We know, we know it’s only September but hear us out…
Cast your mind back to 1973 - some of you may not have been born, others just kids, but I can assure you that we've all experienced the joy of this timeless delight at some point in our lives.
We've all thought it and as kids dreamt it, but for one extraordinary man, it became a reality!
This December marks the 50th anniversary of the iconic hit "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday” by Wizzard. That’ll be 18,262 days of Christmas Cheer for frontman, songwriter and producer, Dr Roy Wood.
In celebration of this joyous milestone, we've teamed up with the rock legend for an enchanting third collaboration. Introducing the 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day 50th Anniversary Gin,' by Dr Roy Wood. A limited-edition commemorative spirit that captures the very essence of the holiday season with every sip. Plus, every penny Roy earns from this delightful collaboration goes straight to his chosen charity.
Masterfully crafted by Roy himself, this seasonal spirit boasts nostalgic notes of cinnamon, mulled spices and sweet orange perfectly intertwined with the earthy roundness of juniper. At 45% ABV the flavours are intense and uplifting. A real festive feat.
In addition to crafting the recipe, Roy also employed his artistic background to personally design the label. This project was driven by the desire to offer fans of his and the beloved Christmas hit a truly exceptional and personalised experience.
"Welcome to the latest version of our Christmas Supergin produced by Nelson's Distillery. I am pleased to have been invited to collaborate once more with Nelson's, and to have designed the label for this gin, which I enjoy doing. This allows me the opportunity to use my art school background in a useful capacity. You will find that this tipple is not only a superb liquid refreshment, but will also be very useful as a seasonal gift for a favourite family member or a friend. Making you a very popular person this Christmas. We hope that you have a great holiday time, and enjoy this tasty treat". - Roy Wood.
As a special treat the first 20 bottles of 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day 50th Anniversary Gin' will be personally signed by the man himself. These limited-edition bottles are sure to become a cherished memento for any Christmas enthusiast and collectors alike.
To kick off this extraordinary celebration, we're launching a pre-sale event starting Friday 29th September 2023 so you can secure your bottle and be among the first to savour the festive spirit. General sales will open the following week, but we encourage you to act quickly as this exclusive gin is expected to be in high demand.
Alongside commemorating the 50th anniversary of the iconic hit, the collaboration between Roy Wood and Nelson's Distillery & School also carries a deeper mission. In honour of Roy Wood's remarkable contributions to the world of music, we are launching a campaign to propel the cherished Christmas anthem "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day" to the top of the charts, securing its spot as the Christmas number one for the first time in its history. We’ll be sharing more information later in the year on how you can be part of this musical milestone while enjoying the spirit of the season with a sip of 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day 50th Anniversary Gin.'
