Prohibition x BBQ Bob’s Gin – Flinders Foundation fundraiser
In September 2020 Prohibition Liquor Co were approached by Andrew Downs of Sage Automation and his best mate Brian ‘BBQ Bob’ Skinner, to work on a project to help fundraise for Flinders Foundation. The funds raised were to go to research for Multiple Myeloma, an incurable form of cancer which Brian has been fighting for several years.
The team at Prohibition Liquor Co, including founders Adam Carpenter and Wes Heddles were immediately on board with the project, and keen to help where they could. It was especially close to home for them, as the creation of Prohibition had come about as a result of losing Wes’ step-mum Mary (the name now gracing their 900 litre copper Still) to Mesothelioma and a tribute to her love of gin.
The award-winning distillery crew at Prohibition set about creating a custom recipe gin, based on a flavour profile which reflected Bob, and botanicals which were appropriate, as gin is the only alcohol Bob can drink these days, which doesn’t react with his condition.
The result is a gin which reflects the best elements of a true London Dry style, with strong juniper forward flavour, simple citrus and spice elements, which compliments almost any garnish and tonic combination, or your favourite cocktails.
The custom designed bottle features images of Bob on his travels around the world and the story of this amazing project on the back label.
For every bottle of Prohibition BBQ Bob’s gin purchased for $120, Prohibition makes a $50 donation to Flinders Foundation to continue their crucial cancer research to find a cure.
