink Grapefruit Old Tom Gin, Rock Rose Gin Summer, Autumn and Winter editions, and Holy Grass Vodka (all priced at £30) plus Rock Rose Gin Navy Strength (priced at £34).
The refillable pouches are just a fraction of how this company ‘gives back’. Claire and Martin Murray, the co-founders and directors of Dunnet Bay Distillers which makes Rock Rose Gin, have a sustainable approach to business; for example, to celebrate Spring and Summer, they plan regular beach clean-ups for any member of the team who want to join in.
