Hi-Spirits has expanded its gin portfolio with an agreement to distribute New Zealand brand Scapegrace Gin in the UK.
Coming from the Rogue Society Distilling Co, Scapegrace bills itself as the gin ‘from the bottom of the world’. Distilled in New Zealand using spring water sourced from the country’s Southern Alps, and 12 botanicals sourced from around the world, the spirit is batch-distilled using a restored 19th-century copper whisky still, with each batch individually numbered.
Scapegrace is a traditional word for a rogue or rascal, and the brand celebrates gin’s sometimes murky history with a black-tinted bottle, which has a shape based on an antique genever bottle.
Hi-Spirits managing director Dan Bolton said, “Consumers increasingly enjoy a range of gins and gin serves in their drinking repertoire. Along with offering on-trade and off-trade retailers classic and modern gins, both British and global, we’re helping them to plan their ranges and segment the gin category to meet consumer expectations.”Scapegrace gin has an ABV of 42.2% ABV with an RRP of £39.99.
