Vigil Gin launched for We Love Manchester appeal

Zymurgorium has launched Vigil Gin in aid of the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.

The Manchester distillery said sales of Vigil Gin ‘Stay strong our kid’ Emergency Edition had gone so well that the founders – brothers Aaron and Callum Darke – have been struggling to keep up with demand. 

Proceeds made by Zymurgorium and its distribution partner, Hammonds of Knutsford, will go towards the appeal with the aim of raising as much as they can for victims of the recent terror attack. 

The gin has flavours of summer fruits, including strawberries, blackberries, currants and raspberries, as well as flower blossoms: orange, lime, rose, vanilla and elderflower. 

Aaron Darke said: “Considering the victims will never experience the blossoms and summer of this year it’s a poignant message but gin literally brings people together and it’s just a little something to keep us stronger. I suppose you could call it a bit of ‘Manc Courage’.”

The gin costs £40 for a 50cl bottle.
