Darnley's Gin has agreed to donate £5 from every bottle of Darnley's Navy Strength Gin purchased through their online shop, from 11th November to 11th December, to the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC) to mark the Centenary Anniversary of the signing of the Armistice.
The Navy Strength gin style has its roots in the Royal Navy as sailors used to receive gin rations that were over 57% proof, this creates a robust gin with a strong juniper backbone. Sir Rosslyn Wemyss would have been a captain of ships with his crew looking forward to their monthly ration.
William Wemyss, Managing Director of Darnley's, commented, "Drawing on the remarkable story of our ancestor Sir Rosslyn Wemyss helps to bring Darnley’s Navy Strength Gin to life.
In this centenary year of the signing of the Armistice, we want to donate a portion of the bottle sales from our webshop to support the work of the RNRMC - the principal charity of the Royal Navy that supports sailors, marines, veterans and their families, for life.
We hope the public take the opportunity to try this award-winning gin and raise funds for a great cause.”
Donations will be made on all purchases made after 11am on the 11th November.
