Plymouth Gin company gives £7,000 to voluntary agency
THE firm which owns Plymouth Gin has given £7,000 to a voluntary agency helping people affected by adoption.
Staff at the famous Barbican distillery helped choose After Adoption as Chivas Brothers' charity of the year, alongside colleagues at the company's Hammersmith office and Kennington distillery.
The Scotch whisky and gin firm acquired Plymouth Gin five years ago.
After Adoption places children with adoptive parents, supports adopted adults, and reunites birth families separated through adoption.
