Captain Tom launches a gin with Yorkshire’s Otterbeck Distillery

The founders of Otterbeck Distillery are proud to announce a partnership with family friend Captain Sir Tom Moore: Captain Sir Tom’s Gin is here! 

Yorkshireman Captain Sir Tom first met 12-time Motorcycle Trials World Champion, and co-owner of Otterbeck Distillery, Dougie Lampkin whilst making the ITV film, ‘A Day in the life of Captain Tom.’ They discovered a mutual passion for the Yorkshire Dales and vintage motorbikes and a great friendship was made. The war veteran was keen to see Dougie’s collection of bikes at his home and whilst there took the chance to visit the distillery, founded by Dougie, his wife Nicola and friends. Captain Sir Tom joked he’d like to have his own gin one day – and after many a taste test and reminiscence about his childhood growing up in Yorkshire, Sir Tom’s gin was born: a gin to celebrate family and friendships. 

For Captain Sir Tom, his family and Otterbeck Distillery, the gin provides a great opportunity to support wonderful causes as proceeds from every bottle sold will be donated to The Captain Tom Foundation

Nicola Lampkin, Founder, Otterbeck Distillery says: “It is an amazing privilege to be working with Captain Sir Tom and his foundation which supports some incredible charities; We’re delighted to be able to do our bit to help support such worthwhile causes. Captain Sir Tom has captured the imagination of the world and we’re proud to have distilled a very special gin with a very special man.” 

Hannah Ingram-Moore, daughter of Captain Sir Tom, adds: “On behalf of Captain Sir Tom and family we are delighted to be in partnership with Otterbeck Distillery and sincerely look forward to our journey together. We feel an electric connection to Yorkshire so working with a gin based here is so special to us as we continue to build our family legacy and celebrate our heritage.”
