The following has been published by the wonderful Wessex Spirits based in Andover.
Its not directly pub-related but is such a good cause.
May is Bladder Cancer Awareness Month which is a great excuse for me to shout about Laura’s Gin.
I’ve been making Laura’s Gin for a over year now. The idea being to help Laura raise money for her charity Fight Bladder Cancer. She wanted to raise £170k as that’s how much her treatment would have cost.
My cunning plan back in November 2019 was to make a gin that Laura could sell and I would donate 100% of profits to her JustGiving page to help her reach her target. Working with the charity it took a little longer to develop than I’d hoped but in February 2020 I was ready to launch and super excited to surprise Laura with her gin.
Sadly I was four days too late and never got to share her gin with her. But I know she would have loved it and I know that she would be thrilled that people are drinking her gin and enjoying it.
To support Bladder Cancer Awareness Month I’ve made a special release of Laura’s Gin in my beautiful heart shaped bottles and I wanted to offer it to you wonderful gin lovers first. At just £12 what’s not to love? It’s infused with oranges and cloves with a bit of added sparkle and is delicious with either tonic or ginger ale and a slice of orange.

I still donate 100% of profits to Laura’s JustGiving page to raise money for Fight Bladder Cancer.
