As both lifelong Stockport County fans, we are delighted to be working with the Stockport County Supporters Co-operative to bring you this exclusive limited edition gin...
BERGARA GIN is being launched by Stockport County Supporters Cooperative and Stockport Gin in honour of the legendary Uruguayan manager, who holds a special place in the hearts of County fans. 'The man from Uruguay' managed County between 1989 and 1995, led us to our first promotion in 24 years and took the team to Wembley Stadium on four separate occasions.
The gin will be used to help raise funds and awareness for the Stockport County Supporters Co-operative's Danny Bergara Statue Fund. The campaign is aiming to raise £50,000 and once the target is reached, the money will be used to place a bronze statue of Danny outside Edgeley Park, the home of Stockport County, to ensure that his legacy lives on for many years to come.
BERGARA GIN has a wonderful South American influence and will be sold in 70cl bottles completed with a unique label designed by county fan Ric Pennington, better known as Pennodraws, featuring Danny and some of the iconic players he brought to the club and as well as tasting beautiful, it is sure to make a fantastic collectors item.
The price of the gin is £38 and 20% of the sale price will go directly to the Danny Bergara Statue Fund.
The gin will then be available from Saturday 9th April. This gin is limited edition, so pre-ordering is highly recommended to be in with a chance of getting your hands on a bottle!
NOTE: Pre-orders are being taken from Tuesday 1st March with the gin to be launched on Saturday 9th April. Any orders placed will be dispatched / ready for collection on 9th April.
If selecting our free Click and Collect service at checkout, collections are to be made from the Stockport Gin Shop in Stockport Town Centre and you will be notified when your order is ready.
All postage orders will be dispatched via DPD but we cannot guarantee delivery on the launch date.
There will also be a chance to grab an early taste of Bergara Gin prior to its official launch, at a pre-launch event on Thursday 7th April at Our Lady and the Apostle Social Club on Flint Street, Shaw Heath. Doors will open at 7.30 p.m. and players from Danny's era, as well as members of his family, will be in attendance.
This will be the first chance to sample the gin and collect pre-ordered bottles before it is officially launched 2 days later. A County themed raffle will also be held on the night with some fantastic prizes on offer. All proceeds from the launch night will go to the statue fund and we thank Martin at Our Lady's for kindly donating the room hire fee to the cause.
Ticket details for the event will be announced by Stockport County Supporters Co-operative shortly.
