Limited editions of whisky, rum and gin to commemorate the Falklands War and raise funds for SAMA82
DropZone Brewery, a veteran-owned business that supports ex-servicemen, has launched three limited-edition spirits to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Falklands War and raise money for charity. All proceeds from the launch will be donated to the South Atlantic Medal Association 82 (SAMA82), formed by veterans of the Falklands conflict.
The launch will include the brewery’s three core spirits, whisky, rum and gin. DropZone Brewery releases 258 bottles of each spirit, paying tribute to the number of people who died during the conflict.
Sean Crawford, Founder of DropZone Brewery, said: “The Falklands War is of immense significance to the veterans community and it is important that we remember these 258 people who tragically lost their lives, as well as those who were injured in the conflict.
“Here at DropZone, our primary goal is to raise awareness and funds for the veteran community and we hope our limited edition spirits will do just that.
“SAMA82 is a fantastic charity and well deserves the money we will be raising through this latest launch and we look forward to supporting them in any way we can in the future.”
DropZone Brewery is a veteran-owned business that brews beer, spirits and coffee for the benefit of service people across the UK.
The Copper Rivet Distillery has also launched a new spirit to commemorate the conflict. The distillery raises funds for the Royal Navy Royal Marines Charity with the release of Dockyard Gin – Recognition ’82; a special edition Navy Strength Gin created to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Falklands War.
