The Surrey Copper Distillery has teamed up with AFC Energy, a leading provider of hydrogen power generation technologies, to produce a low-emission craft gin for Christmas.
The special edition of Copperfield London Dry to be called ‘Copperfield H2 Gin’ is being produced in a limited initial batch of 500 bottles for release in mid-December.
The gin will be distilled using power provided by an AFC Energy H-Power Tower which can produce electricity from hydrogen; by combining hydrogen with oxygen from the air the fuel cell produces energy and pure water with no direct greenhouse gas emissions. This will result in significantly lower CO2 emissions across the distilling process.

Pre-orders are now being taken and the first bottles are expected to be shipped from 14 December with guaranteed delivery ahead of Christmas if ordered by 20 December.
