Due to its popularity, Papillon Dartmoor Distillery is changing their Limited Edition Carabus Gin to Special Edition.

Carabus was created in collaboration with Nick Baker, Dartmoor Naturalist and wildlife presenter. When asked to pick a special Dartmoor species to focus this gin around Nick chose the Blue Ground Beetle (Carabus intricatus). Thought extinct it was re-discovered on Dartmoor in 1985. It is a woodland beetle that feeds on slugs at night.

£2 from every 70cl bottle is donated to Buglife to help protect this beetle.

In honour of this special beetle, woodland botanicals have been chosen; rowan and hawthorn berries, nettle wood sorrel and hazelnuts.
