We were so excited when we came across the film Virunga – the inside story of the battle for the incredible national park – on Netflix. The sometimes harrowing, but always inspiring, footage gave us clear first hand evidence of why using our Honey Rum to do our bit is so important.
The honey we use in our unique rum comes from within the Virunga National Park itself, where farmers are paid by the state to produce delicious jungle honey as an alternative to habitat-destroying deforestation. As the film shows, the conflict over these beautiful habitats (and the amazing creatures living in them) is much bigger that one flavourful ingredient, but it’s also a reminder that doing your bit really does matter.
We think everyone should watch this eye-opening documentary, or get in touch with us here at Team Tipsy if you want to find out more.

When we launched The Tipsy Food Company we were keen that it would give something back. We were thinking of ways we could do something meaningful and we were thinking about like minded charities, given we are all about liquid it seemed sensible to think about water. We are delighted to have partnered with Dig Deep, we are in awe of the work they do and really pleased that we can play our part.

By buying just one bottle of gin, you can provide a clean water tap to a school. For a child, this could mean the difference between dropping out of primary school and completing their full education.
