The founders of Otterbeck Distillery have partnered with family friend Captain Sir Tom Moore to launch a new gin that will support The Captain Tom Foundation.
The gin is said to be inspired by the herbs grown in the Yorkshire childhood garden of former British army officer Captain Sir Tom, who gained widespread recognition in 2020 for his fundraising efforts.
Featuring notes of rosemary and thyme, the new offering has an ABV of 40%. Proceeds from every bottle sold will be donated to The Captain Tom Foundation.
Nicola Lampkin, co-founder of Otterbeck Distillery, said: “It is an amazing privilege to be working with Captain Sir Tom and his foundation which supports some incredible charities; we’re delighted to be able to do our bit to help support such worthwhile causes.
“Captain Sir Tom has captured the imagination of the world and we’re proud to have distilled a very special gin with a very special man.”
Hannah Ingram-Moore, daughter of Captain Sir Tom, added: “On behalf of Captain Sir Tom and family we are delighted to be in partnership with Otterbeck Distillery and sincerely look forward to our journey together.
“We feel an electric connection to Yorkshire so working with a gin based here is so special to us as we continue to build our family legacy and celebrate our heritage.”
With an RRP of £35.95 per 70cl bottle, Captain Sir Tom London Dry Gin is available via the distillery’s website.
