Declaration Gin | England,Australia, India | Cricket
We chose one of the rainy days at Lords this season to attend an Ashes match where not a ball was bowled. What bad luck given the drama of the series. But it meant that we spent some time with former England Cricket Captain Michael Vaughan and learnt of his plans to launch ‘Declaration Gin.’ This would include botanicals from just about every country against whom he had played cricket. What a great idea!
We are so pleased to be striking up a partnership with one of England’s best ever Cricket captains and hope you will all enjoy the association along with the history and Michael’s charity objectives which we wholeheartedly support.
10% of profits from Declaration Gin go towards Michael’s chosen charity, The Black Heart Foundation.
Declaration Gin Tasting Notes:
With its bright, intriguing and complex nose, Declaration Dry Gin invites you to taste, and when you do you’ll find juniper’s influence with crafted spice from our botanical trio.
English liquorice – reflecting the English history of Pontefract cakes made in Yorkshire since 1637
Australian ginger – unique tasting and full of heritage from the gateway to the southern Great Barrier Reef
Indian Darjeeling Tea – along with cardamom make up he main influences of the gin
With a tonic, a subtle juniper and liquorice sweetness is quickly cut through with clean green cardamom and a ginger note to avail and change on the palate
What The Ginmaker says
Rick Lewis the founder of Blackheart is a good friend and his vision to inspire kids from under privileged back grounds to get a start in life through education inspired me to get involved. I think it’s so important that young people from all backgrounds if they have the right drive & ambition should be a given a chance and that’s what the Blackheart foundation is achieving.
