Description

The Royal British Legion Poppy Gin is hand-crafted and distilled in partnership with the Burleighs Gin Distillery. Designed by Burleighs’ in-house designer Sam Munton, the bottle features cascading poppies and accents of red, inspired by the red poppies that are synonymous with The Royal British Legion. Burleighs suggests serving the Poppy Gin with a crisp and classic tonic, plenty of ice and a fresh citrus wedge.

To celebrate The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Shop and highlight the importance of remembering former war veterans and supporting existing ones, Burleighs Gin has created The Royal British Legion Poppy Gin.

Poppies Gin Details

I’ve served this gin in a tall glass filled with ice. As you already know from my previous post the glass has to be nice and cold. For my garnishes I’ve used Juniper Berries and Star Anise. Cause I think they fit in nicely with the floral flavor of the gin. For the tonic I’ve opted for a neutral Fever-Tree Indian Tonic (2 ounces (5cl) of gin and about 4 ounces (10cl) of tonic), because the gin and star anise have a very strong scent and taste on their own I didn’t want to mix in to many flavors. Sam Watson, commercial director at Burleighs Gin, added: “Understandably many volunteers can’t assist in fundraising efforts this year because of the risk posed by Covid-19, but the need for services and commitment to helping members of the armed forces community who need it, never ceases.

We took a bottle home and gave it a try. The taste is quite herbal, with a strong flavor of aniseed or licorice. Reading the bottle, we learned it is distilled with a secret recipe including a ‘balanced blend of selected herbs.’ While Sam Watson, commercial director at Burleighs Gin added: “Understandably many volunteers can’t assist in fundraising efforts this year because of the risk posed by Covid-19, but the need for services and commitment to helping members of the armed forces community who need it, never ceases. We’re very thankful to be able to help raise money for the legion through sales of the Poppy Gin.” Every single bottle of the Poppy Gin is hand-crafted and distilled on a beautiful copper pot still. It is the design of the still, careful sourcing of ingredients and great skill of the distiller that all contribute to the smooth nature of the product, enjoyed perfectly in a classic gin & tonic.Charlie Hendon, the master distiller at Burleighs Gin said: “It’s an honour to create a gin to support all the fantastic veterans and the armed forces community we have in Britain. Whilst the Poppy Appeal is a long-standing and well-recognised campaign, with the current times we’re living in and the Covid-19 pandemic hindering fundraising efforts, we want to ensure funds are raised and this is the best way we know how. We stumbled across Poppies Gin while browsing the Vraie Confiture du Durbuy shop. This little shop was a treasure trove of goodies from the region and it turns out their wares weren’t limited to Walloon products. Whilst the Poppy Appeal is a long-standing and well-recognised campaign, with the current times we’re living in and the Covid-19 pandemic hindering fundraising efforts, we want to ensure funds are raised and this is the best way we know how."
