he Merseyside-based Gin Brand, Tappers are partnering with Football Legend, Sir Kenny Dalglish to launch a limited-edition gin, Dalglish 7, celebrating 70 years of the football legend. For every bottle sold, Tappers will donate to Sir Kenny’s chosen charity, The Marina Dalglish Appeal. Since 2016, The Tappers Gin family-run distillery has been Reviving the Art of gin at their seaside home on the Wirral Peninsula. Independent through and through, Tappers are dedicated to handcrafting distinctly complex gins that stay true to that delicate art. Partnering with Sir Kenny Dalglish on this limited-edition gin was a no-brainer for the founder, Steve Tapril, “An opportunity to work with the one and only King Kenny – local legend and national hero – is an absolute honour and privilege. We’re really pleased to support the incredible charitable work of the Dalglish family and The Marina Dalglish Appeal through this exciting partnership.”
Launching on March 4th, 700 bottles of Dalglish 7 will be made available to purchase. Dalglish 7 is inspired by Sir Kenny’s fond memories of Scotland and is distilled with Tapper's signature botanicals, alongside fresh berries and orange peel. The gin is vibrant with fruity notes on the nose that give way to a light, sweet flavour on the palate with hints of strawberry and citrus, followed by a silky-smooth finish.
A donation from every bottle of gin sold will go to The Marina Dalglish appeal. The charity 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. Marina Dalglish had this to say about the partnership, “I love Tappers Gin, and not only because they’re from Merseyside, but because they’re unique in what they do. I couldn’t think of a better way to support The MDA and celebrate Kenny’s 70th!”
Celebrating his 70th birthday this year, Sir Kenny is excited to be partnering with Tappers, “I really enjoyed taking a walk down memory lane to create this special Tappers gin for Marina’s charity. Thank you to everyone for your support!” There are two iterations of the limited-edition gin available: The Collector’s Edition and The Supporter’s Edition.
• Collector’s Edition £250 - Sir Kenny has hand-signed seventy bottles to commemorate this very special occasion. Each bottle will arrive packaged in a beautiful presentation box, and Tappers will donate all proceeds to The MDA for each bottle sold.
• Supporter’s Edition £70 – The remainder of the limited-edition bottles will arrive complete with a luxury commemorative bag, and £10 from each sale will be donated to The MDA.
The signed and limited release bottles are available for pre-order now at www.tappersgin.com, shipping from Sir Kenny’s 70th Birthday, the 4th of March 2021.
