Persie Distillery Releases Vodka for Cat Lovers

Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home has teamed up with Persie Distillery in order to raise critical funds for the shelter with its new expression Pusscat Vodka.

For each bottle sold, Persie Distillery will donate £1 to Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home to help them in their vital work rescuing and rehoming lost, stray and abandoned pets. This classic, unflavoured vodka was created to be just like a pusscat – silky and incredibly smooth. At 45% it is a premium spirit, slow-distilled to achieve a clean and round velvety mouthfeel.

Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home Corporate Engagement and Events Coordinator Katie Kennedy said: “We are delighted to have the support of Persie Distillery with its dedicated spirit for cat lovers. We have been huge fans of the Persie team for several years and admire their commitment to supporting Scottish rescues. We cannot wait to get our paws on a bottle.”

Simon Fairclough, Distiller and Managing Director, explains how the idea came about: “Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home is fighting to survive and needs our help more than ever. As fervent advocates of animal welfare, we have committed to donating £1 per bottle of Pusscat Vodka for the coming years – helping the Home do whatever it takes to protect cats and dogs in the face of an uncertain future.”

Pusscat Vodka is hand-crafted at Persie, a stables-turned-distillery in Glenshee, Highland Perthshire. The distillery has been raising money for animal welfare with its charity dog gin range since 2018.

Pusscat Vodka is 45% vol and retails at £41.00 for 70cl or £15.00 for 20cl. Available online at www.persiedistillery.com.
