Dunnet Bay Distillers’ Mr Mackintosh features on the new artists’ edition label, which will raise funds for the Scottish SPCA

CAITHNESS-based Dunnet Bay Distillers is backing animal welfare charity the Scottish SPCA with a new limited edition bottling.

The firm has launched the new artists’ edition label of its Rock Rose Gin – and pledged to donate £5 from the sale of each bottle to the Scottish SPCA.

The new label features Dunnet Bay Distillers’ company mascot and pet, Mr Mackintosh the schnauzer.

Martin Murray, director of Rock Rose Gin, said: “As animal lovers, we are delighted to be supporting the Scottish SPCA and its exceptional work. Mr Mackintosh is well known in the gin world and it’s great for him to feature on this bottle which will be a real collector’s edition.”

Scottish SPCA director of fundraising and marketing, Anna Devine, said the charity is “honoured” to be chosen by the Rock Rose Gin team.

“It’s wonderful to be teaming up with an animal-loving organisation which shares our values and believes in our mission,” she said.

“The donations from sales of this product will help our team to continue carrying out their life-saving work rescuing and looking after animals across Scotland. Such support is so important given how challenging a year it has been.

“We hope this will be the start of a blossoming relationship between ourselves, Rock Rose Gin, and of course Mr Mackintosh.”
