May 1932, Amelia Earhart has set off on the first female solo flight across the Atlantic, but she’s had to go off track... She’s landed - not in Paris as planned -but the Gallagher family’s field near Derry.
And us locals can’t wait to welcome the trailblazing aviator. All these years later, we’re watching the first ever Derry gin take flight.
This small batch gin uses the finest hand picked botanicals including purple saxifrage, elderberry and hawthorn berry, from the meadow where she landed.
This unique gin embodies the pioneering spirit that is Amelia Earhart.
We've created a gin inspired by adventure.
Looking to Amelia Earhart - the first female to fly solo across the Atlantic, she embodies the spirit of Earhart Gin.
From sourcing botanicals from the meadow where she landed her plane...to using the colours of her 'Little Red Bus' we have been inspired by her fearless navigation of the world.
Launching Derry City's first gin we are celebrating an icon.
'I just wanted to see if I could fly the Atlantic alone.
We all fly Atlantics in our own way. If someone does something against tradition, neighbourhood opinion and so called "common sense" that is an Atlantic...I flew the Atlantic because I wanted to...To want in one's heart to do a thing, for it's own sake; to enjoy doing it; to concentrate all one's energies upon it - that is not only the surest guarantee of success, it is also being true to oneself.' - Amelia Earhart
With a traditional base of juniper, coriander & angelica root Earhart is a classic gin. Our locally foraged wild botanicals - hawthorn berry, elderberry & purple saxifrage add to this - giving Earhart its signature taste.
