THE BAUBLES ARE BACK!
The original gin-filled baubles have been picked and packed for 2017 and are now ready for delivery from WineOnline.ie
WineOnline.ie are delighted to announce they are the exclusive Irish distributor of the award-winning Pickering’s Gin Christmas tree baubles, a must for all gin fans across the country – THE most wanted Christmas tree decoration is back on sale. After huge demand from customers all around the world last year, Pickering’s Gin has harvested a bumper crop of their award-winning baubles for 2017.
Will Mullin, WineOnline can’t hold back his enthusiasm: “We are super excited to have access to the limited stocks of these fun filled gin baubles. We could see that they sold out in two minutes in other markets last year, so we got our hands on as much stock as we could for Irish customers. The gin boom continues in Ireland and unusual gins and gin related presents will be the big sellers this Christmas. The baubles fit that mould, and what’s not to love – They are fun filled double shots in every bauble!”
To keep up with the demand for the coveted decoration the Pickering’s Gin team has expanded from nine to fifteen full time staff and hired an additional 19 elves part-time. Working around the clock, the team have been filling the 20K baubles needed a day to fulfill orders.
Matthew Gammell, co-founder of Pickering’s Gin notes: “People thought we were mad to set up a distillery in the old animal kennels of the former Edinburgh Vet School in 2013. They thought we were even madder to attempt filling 20 thousand Pickering’s Gin Baubles a day on-site in 2017, but we’ve gone and done it!”
The Edinburgh distillery made headlines after 30,000 of their gin-filled Christmas baubles sold out in 82 seconds in 2016.
A pre-order of the Christmas baubles this year to its #Ginfriends mailing list saw the distiller sell 10% of their stock in July, highlighting the extraordinary call for an innovative twist to Christmas tree decorating. The baubles have been carefully cultivated and are now ripe and ready for customers in Ireland.
Marcus Pickering, co-founder says: “The idea for the baubles started in 2014 as a bit of fun for our local Christmas fair, now they’re the must-have Christmas decoration. Others may follow but we were most definitely the first to add that gin sparkle to trees around the country.
Each colourful bauble is filled with a jolly 50ml serving of Pickering’s gin, making it a perfect gift for the festive season. Pickering’s Gin Baubles are retailed in a gift pack containing six differently coloured plastic baubles (RRP: €38.00) and are available here.
