Lone Wolf reveals limited edition gin to support wolf conservation

21 June, 2017

Lone Wolf, the Brewdog-backed distillery, has released a gin to raise funds for the UK Wolf Conservation Trust.

The gin was created in collaboration with The Wolf bar in Birmingham and the partnership symbolises Lone Wolf’s commitment to collaborating with its community.

The limited edition Wolf Pack gin is available through Lone Wolf’s online shop and in The Wolf in Birmingham, and initially only 70 bottles will be available. All profits will go to the UK Wolf Conservation Trust, which works to protect and conserve wild wolves and their habitats through education.

Sallie from The Wolf said: “Making gin has been such a fantastic experience. The guys from Lone Wolf Spirits welcomed us, shared their knowledge and hopefully it has resulted in something we will all enjoy. As we have all discovered, it is better when us wolves stick together. So when Lone Wolf asked us which charity we would like to support The UK Wolf Conservation Trust (UKWCT) seemed like the perfect choice. We hope everyone enjoys the Wolf Pack Gin.”

Francesca Macilroy, UKWCT, said: “The profits from the Wolf Pack Gin will be split between two of the projects we support, one in Croatia and one in Bulgaria. Our Croatia project monitors wolf populations which is invaluable to providing information which will support wolf conservation in the future.

"UKWCTThe second project, Balkani Wildlife Society in Bulgaria, is a non-profit organisation whose main aims are to study conservation and restoration of flora and fauna in natural ecosystems and to provide livestock guardian dogs. These dogs live with livestock and protect them from predators such as wolves, which ultimately helps to ease tension and prevent conflict between the wolf and human population.

“We really appreciate the support for our projects from this gin, it is a refreshing change from a world that rarely considers the wild populations over making maximum profit.”

Talking terroir

When Bordeaux was in fashion, it seemed almost logical that we should fetishise winemakers. Here were people responsible for brilliant acts of blending, across large estates and multiple grape varieties, including superstars such as cabernet sauvignon and merlot. These days, fashion has moved on and pinot noir is ascendant. As a result, the star of the winemaker has fallen and we find ourselves following a new star in the sky: terroir.
