A special edition pink gin is now on sale in the Club Superstore, with profits from the sale of the drink helping to raise vital funds for Ashgate Hospicecare.
Councillor Martin Thacker MBE, chairman of North East Derbyshire District Council and co-vice chairman of the club, has teamed up with Derbyshire Distillery to launch the cherry-flavoured gin as part of his fundraising efforts for the Chesterfield-based charity.
He said: “It has been a great experience working with Derbyshire Distillery to produce this incredible special edition gin. It is sure to be a big hit with gin lovers and as a special edition – make sure you get your hands on a bottle before they run out!
“Of course, the main reason for producing this gin is to help support my charity during my year in office – Ashgate Hospicecare. All profits from the sales of the gin will be donated to the charity.
“The work the hospice does to help families in their tough and distressing times is incredible and I would like to do everything possible to help support them in continuing their fantastic work and care they provide.”
The signature gin is one example of local businesses working together with the chairman and every penny of profit from sales will go towards helping raise money to support Ashgate Hospicecare in the work they do to provide palliative care to patients and support they provide to many families in the district.
The gin comes in 50cl bottles at a cost of £25 and is available to purchase from the Club Superstore now.
