The discovery of King Richard III in Leicestershire is quite the remarkable story. In August 1485 King Richard III was killed at the Battle of Bosworth, and buried by the Grey Friars. Fast forward to August 2012, the University of Leicester, and the Richard III Society began a search underneath a car park in Leicester, to find King Richard III’s remains and the Grey Friars Church. Five months after the dig began, the University of Leicester confirmed a skeleton unearthed by archaeologists was in fact Richard III.
In 2018, working in partnership with the King Richard III Visitor Centre and the Craft Gin Club, Burleighs created a special collaboration gin taking inspiration from the time the lost king sat upon the throne. Initially producing 32,000 bottles for the subscription service, the gin was such a hit it became a full time member of the range.

From providing expert advice and guidance, to recovery and rehabilitation, through to transitioning to civilian life, The Royal British Legion are on hand every step of the way for members of the Armed Forces and their families.
In 2020, Burleighs and the Royal British Legion Poppy Shop joined forces to create a hand-crafted, premium gin that pays direct homage to the Royal British Legion and Armed Forces with a unique botanical recipe that features poppy seed and a standout bottle design with cascading poppies. The first batch sold out in just three hours and proceeds from the bottle go directly to the charity, providing vital funds to support our Armed forces community.
25 years ago, large swathes of the Midlands landscape had been left scarred by centuries of coal mining and other heavy industry. But a passionate group of people had a vision: a forest. The first forest to be created at scale in England for over 1000 years, it transformed and literally turned the landscape from black to green. The National Forest started as an idea that, like a tiny seed, was planted and nurtured until it grew into what it is today - 200 square miles of mixed habitat forest, huge green lungs that have breathed life into a landscape and transformed communities and lives.
Situated in the heart of the National Forest, Burleighs have always been inspired by the beauty of our historic surroundings. Working in partnership with the expert foresters, we developed a unique botanical recipe that encompasses the true spirit of our rolling landscape. Each bottle of Burleighs National Forest Gin sold will help support the continuing efforts to create an accessible forest that will provide lasting benefits for generations to come.
