The new flavour ‘Wrekin Alpine’ has been unveiled by Ironbridge based independent spirits retailer Moonshine & Fuggles which will be donating £3 from every bottle sold to the Shropshire Hills Trust.

Flavours to savour include Wrekin pine needles, pine nuts and woodland herbs.

Derek Bowen, of Moonshine & Fuggles, says: “We are really proud of our latest edition called Wrekin Alpine.

"This is something that will stand out from the 300-plus gins we have on our table in store.

"It’s refreshingly piney with a herbaceous and creamy mouth feel and a long dry finish.

“I am so pleased that Shropshire Hills Trust agreed to work with us.

"The conservation of our beautiful local iconic landscape is key and I am pleased that we are able contribute with a little help from our customers.”

As with their previous gin, Broseley Pink, the gin specialist based in The Square, Ironbridge, will be supporting a local charity.

The Shropshire Hills Trust supports work in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to conserve and enhance the hills which covering almost a quarter of the county.

Anthony Morgan, of Shropshire Hills Trust, adds: “When Derek contacted me with the proposition of teaming up I was surprised but thrilled that he thought of us.

"The Wrekin is Shropshire’s iconic hill and we work to retain the quality of the landscape.”
