Stockport Gin has launched its Sustainable Edition made out of leftover orange peel.
The gin is made exclusively for Selfridges with locations in Manchester City Centre, The Trafford Centre, Birmingham and London.
Stockport Gin is run by husband and wife Paul and Cheryl from their home distillery in Stockport.
Cheryl says: This has been a really exciting project to work on for us. We were delighted when Selfridges approached us to produce an exclusive gin for them and we feel that the Sustainable Edition gin is a really unique gin given the concept and story behind it.”
Stockport Gin Sustainable Edition is made using leftover orange peel that the couple collect from bars and restaurants in Selfridges stores that would otherwise go to waste.
These are then used to flavour the gin before being bottled in recyclable glass bottles. Even the labels used on the bottles have been sourced from a specialist supplier and are fully biodegradable.
Paul adds: “Sustainability is a really important subject all around the world right now and something both us and Selfridges are passionate about, so to be able to work with them and create a product that reflects this passion has been fantastic.”
