A limited edition gin has been produced by Tranquil Still distillery to raise money for Hope House children’s hospice.

The Clementine & Hibiscus Gin has been specially created by Tony Hobbs from his distillery with at least £10 from every bottle sold being donated to support seriously ill local children.

This one-off gin was created especially for Hope House with Tony using a new piece of kit that was part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

The grant has enabled the 2022 World Drinks Award-winning distillery to offer a new service of bespoke spirits production for peoples’ special events, or for businesses seeking their own unique drinks.

“Hope House does such crucially important work and we wanted to do something special for this charity,” said Tony.

“We were absolutely delighted to create this limited edition gin for Hope House and help raise funds towards the fantastic care and support they provide to children and families.”

This gin for Hope House is the first of our bespoke drinks; what a great way to start our new service.

It’s a gorgeous gin, just bursting with the Christmas flavour of fresh clementines carefully combined with the sweet-sour tanginess of hibiscus, all balanced in our award-winning floral botanical base.

“We recommend this Hope House-inspired gin be served over ice with either Indian tonic, or a quality lemonade for those with a sweeter tooth. The gin’s beautiful slightly cloudy golden colour comes from its high concentration of entirely natural flavour oils, all eagerly poised to bathe your taste buds with Christmas essence.”

Fundraiser Bekki Fardoe said: “We are hugely grateful to Tony at Tranquil Still for his support in producing this sublime gin, just in time for that special gift ahead of Christmas.

“We love seeing the creative ways in which local businesses support us and this is certainly one that we are sure will go down well.”

Each bottle of the gin is priced at £45 and the production run is limited. Bottles are on sale via the distillery’s online shop at www.tranquilstill.co.uk. An adult’s signature is required on delivery.
