Hedgepig Gin Giveaway

Hedgepig Gin

Just in time for Christmas, the team behind Pinkster Gin has launched two new flavours of their small batch fruit gin liqueur, Hedgepig and they are reserving a bottle of their Cambridge Gage Gin for one lucky reader. 

Cambridge Gage Gin


Hedgepig Fruit Gin Liqueur



Cambridge Gage is a member of the plum family and Hedgepig make their gin using gage from local orchards or foraged from East Anglian hedgerows.The fruit is smaller and sweeter than plums and it makes for a really fruity gin.

This the perfect gin to serve this Christmas and new year, as a wee tipple before dinner; served at the end of a meal with a cheeseboard or pudding; or whizzed up into a cocktail.



And the best part about this gin, apart from how good it is?

50p is donated to the The British Hedgehog Preservation Society.  Founded in 1982, the charity offers help and advice to those with sick, injured or orphaned hedgehogs.  Patrons include Ann Widdecombe, Ben Fogle, and Twiggy.

Founder Stephen Marsh says “The plight of the hedgehog makes for desperate reading. In rural areas, numbers have fallen by half over the past two decades. These snuffly little fellows have a special place in people’s appreciation of nature and as a business rooted in the countryside, we’re delighted to be supporting the fine work of the unsung heroes at the British Hedgehog Preservation Society. Every little counts.”

British Hedgehog Preservation Society Donation Badge

  1. I used to think I didn't like gin for boos of my adult life but finally discovered at around 40 that it's the tonic I don't like! I've been making up for lost time ever since! I love fruit liqueurs so love the sound of these fruity guns. And I love that they donate to protect and help hedgehogs. I have a friend who is very active both in rescuing them and raising awareness.
