Cambridge Distillery enters travel retail
English gin producer Cambridge Distillery has made its debut in travel retail at Gatwick Airport.
Cambridge Distillery launched at WH Smith’s new Curiocity stores in Gatwick’s North and South Terminals, which opened on 29 March.
Leon Pullin, head of sales for Cambridge Distillery, said: “Remember that time travelling to the airport wishing you had purchased a gift during your travels? We have all been there.
“Curiocity has now become the perfect platform to reach passengers who wish to delight their loved ones with a luxurious gin gift.
“The first stores have launched in Gatwick North and South Terminals with the intention to expand into other key transport hubs.
“These well-equipped stores have filled the gap in the last-minute travel gifting space, with a perfectly curated range, encapsulating the nations beloved produce from iconic locations.”
A selection of gins will be available at both stores, including the distillery’s 10th Anniversary Tasting Pack, filled with 12 gins.
The 10th Anniversary Tasting Pack contains 50ml bottles of Cambridge Dry Gin, and the ‘world first’ Truffle, Japanese and Anty Gins.
Gins from the distillery’s English Herbarium Collection will also be on offer. The range is made with local, seasonal botanicals grown in the meadows surrounding the Cambridgeshire distillery.
In addition to The English Herbarium and the Cambridge Distillery Collection, the pack contains four of the brand’s most popular limited edition gin prototypes released over the last decade.
Among the prototypes are Afternoon Tea Gin, designed to be paired with the traditional British dining experience; and seasonal release Spiced Gin, a festive bottling with notes of orange, cinnamon, cloves and ginger.
The pack also contains Three Seasons Gin, which was created to be the key ingredient in a Martini.
Each of the 12 gins have been distilled with botanicals from across the world, including the English meadows of Grantchester, Alba in Italy, and Japan.
