Spirit is strong with the Original Stormtrooper

Three new 70cl gin variants for Original Stormtrooper brand launch from Blue Tree Gifts.

The Original Stormtrooper licensing programme – managed by Golden Goose – is celebrating a seasonal bonus with the launch of three new 70cl gin variants to complement the existing Salted Caramel and Vodka liqueurs.

The new spirits from Blue Tree Gifts further strengthen the brand in the BWS category where it has driven sales of over 150,000 Original Stormtrooper giftsets to date.

Meanwhile, demand has also increased for Original Stormtrooper beer during lockdown.

The Sourceror’s Ben Fowler commented: “The huge rise in online ordering has massively challenged our supply chain. It really is all-hands-to-the-pump.”

In addition, licensee Beer Buddies has unveiled a hand-sculpted wall mounted Original Stormtrooper bottle opener.

Shepperton Design Studio’s Andrew Ainsworth said: “Any connection between these products and the Stormtrooper’s failure to shoot straight is purely coincidental.”
