While this Stormtrooper Gin isn’t from a galaxy far, far away, and it hasn’t been to space like the Star Trek Ten-Forward Vodka, it does come in these incredible stormtrooper helmet shaped bottles.
Designed by Shepperton Design Studios (as in Original Stormtrooper), these glass bottles are officially licensed Star Wars merchandise and look just like authentic stormtrooper helmets. Each has a capacity of 250ml (8.5 ounces).
Yet it isn’t all about the bottles, as they do come filled with sophisticated spirits from the award-winning Bimber Distillery. One bottle contains London Dry Gin (40% ABV) with flavors of juniper berries and peppery spices and featuring pleasantly dry and earthy notes with a gentle citrus finish. In the other bottle is Sloe Gin (30% ABV) that’s described as
“fresh berries with a kick of pepper, sweetness meets tangy sour, slightly creamy and softly fruity.”
Unlike the ol’ bucketheads, ensure you never miss a shot with this stunning set of two bottles of stand-out gin – with a nerdy, officially licensed stormtrooper twist.
Let’s start with the bottles – modelled on the authentic stormtrooper helmets designed by Shepperton Studios, of course. Yep, the very same studio that produced and created the originals for the very first Star Wars film back in 1976. Nice.
After rendering the stormtroopers in the finest glass available, they passed them on to the award-winning Bimber Distillery, who filled them with two of their favourite classic gins. Both gins in this galactic twin-set are packed full of specialist botanicals for two uniquely sophisticated spirits. These guys know their stuff.
After opening the box, you’ll have a tough decision on your hands: which gin to use first? Take your choice between…
- London Dry Gin – think juniper berries, peppery spices, pleasantly dry and earthy notes with a gentle citrus finish
- Sloe Gin – Fresh berries with a kick of pepper, sweetness meets tangy sour, slightly creamy and softly fruity
Or double up and mix ‘em together for a super-charged turbo G&T. Too much? You’re not going to stop the rebel alliance with that attitude!
Stormtrooper Gin is available exclusively at Firebox where it costs £49.99 / $63.99.
