Campaign recognised by Trade Mark

Monday, June 4th, 2018

Campaign for real Gin Trade Mark certificationRecent eagle eyed visitors to the website may have noticed the addition of a small ‘TM’ to the Campaign’s name.

Prompted by Campaigner Jonathan Jeyes, a vote was taken at the 2017 Christmas Dinner to mark the 40th anniversary by applying for a Campaign for Real Gin trade mark.

After forty years of campaigning, it seemed sensible to defend against any Johnny-come-latelies trying to assert that they, not the Campaign, are responsible for the current vogue in gin.

Accordingly, Jonathan set to work, and on 4th May 2018, UK Trade Mark No. 00003284004 was entered into the register, effective 20th January 2018.

This has been added to the Home page as a CRG milestone, and we look forward to seeing the trade mark on our upcoming brew of ‘Roaring Forties’ gin.
