Dog loving distillers launch 3 Pugs Gin
Hammonds of Knutsford have announced the launch of a new small batch gin called 3 Pugs Gin, named after the distillers’ three dogs, Pepsi, Tutu and Mojo.
Available in Signature and Blackcurrant flavours, 3 Pugs Gin is distilled using eight botanicals macerated for 24 hours prior to distillation; juniper, coriander, orris, angelica, cardamon, elderflower, basil and orange.
It is produced by Warrington-based husband and wife gin fanatics, Christine and Stephen Ditchfield in their garden distillery using a copper pot alembic still. The couples’ three Pug dogs are illustrated on the label and each one of the ‘drunken’ slanted bottles is distilled, bottled, wax sealed and labelled by hand.
Jonathan Hammond, Chief Executive of Hammonds of Knutsford said: “3 Pugs Gin combines the Ditchfield’s twin passions for their dogs and gin, creating a stand-out premium-tasting gin with a charming on-shelf appeal. 3 Pugs Gin contains absolutely no bark.”
3Pugs Signature Gin is 42% ABV, the Blackcurrant is 40% ABV and both available in 50cl bottles from Hammonds of Knutsford.
