Fans of the iconic rock star Roy Wood experienced an early Christmas treat at an exclusive meet and greet hosted by Nelson’s Distillery & School in Staffordshire. The legendary musician, known for his success with The Move, ELO, and Wizzard, devoted an afternoon to connecting with fans, signing cherished memorabilia and his latest creation, the 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day Supergin'.

Celebrating 50 Years of Festive Cheer

This special gin, infused with festive notes of cinnamon, mulled spices, and sweet orange, commemorates the 50th anniversary of Wizzard’s beloved Christmas anthem. Upon its September release, the first 20 bottles, autographed by Wood, sold out instantly, a testament to the timeless allure of his music.

Creating Unforgettable Moments

In response to fan enthusiasm and the limited availability of signed bottles, Roy Wood and Nelson's Distillery hosted this complimentary event, creating a rare opportunity for enthusiasts to meet the legend in person. Admirers journeyed from Kent, Norwich, Oxford, and beyond, eager to engage with Wood and celebrate the enduring magic of his songs.
