**** PRESS RELEASE FROM PUDDINGSTONE DISTILLERY ****
Box Moor Gin was originally created in 2019 to celebrate the 425th Anniversary of The Box Moor Trust who are based just over 10 miles from Puddingstone Distillery and happen to have a small number of rare juniper bushes, many of which were transplanted to avoid destruction when the A41 was built through a section of the land the trust managed.
Founders Kate & Ben, write: "After numerous requests we released a second batch this year. This meant that back in 2022 Kate and I hand picked and graded juniper, this time from a single bush, making this gin exceptionally unique.
Juniper takes the lead role, balanced against British coriander seed, British angelica root, orris powder and fresh cut lime. Lime was chosen as the Box Moor Trust own a plot of land that was once leased out to the makers of Roses Lime Cordial… the lime juice was shipped up the Grand Union and stored in barrels at Box Moor Wharf."
The design of the bottle is based on the Belted Galloway cows that can be seen grazing on the Trust's Estate. As this breed comes in a number of colours, the “stripy” or “Oreo cookie” cows' identity has been adopted across the bottles. On the rear of the bottles is the graphic of a white marker stone set in the grass. This stone, found on the estate, marks the approximate location where one Robert Snooks, a highwayman, was hung for stealing from a postal worker who was making his way from Hemel Hempstead to Puddingstone Distillery's home town, Tring.
£2.00 from each bottle sale goes back to supporting all the conservation work that the Box Moor tTust carries out. Buy online via Puddingstone Distillery.
