We are working with Chesterfield-based distillers, Derbyshire Distillery, to produce their new Eleventh Hour Gin.
Following the success of last years’ campaign, Derbyshire Distillery have re-released the Eleventh Gin range with brand new flavours and bottle design. They have also created a special Centenary Celebration Gin to mark the 100th anniversary of the RBL in 2021.
£3 from the sale of each bottle will be donated to help support the Armed Forces community.

Eleventh Hour Gin was the brainchild of ex-serviceman Richard Aspinall, now sales manager at the distillery. Richard has first-hand experience of the Royal British Legion’s support. Having served in the British Army for five years, he says:
"I have lost good friends and have seen how some injuries can change the life of those that served alongside me.
"The Royal British Legion is always there for the Armed Forces community and I was keen to do something to help, especially this year where every donation and every poppy really does count."
Phil Meakin, a founding director at the distillery, said: "The Royal British Legion has been very supportive of the new gin from the outset. It is such a worthy cause and we’re delighted that Richard took the initiative to develop the idea that will help to support the charity that he will be a part of for the rest of his life."
