Persie Distillery launches ‘Unbridled’ gin for horse enthusiasts

Glenshee-based producer, Persie Distillery, has launched a new gin in support of animal charity World Horse Welfare. 

£5 from every bottle of Unbridled Gin sold will be donated to the charity, which works to improve welfare for horses, ponies, donkeys and mules around the world. 

The gin itself is produced using a number of ‘horse friendly’ ingredients including green apples, and is said to have top notes of fresh cut grass and apples, and heart notes of hay and sandalwood.

Simon Fairclough, distiller and managing director, said: “It appeals to us that gin lovers can help to raise funds for animal welfare as they enjoy a snifter. After several years of sponsoring dog and cat charities it’s a perfect fit for us to team up with a global organisation that makes a big difference to horses’ lives. 

“World Horse Welfare’s sterling work for horses, ponies, donkeys and mules is life-changing and we are proud to be a partner.”

Director of fundraising at World Horse Welfare, Peter Rowbottom, said: “We are delighted to embark on this relationship with Persie Distillery – a company that is striving to build on its efforts to raise funds for animal welfare.

“We love the playful, horse-themed botanicals in this World Horse Welfare gin and, for anyone who enjoys a tipple, there is the added benefit of knowing it is helping horses desperately in need.”

Customised bottles are also available with the option to feature a picture of an individual horse or horses on the back label.
