Did you know there’s a new spirit in town; The Crafty Badger from Branton is launching ‘Doncaster Dry Gin’, a limited-batch craft gin created lovingly in their micro-distillery using traditional methods and locally-sourced botanicals for a unique taste of Doncaster.
Carl Lindley A.K.A ‘The Badger’ himself, is passionate about launching a product that will resonate with local gin lovers as well as enthusiasts the world over, conducting much painstaking research (although I could find some very eager volunteers) by sampling many craft gins and quality tonics in order to go on and determine taste notes that would please the palate of any aficionado.
But now, it’s over to you Doncaster, Carl needs your help to bring this dream alive and has launched a Crowdfunder page as a call to arms to those that would like to make a donation in return for various rewards depending on the amount pledged. On the Doncaster Dry Gin (DDG) Crowdfunder page Carl writes:
“I now really need your help to create our micro-distillery and in turning this dream into a reality. Your kind assistance will also create necessary funds to enable the purchase of base materials, products & equipment, compliance with HMIC, distillation of prototype batch distils leading to a refined finished product, DDG branding & marketing - to name but a few.
To ensure value for money, I successfully applied to Crowdfunder and won a competition to secure a starting, match-funded £1K, which will be used to cover the rent cost of the distillery premises for our 1st year.
Doncaster is an amazing place to live or visit, and full of friendly, passionate & innovative people. Doncaster Dry Gin aims to showcase Doncaster's qualities, historical importance and heritage, and you could be part of our exciting first steps”
