Show your love for animals and the natural world in an unexpected way: by sipping on premium quality drinks from Gorilla Spirits.
From spiced rum, to coffee liqueurs, to a super smooth vodka, this do-gooding distiller crafts small-batch, award-winning spirits at their HQ in Hampshire.
As their name suggests, Gorilla Spirits supports the conservation of mountain gorillas. These gentle giants are an endangered species, at serious threat of extinction.
But small increases in their numbers look promising and that’s down to the hard work and dedication of governments and conservation organisations. The Gorilla Organisation is one of those, working with communities at the forefront of gorilla conservation in Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
By donating £1 from every bottle of their drinks, Gorilla Spirits is supporting the good work of The Gorilla Organisation, from the field workers in Africa to the fundraising and communications team in London. They nickname this donation a GAT – “Gorilla Added Tax.”
So every time you savour a glass of Gorilla Spirits, you’ll be making a difference to this iconic endangered species and the people fighting the threats they face.
Gorilla Spirits founder Andy Daniel’s love of food and drink goes all the way back to his childhood, when he’d spend time with his mum as she baked. When it came to the end of his corporate career, Andy decided it was the right time to indulge this passion and start a business in the industry.
Inspired by the craft distiller movement in the US, which was beginning to take off here in the UK too, he started developing Gorilla Spirits in 2011. He spent four years perfecting the Silverback Mountain Strength Gin before officially launching in 2015.
It’s always been Andy’s desire to show that creating the highest quality spirits and running a business with social responsibility at its heart can go hand in hand. He’s pulled it off in Gorilla Spirits, developing an exceptional portfolio of spirits while helping save gorillas one drink at a time.
