DAM RAIDER GIN TAKES TO THE SKIES
With the aim of promoting the classic British drink of gin, combined with the unique history of Lincolnshire, Lincoln Imp Drinks Company are now celebrating the release of Dam Raider Gin – their first product to be launched with others to follow in the coming months. Business partners Richard Arnold and Alex Hull, who both grew up in Lincolnshire, are proud to introduce a new product in recognition of the county’s rich RAF heritage and significance in World War II.
Dam Raider Gin celebrates the ingenious and legendary World War II “Dambusters” raid, Operation Chastise. The cutting-edge 3D depth-effect bottle, featuring a Lancaster bomber against the background of Scampton, is the first of its kind, as is the rear of the bottle showing authentic extracts of the log book of a “Dambusters” crew member.
A citrus-based gin with a hint of spice, Dam Raider Gin stays faithful to a classic combination of flavours, resulting in a thirst-quenching and refreshing drink.
Fittingly, the Petwood Hotel in Woodhall Spa, home of the legendary RAF 617 “Dambusters” Squadron in World War II, was the venue for the eagerly anticipated launch of Dam Raider Gin. Guests enjoyed an evening sampling the product and a talk by Mike Hodgson, historian, author and founder of Thorpe Camp Visitor Centre in Tattershall Thorpe.
For every bottle of Dam Raider Gin sold, a donation will be made to Thorpe Camp (a registered charity), home of the 97, 619, 617 (following the Dams Raid) and 627 Squadrons that flew out of RAF Woodhall Spa in the 1940s.
Available to buy from Lincoln Imp Drinks Company directly or from stockists throughout the county, each individually-numbered bottle is an opportunity to own something quintessentially British.
