BeauFort Spirit deploys Land Rover fleet for local deliveries

Fans of BeauFort Spirit's smoked gin can now get it delivered to their front door - thanks to a fleet of repurposed Land Rovers.

The craft produer has deployed the 4x4s to deliver its products to customers around its home in Broadway, Worcestershire, with bottles also being taken over county borders into Gloucestershire and Warwickshire.

Founder Leo Crabtree said: "Like everyone else, we've been needing to play the hand we have, and we are lucky enough to have these vehicles at our disposal. Originally destined for numerous food and music festivals this summer, which of course didn't happen, we have repurposed them to deliver our drinks around our local area.

"As a small business, it is essential for us to keep moving and to be proactive in these challenging times, whilst at the same time keeping a careful eye on the health of our customers and ourselves."

BeauFort Fifty-Seven Smoked Sipping Gin (57% ABV) pays homage to the Admirality's 'gunpowder proof' test and combines ingredients including smoked oak and hickory and Szechuan pepper to create the illusion for the nose of smouldering gunpowder.

To buy the gin, and arrange a delivery by Land Rover within 25 miles of Broadway, go to www.beaufortspirit.com
