1883 GIN | Magpies launch brand new gin

Chorley FC has teamed up with a local distillery to muscle in on Britain’s ever-growing gin market. The Magpies have partnered up with Speakeasy Spirits UK Limited, who are based in Euxton to produce our very own 1883 gin.

1883 is a high end export strength gin - marrying the flavours of juniper, coriander, orris, angelica, cassia, clove, nutmeg, cardamom, lemon and elderberry.

Marc Davidson, from Chorley FC said: “Following the success of the Thirsty Magpie Beer Festival and the obvious interest in gin, we wanted to develop a bespoke drink of our own to share with the Magpie family." 

He added: “Each bottle will have a specific batch and bottle number, making each one sold personal to the individual. This is a great chance for people to own a truly unique product and would make the ideal gift for football fan or gin lovers alike, especially with Christmas just around the corner. Plus there’s the added kudos of having a bottle from the first batch!"

Mick Fairless, Director of Speakeasy Spirits UK Limited said: “Last year me and my wife ended up in a distillery in Manchester, made a bottle of our own gin each and thought that it was rather nice. Afterwards we started to create gin for our friends and family. From then our company was born in August 2016 and since then we’ve created more than 70 different gins.”

He added: “Gin is a drink that is clearly bucking the trend and I can’t see it stopping for a number of years. It’s such a versatile spirit that brings joy to others - which is our ultimate aim. I’m absolutely delighted to be working with Chorley FC and the gin we have created with them is spectacular.”

Throughout this journey we’ve been helped by Kev Hoyle at Iced, who produced a number of designs, finishing with a simple but stylish image to perfectly represent the spirit of 1883.
