As the Friends head into the final months of our 40th anniversary, we have reflected on our history and have discovered many reasons to raise our glasses in good cheer.  In order to mark this milestone, we have partnered with Big Tree Gin Distillery to create our very own commemorative grapefruit, olive leaf and rosemary flavoured gin, presented in stunning etched glass bottles designed and painted by our botanic art teacher David Reynolds, harkening to the paintings of the Friends’ botanical illustrators. 


The gin makes a perfect gift for your gin loving friends.   And the bottle makes a beautiful display or vase after the gin has been enjoyed.
