The SGA Charitable Trust is delighted to announce its new partnership with award winning Angus artisan drinks company, Gin Bothy, and Angus Glens Moorland Group (AGMG).
The partnership deal will see £1 from every bottle of new Gin Bothy Sloe Gin split between the groups to help highlight the benefits responsible gamekeeping has for conservation, cultural heritage and supporting rural communities.
Gin Bothy owner Kim Cameron grew up in a rural community herself and has fond memories of shoot-day beating in Glenisla as a child.
The company wanted to mark its appreciation of the role guardians of the land play in shaping Scotland’s iconic countryside.
Gin Bothy prides itself in producing botanical ‘hip flask’ gins, perfect for hill, river or lunch bothy. Already highly popular with the hunting, shooting and fishing community, they also produce Gunshot and Speycast gins, hand-bottled and numbered at their premises outside Kirriemuir.
The new gin will be launched at GWCT Scottish Game Fair, with Kim offering’ tasters’ at the SGA tent for visitors, along with SGA and AGMG reps.
Bottles will also be on sale at the Food Hall.
The SGA Charitable Trust intends to use donated funds for education purposes, demonstrating the role predator management can play in sustaining endangered wading species such as Curlew.
Also on the SGA stand this year will be representatives from North Highland College UHI, Thurso, and stand regulars, CIC Trophy Measuring UK.
