When you are looking for a gift that’s unique and meaningful to mark a special occasion, where do you go? One of our favourite places to buy unique gifts, is a museum gift shop. The Natural History Museum shop is definitely one of our favourites. There are interesting and thought provoking gifts for all ages. Last time we were there we picked up a growing crystal, that took a month to grow and was just marvellous.
However the gift shop is not just fossils and dinosaurs. There’s even some lovely gin lurking in the shadows. The Natural History Museum has teamed up with Cooper King Distillery to launch an exclusive carbon-negative gin, “Discovery.” Created using fresh basil, beautifully balanced with fragrant lemongrass and aromatic clove, this bright, herbaceous gin will make the perfect gift for friends and family. Especially for those who enjoy a refreshing G&T.
For every 70cl bottle, innovatively cold-distilled in small batches using 100% renewable energy, one kilogramme of carbon dioxide equivalent is removed from the atmosphere (including carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases) and one square metre of English woodland is planted through the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust.
The packaging is sustainably produced, with a lightweight bottle made from 55% recycled glass and labelled by hand at the distillery. Proceeds from all orders help the Museum continue carrying out pioneering research, care for internationally important collections and inspire people to take better care of the natural world.
And now that Dippy the dinosaur is back, there’s even more reason to visit the Natural History Museum, and pop by the gift shop to pick up a gift that is sure to impress. You can also order online at the Natural History Museum Shop here.
