Stirling Distillery today announced the launch of a limited edition gold gin named OlympiGIN, just in time for the Tokyo Olympics.
This specially created gold-flaked gin - made from Stirlingshire nettles and Japanese yuzu - are expertly blended to create a winning combination spirit.
Limited to a small batch of 500 bottles, gin will be sent to British and Northern Irish Olympic and Paralympic gold medal winners from the Games. But gin fans be warned, the more medals won, the less bottles there will be for purchase!
This limited edition gin is the creation of new head distiller Lisa Matthews and the eye-catching bottle was designed by Scottish graphic designer Megan Raine. A percentage of the profits from the sale will be donated to sports charity Sported - a UK wide charity which promotes fairness and equity for young people through grassroot sport and physical activity.
The family-run business has had great success with its virtual drink experiences over the past year with online sales increasing by 250%. When COVID hit in March 2020,the business had to rethink its approach due to their distillery tour, shop and gin school being temporarily closed during the pandemic. Founders June and Cameron McCann decided to create a virtual drinks package, a virtual distillery tour and offer live Zoom tastings as a way to bring people together during lockdown.
Having already launched three new products over the past year - Stirling Pink Gin , their Sons of Scotland whisky range and the popular Tropical Triumph liqueur - the distillery are hoping this limited edition gold gin will be the drink of choice for gin and Olympic enthusiasts alike.
