Introducing Wooden Spoon Knock-On Gin: Cheers to Making a Difference!

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our very own Wooden Spoon Knock-On Gin, a unique and flavourful gin crafted to support a noble cause. Since 2011, Wooden Spoon Merseyside has funded over 100 projects, helping 10,000 children and young people in Merseyside live their best lives despite the challenges of disability and deprivation. Profits from the sales of this bespoke gin will continue to fund these essential projects, creating a lasting impact on the community.

The Story Behind the Gin

The idea for Wooden Spoon Knock-On Gin was born in Merseyside by Gill Burns MBE, former England international rugby union player and Merseyside Regional Committee member. Gill set up a gin tasting evening working with local distillery, The Handmade Gin Company, where a group of our dedicated members selected their favourite option from a range of unique botanicals. The unanimous choice features distinctive botanicals, including bog-myrtle, creating a flavour that is both distinctive and delicious. This handcrafted gin is more than just a delightful drink; it’s a symbol of our community’s generosity and commitment to supporting children in need.

The Auction: Secure Your Special Numbered Bottle

To celebrate the launch, Wooden Spoon Merseyside are hosting an exciting auction where you can bid for a bottle from the first batch of 100, each featuring a special number from 1-100. Each bottle is priced at £35 plus your bid amount, with all proceeds going directly to Wooden Spoon. Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to own a unique bottle with a charming numbered souvenir spoon.

Event: General Sale at Wooden Spoon Merseyside Legends Lunch

If you miss out on the auction, don’t worry! They will be available online soon. Or join us on Saturday, 22 June 2024, at the Wooden Spoon Merseyside Legends Lunch 2024 at Firwood Waterloo. This event is a fantastic opportunity to meet fellow supporters and celebrate our achievements.

A Knock-On Effect

The generosity of our supporters has already helped fund projects like Olivia’s Stage, a playground upgrade at Chesnut Lodge and a therapy room at Stanley School, whose pupils’ pictures proudly adorn our gin label.
