On September 30th, we are transforming The Oast House, Spinningfields, into a vibrant apple orchard which will offer 500 passers-by a free Caorunn G&T for a truly beautiful crisp, fresh taste of the Highlands.
Our apple orchard will be brimming with trees for one day during the Manchester Food and Drink Festival. The fragrant fruit is one of the five Scottish botanicals, along with dandelion, heather, bog myrtle and rowan berry, that are infused into the handcrafted Scottish gin. Caorunn is uniquely served with thin red apple slices to create an invigorating, clean, sweet, full-bodied and aromatic taste for a long-lasting dry and crisp finish.
We have also teamed up with City of Trees to create the unique orchard. The innovative movement, set to re-invigorate Greater Manchester’s landscape by planting three million trees, one for every man, woman and child that lives in the City Region. Following their time at the Oast House, Spinningfields, the trees are being donated to Snipe Clough, Oldham, where they will be planted to form part of a new community orchard.
Ibolya, our brand manager says:
“The Oast House, Spinningfields, is the perfect backdrop to home the Caorunn apple orchard. We hope to brighten up the day for gin fans with a taster of our handcrafted gin during the Manchester Food and Drink Festival. The fact that the trees will remain in Greater Manchester following our event means a lot to us to show our support for the growth of green spaces within urban areas.”
Kevin Wigley, City of Trees, comments: “This is a really exciting project for us to work on and is a chance for gin-lovers to get close to nature in an urban environment. We hope this pop-up orchard will show people how trees can really make a space and inspire more urban greenery to help transform our cities and towns”.
