Tigers fans – fancy getting up close with the team at the start of the new season and being one of the first to get your hands on Burleighs’ Leicester Tigers gin? Well lucky for you, you are invited to join the first-team squad for a post-match celebration in Leicester’s Market Square following the club’s first Gallagher Premiership home fixture against Newcastle Falcons on Saturday 8 September.

To celebrate the launch of the club’s gin partnership with Burleighs, they’ll be taking over Hotel Street, Market Place Street and the Market Square in town from 5pm onwards.

If you have pre-ordered your bottle of the special edition Leicester Tigers Gin, you’ll also be able to collect your bottle in person from The Distillers Kitchen as well as receive a complimentary drink. Get your cameras ready because members of the Tigers first-team squad will also be out in force joining the fans at each of the three locations, so make sure you stop by for a chat and a selfie.

You’ll be able to sample the new gin and enjoy a range of cocktails – look out for the names, some might just be named after some of your Welford Road favourites.

If you want to secure your place you need to pre-register for attendance by reserving your place on Eventbrite by clicking here.

Of course on the same day the club will also be hosting their Tigers in the Park event pre-match and Burleighs will be on hand then to keep you topped up with gin from their G&T trailer.

The partnership between Leicester Tigers and Burleighs looks set to be really exciting and we can’t wait to give the new bottle a try! Make sure you pre-order yours to collect at the event. Bottles are priced at £35 and can be purchased by visiting BurleighsGin.com.
