September's special spirit, Elephant Gin

Gin Clubbers got a special surprise when they opened their September Gin of the Month Boxes. Along with a trove of treats, an exclusive edition of Elephant Gin awaited them! Not just incredible in taste, the equally incredible story of Elephant Gin's origins is one that's remarkably inspirational.

Member Becky Wilson's elephant art serves as the perfect backdrop for her Gin Box.

Inspired by Africa, Elephant's co-founders are dedicated to changing the world. Elephant Gin donate 15% of all profits to two charitable foundations working to protect elephants across the continent. Could there be a more fitting gin to unveil on International Charity Day? Additionally, each batch of Elephant Gin is named after a real elephant that is either protected by one of these foundations, or that has played an important role in the history of Africa. Mshale, the Craft Gin Club batch's elephant, is just one of these gentle giants. You can help Elephant Gin and elephants like Mshale by donating to the organisations they support, Big Life Foundation and Space For Elephants.

The gin itself is a limited edition, made to a recipe developed exclusively for Craft Gin Club Members. Featuring several exotic African botanicals, like Buchu and Baobab, the taste is complex - but strikingly smooth. Read more about this exclusive gin and find out how to make the perfect serve below.
