CPRE Hampshire launches new ‘community’ gin in partnership with local company, Gorilla Spirits Co.

10th February 2022

CPRE Hampshire are delighted to have been working in partnership with local company, Gorilla Spirits Co., on creating a new CPRE Hampshire ‘Countryside Gin’. The best bit is that not only is it a delicious treat, but a donation will be made to CPRE Hampshire for every bottle sold.

CPRE Hampshire is a local charity that is passionate about the countryside and works hard for a thriving and sustainable countryside for today and generations to come. In Hampshire we are fortunate to have two National Parks, three areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, rare chalk streams of international renown, areas designated for nature conservation and stretches of protected coastline – we have a lot to be proud of. But there are many challenges too, including population growth, climate change, pressures to grow the economy and to build more houses. Boyd McCleary, Acting Chair of CPRE Hampshire, explains:

“We are a charity that works for the Hampshire countryside to ensure that in planning for the future, the countryside and its valuable resources are properly considered and managed to maintain a thriving natural environment for generations to come. We are delighted to be working with Gorilla Spirits, as a local business with a strong sense of social responsibility, to provide a different and fresh stream of funding for the charity. There is a message about our current hedgerows initiative on each bottle and we get a donation from every bottle sold.”

Gorilla Spirits, based in Upton Grey, was set up by Andy Daniels, to combine his dream of creating high quality spirits and liqueurs with a business that is focused on social responsibility, sustainability and conservation. At the heart of this is their on-going commitment to gorilla conservation however, they also look to support causes closer to home. Their Community Spirit programme enables non-profit organisations, like CPRE Hampshire, to earn as much as £5 from every bottle of gin that is sold in the name of the participating organisation.

Andy says “I am delighted to be working with CPRE Hampshire as part of our Community Spirit Programme. As a rurally based business we fully appreciate the work they do to make the Hampshire countryside a better place for everyone to live, work and enjoy. The gin we have produced for them, which we make in Upton Grey, is a fresh, citrussy, London Dry, and with summer fast approaching it’s a great way to celebrate our wonderful countryside”.

A fabulous gift for friends and family, or a little treat for yourself – every bottle sold raises much needed funds for the work of the countryside charity. What better reason do you need?

CPRE Hampshire Countryside Gin is available exclusively through the Gorilla Spirits website.
