Staffordshire-based Nelson’s Distillery & School have begun selling the long awaited Nelson’s Gluggle Jug Gin.

Created in collaboration with Craft Gin Club, the famed gin subscription club which successfully won the investment of Dragon’s Den’s Sarah Willingham, Gluggle Jug Gin featured in their June Gin of the Month box, and sold out within just 1 day.

Known as ‘The Spirit of Staffordshire’, Gluggle Jug Gin is a smooth blend of botanicals including green cardamom, sweet orange, grapefruit, lemon, hibiscus, lime, pink peppercorns and star anise, giving it a vibrantly citrus, lively flavour.

This bold beverage is rendered even more special given its unique vessel: it comes in an elegant white ceramic bottle created by Wade Ceramics, celebrating the heritage of craftsmanship in the Staffordshire Potteries and the 250-year history of the Gluggle Jug, also giving the gin its name.
