Local charity The Hamish Foundation has launched an innovative fundraising project to help raise funds to support St Andrews town initiatives during 2020. “Strictly Gin” includes individuals signing-up for one of four unique gin blending experiences which includes each attendee blending their own favourite flavoured blend of the spirit during the masterclass with Tayport Distillery. The winner of each of the four heats will then be entered into a grand final, resulting in the judged winning blend being bottled to produce a limited edition run and sold from mid-November with proceeds going to the Hamish Foundation and used to support a series of St Andrews improvement projects during the next twelve months.
100 limited edition bottles of the winning gin will be produced and sold from mid November, but pre-sales for the gin will be taken at the masterclass events. The chosen winners will be invited to attend an exclusive final dinner at the Old Course Hotel on the 17th of October where the Hamish Gin will be chosen.
