July 2017 - British Connection with Hannover Gin

We are thrilled to announce a new partnership with German gin maker Joerma Biernath at HANNOVER Gin. Like Foodpioneers, HANNOVER Gin is putting social aspects at the heart of their business i.e. by taking ordinary people into the countryside to learn about and collect herbs that ultimately go into the gin one drinks together.

The connection between Hannover and Britain goes back many centuries - it is now distilled into a bottle called 'British Connection'. This is our nod towards Europe and a fantastic way to raise awareness and funds through some amazing small batch gin made with herbs picked by us, Breathing Spaces and our friends + family.

Get involved and send herbs to Joerma at HANNOVER Gin; everything edible can add flavour to gin. Address: Joerma Biernath, HANNOVER GIN, Weidendamm 20, D-30167 Hannover, Germany.
