A gin marking the end of York City’s time at Bootham Crescent has raised £2,000 for charity.
York Gin made 89 bottles of its London Dry – one for each of the individual seasons between 1932-33 and 2020-21. All sold within minutes of the sale starting at 9am on Friday 5th February.
The company then made a further 300 limited edition bottles marking the full period from 1932 to 2021. The last of these bottles has now sold.
£5 from each bottle is being donated to the Headway brain injury charity supported by ex-Minsterman Dan Parslow.
The total raised is actually £1,945, but York Gin are rounding up the difference to make the £2,000 total.
York Gin and York City have recently announced a long-term commercial partnership – and they will be announcing a special York City FC gin in the next few weeks among other initiatives.
Adam Cook, York Gin sales manager, said: “This is a fantastic start to our commercial relationship with York City. We can’t wait to get cracking on more initiatives in the coming weeks and months. And we’re delighted to have raised so much for this brilliant charity.”
