**** PRESS RELEASE FROM PENRHOS SPIRITS ****
What do you get when you mix a food-waste fighting fruit and veg company with an award-winning spirits maker? Oddbox has teamed up with Penrhos Spirits to create a deliciously odd limited edition gin that fights food waste with every sip. Introducing Cucumber & Apple Gin – made using wonky cucumbers and apples rescued by Oddbox, distilled and bottled by award-winning Penrhos Spirits.
This is the first time Oddbox has teamed up to create a spirit using its rescued fruit. But with lots in common, it felt like a natural partnership. Penrhos Spirits’ drinks are all made from imperfectly perfect fruit on Penrhos’ Fruit Farm in Herefordshire – fruit that is unable to be sold to supermarkets. At Oddbox, the mission is to fight food waste, one curvy cucumber at a time. A perfectly odd partnership in every sense.
The gin is bottled in Penrhos’ 100% recycled aluminium bottles that are fully recyclable, reusable, refillable and a category first. With a brilliantly British flavour for the summertime, each bottle contains 200g of rescued cucumbers and apples. But you’ll need to be quick if you want to try it – only 500 bottles of this highly limited edition gin have been produced as part of the partnership.
Harriet Williams, Penrhos Spirits, comments: “We’ve always followed the Oddbox mission with great adoration for their food waste fighting focus. With an authentic synergy between our spirits and Oddbox’s vision, we couldn’t think of a better partner to be working with this summer to create a tasty, limited edition gin for both our customers.”
Deepak, Oddbox co-founder, comments: “We love what Penrhos Spirits are doing with fruit that’s at risk of going to waste, and we’re also big fans of their new, reusable aluminium bottles. So this felt like a natural partnership. Two food-waste fighting companies, one delicious gin. Cheers all round.”
Oddbox x Penrhos Spirits Cucumber & Apple Gin will be available from PenrhosSpirits.co.uk, 70cl RRP £38 ABV 40%, from Wednesday 9th August until stocks last.
