Staffordshire Distillery — part of Derbyshire Spirit Group of Partners, based at Markham Vale near Chesterfield — has become a corporate partner of Help For Heroes.
Under the terms of the partnership the distillery will produce a wide range of branded spirits that will help raise essential funds for this charity that supports wounded veterans, service personnel and their families.
Staffordshire Distillery’s new charity range (pictured left) includes 18 gins (including a traditional London Dry); six vodkas, six rums and one whisky. The sale of each bottle will generate up to £8 for the charity and the company is looking to generate £50,000 for Help For Heroes over the next 12 months.
Guest of honour at the launch event was Rachel Williamson — the first female captain of Team UK at the Invictus Games and an ambassador for Help For Heroes — who will help promote and support the new corporate partnership with the distillery.
Rachel Evans, Staffordshire Distillery’s founding director, was also joined by Helena Burley, partnerships manager at Help For Heroes and Jonty Powis, an ex-nuclear submarine captan, along with the directors and employees from Derbyshire Spirit Group of Partners.
Commenting on the new corporate partnership Rachel Evans said: “We are delighted to be supporting one of the most important charities that supports service personnel, veterans and their families.
“We are also very excited to be working with Rachel Williamson whose involvement will be pivotal to the success of this fundraising campaign.
“We hope that this new partnership will help generate much-needed funds for the charity that receives almost no government funding.”
The new range of spirits are priced at £29.99 per bottle, which went on sale on 4 August.
