Head Blender notes:

“The blend for Leander Pink took me two years to perfect. It had to capture the spirit of a day at the club during Henley Royal Regatta – late June sunshine, a crisp breeze, huge hats, stripy blazers and Olympic-grade shells racing down the Thames.

“I needed to reflect Leander’s high standards in terms of taste and the club’s distinctive shade of pink in the glass… a fine art! The result is nothing short of quaffable pink luxury.”

Trevor Clough,
CEO & Head Blender
