Blackeye Gin is brought to us by three stars of the rugby world, Mike Tindall, James Haskell, and Alex Payne. Produced at London-based Thames Distillers, the gin includes a host of botanicals sourced from different rugby-playing nations across the globe. It boasts a citrus-forward profile with subtle florals and intriguingly, is rounded off with a secret ingredient that the makers claim you won't find in any other product in the world! This ought to be a fab choice for G&Ts while watching the rugby.
The gang at Blackeye has informed us that for every bottle sold, they will donate £1.50 to the brand's very own Blackeye Rugby Fund, supporting research into player safety, risk management within the game, and recovery for injured players.
Botanicals include Meadowsweet & Rose Petal from Gatcombe Park, Honey (now from the Middletons), lemon, orange, coriander seed, lavender, angelica root, elderflower & wild gorse.
