English Garden Cocktail With Cooper King Gin

Sharing is caring!

Advertisement Feature – English Garden Cocktail – Natural History Museum & Cooper King Gin

The Natural History Museum have joined forces with Cooper King Distillery to create Discovery Gin a carbon neutral gin that’s just perfect in our English Garden Cocktail.

The Natural History Museum have pledged to cut emissions to net zero by 2035 and have joined forces with Cooper King Distillery in Yorkshire to create a fabulous carbon-negative gin to help spread the message!

Discovery Gin is carbon-negative! For every 70cl bottle produced, they use renewable energy and an amazing 1kg of carbon dioxide equivalent is removed from the atmosphere!

Add to this the fact that £1 from every bottle sold is donated to the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust the Cooper King Distillery’s tree-planting charity partner!

Even the packaging is sustainable produced! With the bottle made from 55% recycled glass.

And we kinda love that they’ve called it Discovery Gin! After all when you’re in the museum discovering is exactly what you’ll be doing.
