We have been thinking of you all especially at Christmas this year and can only wish you all a very Happy New Year and a brighter 2021!
Despite everything that has affected us all, the team here at Fordington Gin have kept very busy – busy making new and lovely gins and winning wonderful awards!
The fabulous weather we had during the spring and summer brought us an abundance of fruit which allowed us to made some fabulous Apple and Blackberry Gin and an Orange and Elderflower Gin – both have sold very well and we had some great feedback, we will be making some more next year!
Even though most of our shows and events have been cancelled, we stayed in touch with you through Zoom, social media and messaging – a big thank you to Emma from EmmPower Sales & Marketing, to Felicity for all her patience with me and for despatching the online sales and to the lovely Blossom from the Petal Press www.thepetalpress.co.uk. All have made Fordington Gin fabulous and have continued to stay with us – we really have felt very supported. A huge thank you also to all of you who have kept us going and continued to enjoy our gin.
We have been busy winning awards – Gold at the Women’s Wine and Spirits Awards, Gold at the China Wine and Spirits Awards, Gold at The Taste of the West Awards - and awarded by the UK Spirits Alliance for our contribution to the Community during Lockdown.
We sponsored the Successful Women in Business Awards for the best Independent Food and Wine Outlet – won by the lovely Sally and Lou from Bliss Foods in Swanage.
Next year the Charities we are supporting will be
School in a Bag and
We will be launching a Premium Gin – as if Fordington can be improved upon! – it will be an even more special gin with our most wonderful magical twist.
We greatly appreciate your love and support, and thank you again for all the feedback – it does keep us going and we work hard to constantly evolve, making Fordington Gin a great experience.
Wishing you all a happy New Year. In the prevailing circumstances, do your best to relax and enjoy the season and we look forward to staying in touch next year.
All the very best from the Fordington Gin Team.
