St Barnabas 40th anniversary Gin and Rum nearly sold out

LAST year, St Barnabas Hospice partnered with Louth Distillery (former Bottomley Distillers) to create delicious gin and rum blends to commemorate the charity’s 40th anniversary. From the sale of each bottle, £14 is donated directly to St Barnabas.

The delicious drinks, aptly named Est.1982 Ruby Gin and Rum, respectively, have so far raised over £10,000 for local hospice care, with limited stock still available via the charity’s online shop.

The Est.1982 Ruby Gin is infused with strawberries and elderflowers with added flavours of citrus and cinnamon. It is a classic dry gin with a twist, lovely with a tonic.

Distilled with Caribbean sugar cane, the Est.1982 Ruby Rum is a reminder of a tropical beach holiday. It is sweetened with fresh pineapple and bananas, plus a touch of cinnamon and ginger.

Caroline Swindin, Head of Fundraising and Lottery at St Barnabas, said:

“These blends have been really popular, and we don’t have many bottles left. They’re just £28 each and made by the creators of Pin Gin, so you know they’re made with love and expertise. If you want some – be quick!

“Both the gin and rum make for a perfect summer’s drink to enjoy in the sunshine when hosting a Care for a Cuppa fundraiser for us or winding down on a warm night.

“They also are excellent gifts to thank your clients, partners, or employees. Some of our corporate supporters have done this before to thank their excellent staff members – much to their delight!”

Amy Conyard, co-founder of Louth Distillery, home of Pin Gin, said:

“We are very pleased to be supporting St Barnabas Hospice, they do so much good for the county, and almost everyone knows a person who has received care from them over the past forty years.

“The gin and rum are delicious flavours that are perfect for summertime drinks. We have distilled both here in Louth, especially for St Barnabas supporters to enjoy.”

All profits from selling the bottles will go directly to care for people with palliative and end-of-life needs in Lincolnshire.

Each year, St Barnabas supports over 12,000 people, including patients, their families, friends, and carers. All care is offered free of charge, and much of this work relies on donations and fundraising.

By buying a bottle (or two!) of Est.1982 Ruby Gin and Rum, you will support hospice care in communities around the county. Please visit: https://stbarnabashospice.co.uk/shop/onlineshop to purchase.
