Celebration of luxury
NB Gin joins VIPs at Rolls-Royce book launch
An East Lothian distiller has won pride of place in a prestigious publication that will be launched at a VIP party at the Saatchi Gallery in London.
NB Gin, produced in North Berwick, is one of the companies featured in the new Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club (RREC) publication Strive for Perfection – A Celebration of Design & Luxury. A bottle of the Scottish craft spirit will become a formal exhibit at the publication’s official launch this week.
The RREC has legions of devoted members around the globe. In recognition of this enduring appeal, it will be hosting a luxury showcase at London’s famous Saatchi Gallery to launch its new book. It’s here that a bottle of NB Gin will appear in a lit-up glass case and be placed on its own individual plinth.
Rolls-Royce and Bentley motor car enthusiasts, owners and collectors, along with celebrity VIPs, will be hosted by motoring journalist and TV presenter Quentin Willson, racing driver and TV presenter Vicki Butler-Henderson, and the famous wine critic Jilly Goolden when the gallery opens its doors for this special book launch and exhibition on 4 December.
Famous marques will be on display throughout the event to celebrate the illustrious history of the luxury motor car manufacturer. More than 100 of the most revered brands in the world – which now includes NB Gin – will also be exhibiting at the launch.
Vivienne Muir (right, with husband Steve), chief executive of NB Distillery, said: “We couldn’t be more delighted that the RREC has selected NB Gin to be part of its 2016 publication. From the very start, our focus has been on quality and we’re thrilled that it’s the quality of NB Gin which is driving its success. The
fact that it’s being actively sought out by other luxury names means that the time and effort we put into getting our original recipe absolutely perfect was worth every minute.”
Jaclyn Smith, business manager at the RREC added: “Our publishing partner, St James’s House, enlisted the help of a number of leading experts and motoring journalists, who share our love of Rolls-Royce, to produce a fitting homage to what is one of the world’s most prestigious names in luxury motoring.”
Richard Freed, Director of publisher St James’s House, said: “What better way to launch this wonderful book than with a celebration of the finer things in life? We are all very excited about what promises to be an event to remember.
