Campers Get Into The Spirit At Dorset Camspite

6985227a-511b-4fec-be8d-3f3da2894820

Campers at a Dorset holiday park are raising their glasses to a new artisan gin that celebrates the proud history of local firefighters.  

Barkis gin has been specially crafted and distilled for Highlands End Holiday Park in Bridport, and is named after one of the historic fire engines on display in Martin's Bar and Restaurant.  

Since launching this spring, the strawberry pavlova flavoured tipple has been a top seller in the bar, and is also being bought by the bottle by holiday guests and local residents.

Martin's Bar is home to one of England's larghest private collections of fire service memorabilia, built up by Martin Cox, a member of the family which has owned Highlands End for almost 50 years. 

Martin said: “We wanted to create a laid-back fun gin which would complement our role as holiday providers, but still have an appeal to more serious gin connoisseurs. Barkis does the job wonderfully, and its clever blend of spices, botanicals and fruit extractions evokes one of our favourite summer puds – but for grown-ups only!”
