28th June 1969 The Stonewall Inn bar, New York: 1:20 am. The music went off, the lights came on, 205 courageous people stood. This date marks the event where our struggle for acceptance would soar on the shoulders of an underground society.
On this date, The Stonewall Inn unknowingly became the birthplace of the global gay pride movement changing the world forever as we knew it. The community fought back for our rights against oppressive policing and for acceptance. Over 50 years have passed and the struggle for acceptance and equality is still very much alive in many parts of the world.
JOE AND TOM
Joe & Tom helped create this product along with family members who produce spirits. The couple rediscovered the history of the ‘Stonewall Riots’ and wanted to help tell again the story, in so doing recognising their predecessors for their freedoms today.
Joe & Tom want to do their bit for the cause. For every bottle sold, they will donate £1 to the Stonewall Charity to continue the ongoing worldwide struggle for acceptance.
GREAT TASTING SPIRITS
Our Stonewall Gins are made in Lincolnshire UK at a small batch craft distillery. They have been loving produced after many months of testing and retesting to get the fine flavours and uniquely smooth taste. The distillery uses the finest copper reflux stills to ensure the botanicals shine through and the liquid is crystal clear.
The recipe for the London dry gin includes juniper, cardamom, orange, lemon, liquorice, almonds and finally a local coastal berry called sea buckthorn which gives the gin fine citrus almost mango notes.
Once perfected, the London dry gin this was used as a base for the tasty but not so sweet Pink Rhubarb gin by adding an authentic rhubarb flavour.
