Bramble Gin launch at Hammonds of Knutsford

By on October 7, 2018

Chilgrove Spirits and Hammonds of Knutsford have just confirmed a new deal to supply Chilgrove’s brand new Brambled Edition Gin.

This is the very first grape-alcohol gin and vodka in the UK.

This new distribution deal will see Chilgrove’s portfolio of unique spirits secure new routes to market in both the on and off trade in the UK and Europe.

MD and Co-founder of Chilgrove Spirits, Christopher Beaumont-Hutchings, said, “Finding the right distribution partner has been a key focus for us over the past year and we are very excited to be working alongside the incredible team at Hammonds as we continue to grow the Chilgrove brand. Their depth of business and industry acumen along with the quality of their sales-force and logistics makes them the perfect fit as we take our business to the next level”.

Jonathan Hammond (MD) of Hammonds of Knutsford said, “We are ecstatic to be Chilgrove Spirits chosen exclusive UK distribution partner, having previously been an early supporter of their innovative and unique grape based spirits. We certainly love their drinks, and the new Bramble variant can only be described as a fantastic edition to their portfolio. I look forward to an enjoyable, long lasting and fruitful partnership, excuse the pun!”

The launch of Chilgrove’s brand new ‘Bramble Edition Gin’ and a packaging refresh for their ‘Signature Edition Gin’ both coincide perfectly with this new distribution deal. As with all Chilgrove’s unique spirits, the story of their Bramble Edition Gin starts not with blackberries but with grapes. They distil 100% grape-alcohol with crystal-clear Sussex natural mineral water, along with twelve carefully balanced botanicals including blackberry.

The resulting London Dry Gin is then infused with stunning whole English blackberries for a full lunar cycle to fully capture the essence of this Gloriously English fruit.

Chilgrove Bramble Edition is a seriously-smooth, ruby-red gin just bursting with fruit.

MD & Co-founder of Chilgrove Spirits, Christopher Beaumont-Hutchings, explains, “Introducing blackberries carefully in these two separate parts of the gin-making process ensures that juniper remains at the forefront which, coupled with the bottling-strength of 42% abv, truly earns its title of ‘Super-Premium Gin’.

Interest in fruit and flavoured gins is soaring and we are very excited to be putting our unique stamp on this burgeoning sub-sector of the gin market. The smooth texture of our signature grape-base marries perfectly with the subtle notes of English blackberry delivering a serious gin that is guaranteed to impress”.

The new Bramble Edition Gin will be presented in the same super-premium packaging as its sister products, complete with bespoke glass stopper and an elegant double-gate folded neck-brochure providing the customer with detailed product information and four signature cocktail recipes.
