Nelson’s Distillery & School announces another celebrity partnership.
The Staffordshire-based craft distillery has linked up with Mr. Christmas himself,
Dr. Roy Wood, to create an exceptionally jolly, new spirit.
Known for its celebrity collaborations, Nelson’s has recently worked with two-star Michelin Chef Michel Roux Jr. And for this November, has managed to pull off yet another cracker! Now teamed up with Wizzard frontman, Dr. Roy Wood, the distillery has produced a holiday gin that truly packs a party punch.
Christmas Cheer is a merry mix of festive flavours – deep powerful hits of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves sweetened with Madagascan vanilla then lightened with a touch of rose. At 57% ABV, the heightened alcohol perfectly marries with the intense flavours, offering a gin that is well-rounded and incredibly delicious.
Local Staffordshire & Derbyshire celebrity Roy was approached by Neil Harrison, Nelson’s founder and Master Distiller, to produce his very own craft spirit just in time for the season of giving.
Dr. Wood attended Nelson’s Gin & Vodka School at Uttoxeter to experience its 5-Star rated distilling experience, where he handpicked and formulated his original recipe. This was then distilled in Nelson’s custom-built still, Victory, for an exciting one-off production.
"I was wonderfully surprised to be invited to create my very own gin by Nelson's. They even allowed me the creative freedom to design its label.
A few years ago, I had the honour of performing a concert for the SAS and discovered that their tipple of choice had always been the 57% ABV Nelson's Navy Strength Gin. So we thought that it would only be apt, to follow their guidance, and make our Christmas Cheer gin at 57% ABV as well!
I had an interesting day at Nelson's Distillery, and was absolutely intrigued by the wide variety of ingredients that could be included and mixed into the final blend.
And because we have named it Christmas Cheer, we saw it best fit to perfectly capture and combine the different festive flavours of all things Christmas into a bottle.
We truly hope that you all enjoy it, and toast to the holidays, nearly as much as we do."
Neil Harrison, the Founder and Master Distiller of Nelsons Distillery & School, and revered chef – is now the author of his very own recipe book!
Neil’s love of food saw him train as a chef at Birmingham College of Food, where he gained an education in the art of cooking. Alongside his studies, Neil worked at the college’s Atrium restaurants, simultaneously acquiring in-house experience.
Upon graduating, he soon started work at the luxurious The Feathers in Shropshire. And not long after, opened a highly successful Australian-themed restaurant called Jumbucks, right in the city of London.
This allowed him the chance and freedom to finally get creative and push the boundaries of his menus. Neil’s love of experimenting with menus blossomed and very quickly, led to him designing his very own alcoholic spirits.
Though starting out as a simple hobby, it was to his great surprise that Nelson’s Gin became a huge hit!
Neil then took it as a sign to open his own Gin & Vodka School to share his knowledge of gin and gin-making with fellow gin lovers and more importantly, countless potential gin converts out there!
Today, Nelson’s Distillery & School has proudly grown into a worldwide brand. We have opened schools with luxury hotels in the Philippines, major cities in the UK, and more soon all over the world.
We are excited for what the future holds and hope to see you all right there with us, wherever Nelson’s may bravely venture off to next.
