The Surrey Copper Distillery is working with AFC Energy, a leading provider of hydrogen power generation technologies, to make a low-emission craft gin for Christmas. The special edition ‘Copperfield H2 Gin’ is being produced in a limited initial batch of 500 bottles and has started selling in the market.

The Copperfield gin is distilled with the help of an AFC Energy H-Power Tower, which can generate electricity from hydrogen. The fuel cell creates energy and pure water by mixing hydrogen with oxygen from the air.

As a result, CO2 emissions are greatly reduced during the distilling process. The alliance, which brings together two neighbouring Surrey-based businesses, represents exciting British innovation and creativity. It also talks about how hydrogen could help the UK's more than 400 gin distilleries and the food and drink industry as a whole reach their net-zero goals.

Dr Chris Smart, founder of The Surrey Copper Distillery, said:

“Our gin making process and carefully selected botanical ingredients provide the very best spirit flavour and aroma experiences. Our collaboration with AFC Energy demonstrates a more sustainable manufacturing process. Through the use of low-emission hydrogen power, we have been able to develop a gin which not only tastes excellent but also has a lower carbon footprint.”

Adam Bond, Chief Executive Officer at AFC Energy, said:

“Hydrogen fuel cell technologies can be implemented today across a wide range of applications, as demonstrated by our collaboration with our neighbours at The Surrey Copper Distillery. The Copperfield gin harnesses the ingenuity of two local businesses to demonstrate creative ways in which clean hydrogen can be used to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and support the transition to a zero-carbon future.”
