Sam with Molly Ollys Pink GinWarwick-based childrens charity Molly Ollys is celebrating its 10th year with the launch of its own pink gin and last night at the distillery we hosted a fantastic launch evening for the product, which was proudly produced by us here at the distillery.

The Charity teamed up with us to create a bespoke, small batch craft gin with notes of raspberries, blackberries and Mediterranean citrus. We love experimenting with different flavours to create new gins. It was therefore an absolute pleasure to receive the call from such a good cause as Molly Ollys who entrusted us to help them craft a bespoke premium gin for them. We are very pleased with the end result and we hope it proves a great success in raising important funds for the charity.

The Charity was founded in 2012 by Rachel and Tim Ollerenshaw after their daughter, Molly died from a rare kidney cancer at the age of 8 years old. The Charity emotionally supports children 0-18 who have a life-threatening illness by delivering wishes to make them smile and with their Olly The Brave therapeutic toy lion and books.

Rachel said; “Gin is such a popular gift that it seemed a good idea to offer our very own ‘Molly Ollys Pink Gin’. We were keen to ensure it was a high quality product and it made sense to work with Shakespeare Distillery to create our own premium product, as they are well-established and well-known for their artisan gins. We chose to make it pink because our logo is pink and we know some supporters like to donate to the Charity by purchasing something from us so we hope the gin will be a winner. Last night’s gin launch was a real success, with many people buying a bottle as a Christmas gift for family or friends.”

40 guests were invited to the Molly Ollys Pink Gin launch last night where they got to sample the gin, have a tour of the distillery as well as having the opportunity to buy a bottle.
