A gin that makes a difference 

Hi, we’re Mike and Sue Bearcroft and we’re the creators of Land of Saints Organic Gin.

We’ve always had a desire to do something positive for the world, which has led us to work with many charities over the years. However, it has long been our aim to set up our own project that allows us to personally make a difference to the footprint we leave on this planet. 

That desire, coupled with a conversation we had with the owners of a successful gin retailer last Christmas, sparked the idea of creating an organic Cornish gin that could assist a conservation charity in their essential work.

This idea would soon lead to the creation of Land of Saints Organic Gin and a partnership with Fauna & Flora International – the world’s oldest conservation charity.

The product

With help from our distillers, we experimented with a host of organic botanicals; enlisting a panel of tasters, covering a wide age range within the gin trade and general public.

From the information we received, we were able to produce a unique, natural blend of thirteen botanicals, including coriander seeds, cardamom pods, pink peppercorns, ginger root, dried rose buds, hyssop, orange peel, camomile, violet leaves, blueberries, nutmeg and orris root. The result is an exceptionally smooth, fresh and citrusy gin with a good level of juniper that is perfect for any time of year.

Our branding reflects both the quality of our product and the county in which it is made. A map of Cornwall features prominently on our label with an eye-catching bottle design that captures thoughts of the sea. Cornwall is the home of 69 Saints, so calling our gin "Land of Saints" was the perfect choice. 

What makes us different

Having created an exceptional product that we know customers will love, we’ve partnered with Fauna & Flora International, whose work helps to save species from extinction and habitats from destruction. In order to support their vital global work a minimum 50 pence donation will be made to the charity for every bottle sold.

We have also become members of the Organisation for Responsible Businesses and as a truly organic brand, have passed the rigorous scrutiny of The Soil Association.

So why are we crowdfunding?

As a social enterprise, we won’t be paying dividends and any surplus will be invested in the work of Fauna & Flora International or similar charities. That enables us to fully invest our time, money and energy into making this an exceptional product for our customers.

We need your help to raise the money required for the production, marketing, packaging, and distribution of the gin - all vital components for a successful launch.

Land of Saints Gin is not just about enjoying a delicious drink, but also about helping the planet. With this ethos in mind, however much you pledge (in addition to the different rewards on offer) we will plant and nurture a tree on your behalf, sending you a certificate as proof.

The rewards

Whether your pledge is large or small, we’ve got a reward to suit you.

As a thank you for your support, you’ll have the chance to choose from rewards that include bottles of Land of Saints Gin, branded bamboo pens and even invites to our launch party, where Karina Ramage - one of the UK’s latest singing sensations – will be performing.

Thank you again for all your support,

Mike and Sue Bearcroft
