Gin lovers will now be able to get their hands on a limited edition bottle of gin produced to raise vital funds for a Hillington-based hospice.  

WhataHoot, a distillery based in King’s Lynn, has teamed-up with The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House to produce a dry gin.

Each bottle sold will see £5 donated to the hospice in a bid to help support its work in the community.

The gin is available to purchase from today (Friday) from the WhataHoot website and at its distillery in King Street for £30.

Hand-distilled at the distillery, the gin is “a refreshing blend of traditional botanicals including juniper, coriander and citrus, perfectly balanced with the iconic Norfolk flavours of sea-samphire and lavender for an incredibly smooth finish” said a hospice spokesman.

Anglia Labels paid for the materials for the gin bottle labels and Prontaprint designed them free of charge.

Nicky Crown, WhataHoot owner, said: “We wanted to support The Norfolk Hospice as it’s a local charity very close to our hearts. 

“They do an amazing job caring for patients undergoing palliative and end-of-life care, as well as their family and friends, and they are invaluable to the local community. We are delighted to be able to help.”

Lyndsay Carter, hospice chief executive, said it had been wonderful to work with the team at WhataHoot.

“Their enthusiasm, hard work and generosity has been fantastic. We are extremely grateful for their support following such a challenging year and we look forward to developing our partnership,” she said.
