A quote from Ian Hewitt
“ There is no room for mediocre, or even a mention of second best in the story of the Spitfire. It is difficult for subsequent generations to compute the magnitude of the task required of the Spitfire and the RAF, for second best in the Battle of Britain would have simply meant the start of the end of the free world.
I was clear from the very start of this journey that in paying tribute to the Spitfire we had a responsibility to aim high, to be the best, with excellence being a prerequisite to all that we do.
In facing up to this challenge we have created one of the finest Gins in Blighty, in the Spirit of the Spitfire created to be the best.
Our freedom to live and love and drink Gin with whomsoever we choose was a hard won freedom. For which we pay tribute to, give thanks for and share the stories of this most incredible of generations.
Be proud of your Spitfire Heritage”.
