Stockport Gin, run by husband and wife Paul and Cheryl from their home distillery in Stockport, have recently added to their range of popular gins with the launch of their Sustainable Edition gin. The gin is made exclusively for Selfridges, the world-renowned department store, with locations in Manchester City Centre, The Trafford Centre, Birmingham and of course Oxford St in the heart of London.
Cheryl says, “This has been a really exciting project to work on for us. We were delighted when Selfridges approached us to produce an exclusive gin for them and we feel that the Sustainable Edition gin is a really unique gin given the concept and story behind it.”
Stockport Gin Sustainable Edition is made using leftover orange peels that the couple collect from bars and restaurants in Selfridges stores that would otherwise go to waste. These are then used to flavour the gin before being bottled in recyclable glass bottles. Even the labels used on the bottles have been sourced from a specialist supplier and are fully biodegradable.
Paul says, “Sustainability is a really important subject all around the world right now and something both us and Selfridges are passionate about so to be able to work with them and create a product that reflects this passion has been fantastic.”
