Merseyside distillery raises over £19,000 for charity

A limited-edition gin released by Merseyside distillery Tappers has raised a total of £19,520 for charity, after a sell-out year.

 

The family-run business partnered with Sir Kenny Dalglish in March 2021 to release Dalglish 7 Gin, celebrating 70 years of a football legend. Every bottle sold raised funds for Sir Kenny’s chosen charity – The Marina Dalglish Appeal.

 

Only 700 bottles were produced in total, to a recipe that was inspired by Sir Kenny’s fond memories of Scotland. Distilled with Tappers’ signature botanicals, alongside fresh berries and orange peel, Dalglish 7 Gin is vibrant and fruity with hints of strawberry and citrus, and a silky-smooth finish.

 

The Marina Dalglish Appeal has one simple aim: to make a difference to people with cancer on Merseyside and beyond. Since it was founded by Sir Kenny and his wife Marina, Lady Dalglish in 2005, the charity has helped thousands of families on their cancer journey by contributing to pioneering medical projects, and by providing psychological support to breast cancer patients.

 

Tappers’ Founder, Steve, said: “An opportunity to work with the one and only King Kenny – local legend and national hero – was an absolute honour and privilege. We’re thrilled that, with the support of Tappers and Dalglish fans alike, we were able to raise £19,520 to help the vital work of the Dalglish family and The Marina Dalglish Appeal.”
