The first two batches of a Trawler-Strength gin, paying tribute to Hull’s maritime past has sold-out.
Humber Street Gin Distillery launched the new marine flavour in June and since then has sold more than 320 bottles, contributing almost £500 to the Hull Maritime Foundation.
Owner of Hull’s first gin distillery and bar, Lee Kirman of Humber Street Distillery Co, created a bespoke gin to support the Hull: Yorkshire’s Maritime City project and presented a cheque to Lord Haskins, Chairman of Hull Maritime Foundation.
Lee Kirman, said: “We have been overwhelmed with the level of interest in the Trawler-Strength gin and the hugely impressive project itself. We wanted to do something to support the project and give a nod to Hull’s rich maritime past and future.
“Sales for the third batch are going well and the Trawler-Strength gin is an ideal Christmas gift for any gin lover.”
The Trawler Gin is available to buy from Humber Street Distillery, The Store on Pier Street in the Fruit Market, Sewell on the Go in South Cave, House of Townend in Melton and Nisa Local in North Ferriby. From Monday 2 December, Humber Street Distillery Co. will also be at St Stephens Shopping Centre every day in December between 9am – 5pm.
