Airline catering suppliers are facing tremendous amounts of stock just sitting in warehouses. Some will sell you their meals to eat at home. American Airlines stopped buying first class nuts, so those are sitting in Dallas and are now for sale online. And, it turns out, British Airways 100th anniversary gin is being offloaded at a discount, too.
Pickering’s Gin has a case of British Airways gin miniatures marked down from £84.00 to £32.00 (62% off).
A world first, this gin has been expertly distilled to taste as good at altitude as it does on the ground. Our unique ten botanical blend celebrates the very best of British flora and fauna with rose petals and heather lending a soft and sweet note to our signature Bombay blend.
Expertly distilled in partnership with British Airways to celebrate its Centenary year, we’re offering you the chance to buy a case of 24 plastic miniatures at a remarkably good price.
This was gin available for purchase on British Airways short haul, starting last May. However there’s no inflight sales as part of social distancing on these flights currently. So Pickering’s is left with stock and no one to buy it – except perhaps direct-to-consumer though they aren’t able to ship to me. I’d probably be a sucker for this just for the novelty and packaging. This isn’t, however, the Cambridge Distillery Corcorde Room gin they rolled out four years ago.
