The team at the Fynoderee Distillery in Ramsey are celebrating the award of a Silver Medal for its RNLI Edition Gin at the prestigious World Gin Awards.
The World Gin Awards select the finest gins in the world and promote these to consumers and the drinks trade across the globe.
The RNLI Edition Gin was created in partnership with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) to raise funds for the much-loved and respected lifesaving charity, as well as helping commemorate the RNLI 200th anniversary during 2024.
Tiffany Kerruish, Co-Founder, The Fynoderee Distillery said:
‘The feedback we have received on the taste of our fundraising RNLI Edition Gin has been incredible since we launched. We are delighted that the judges at the World Drink Awards agreed, awarding it a Silver Medal in the hotly contested “Classic Gin” Taste Award category.
‘For those wanting a sense of what our RNLI gin offers, it is a crisp aromatic gin packed full of juniper with pine and lemon zest notes on the nose, opening out to herbaceous fennel and coriander with soft, spicy complexity from nutmeg, orris and cardamom.
‘With a nod to the RNLI and the Island’s role in its creation, a touch of sugar kelp was added to the gin, giving a long, clean finish that’s as invigorating as the Irish Sea itself!
‘The Fyn team are delighted to have received this accolade, which is testament to their hard work and, of course, we will be celebrating our success with an RNLI ‘Fyn and Tonic!’
The team at the Fynoderee Distillery are fully embracing the RNLI200 celebrations this year, with its Coastal Collection of Spirits - its fundraising partnership with the Institution which also shines a light on the Manx origins of the charity - at the forefront of these.
‘With our RNLI Gin already making waves of its own and selling strongly, we are now planning the launch of the second spirit in the Collection – the limited-edition cask-aged Refuge Manx Rum.
‘Living up to its name, this very special organic rum is currently securely locked away in the iconic Tower of Refuge in Douglas Bay, built through the endeavours of RNLI funder Sir William Hillary. Once the rum has matured in the autumn, we will release it from the Tower for bottling, but will be making it available for pre-ordering well in advance of then as we believe this will be a very much sought-after product!’
Anyone wishing to try the ‘award-winning RNLI Edition Gin can order a bottle at www.fynoderee.com. Postage will be free on all orders placed before 28th January 2024.
