UK, LONDON, June, xxx ; Mercury Spirit brand Seven Hills Gin is excited to announce that Marussia Beverages UK will take over as the UK distributors from xx June 2021. Marussia specialise in the distribution of rare and premium artisan spirits from around the world, and Seven Hills are thrilled to be the latest brand to join their impressive selection of Marussia distribution partners. Marussia will be taking over full distribution from previous distribution partner Boutique Brands.
Distilled in Moncalieri, near Turin in the historic distillery of Torino Distillati, years of culture and heritage are distilled into each bottle of the multi-award winning Seven Hills, creating a perfectly balanced gin with a touch of Italian romance and style.
Seven Hills Gin reflects the innovation, quality and modern approach of Made in Italy, the unique taste of Seven Hills is created using the seven high-quality, key ingredients of Pomegranate, Rose Hip, Juniper, Roman Camomile, Blood Orange, Artichoke and Celery hand chosen by a Master Herbalist. The botanicals are infused for 10-15 days, they are gently pressed to extract their individual flavours before the extract is then distilled using a vacuum pot distillation – a gentle and innovative method of distillation designed to maintain the smooth and rich flavours of the botanicals. The result is a perfectly balanced spirit with a distinctive body, strength and flavour that is delicately complex and still remains light and refreshing.
In addition to its premium liquid Seven Hills is blockchain certified, providing full transparency via a QR code printed on all bottle labels that shows the consumer the journey of each bottle – from selecting ingredients through to distillation and packaging. Committed to the most sustainable ways of working, Seven Hills source all materials for both the packaging and botanicals from Italy and use a modern distillation process that reduces the impact of their carbon footprint. The beautiful bottle features a bespoke cap and seal, produced using recyclable materials and a bespoke bottle design created by Italian glass manufacturers using at least 30% recycled glass.
Since the brand’s creation by Italian born founder Filippo Previero in 2014, Seven Hills has won numerous awards including a recent win with two stars at the coveted Great Taste Awards in 2020 and a Gold Medal in the Super Premium Category at The Gin Masters, hosted by The Spirits Business in 2018.
Founder of Seven Hills Gin Filippo Previero says of the new distribution partner;
“We would like to thank the team at Boutique Brands for their commitment and hard work establishing Seven Hills Gin in the UK market. We are very proud that Seven Hills Gin has achieved this impressive milestone in winning a strong distribution partner like Marussia. We are very much looking forward to working the team at Marussia Beverages and drawing on their expertise in rare and premium artisan spirits to introduce even more consumers to Seven Hills, forming a key part of our strategic global aspiration.”

About Seven Hills Gin
The multi-award winning Seven Hills is 100% Italian made and is committed to delivering the most authentic Italian experience, using botanicals, ingredients and materials, all sourced from within the country. Seven Hills was designed to promote ‘Made in Italy’ around the world, in a celebration of Italian heritage, culture and quality. In 2019, Seven Hills underwent a rebrand and consequentially released a stylish updated bottle design made using nationally sourced materials and manufacturers, with a commitment to reducing the impact of the brand’s carbon footprint.
Italian born founder Filippo Previero established the brand in 2014, capitalising on a decade’s worth of experience in the food and drink industry, both behind the bar at some of London’s most reputable cocktail bars and as part of a creative team that designed some of the most unique bars in Italy, Dubai and the UK.
Seven Hills is one of the first spirit brands that is blockchain certified, which means full transparency of what they do and how they do it. A QR code on the label leads consumers to a website, detailing Seven Hills’ ingredients, distillation process and where the ingredients are sourced from.
Seven Hills is committed to the most sustainable ways of working, sourcing all materials and botanicals from Italy and using a modern distillation, reducing the impact of their carbon footprint as much as they can. Seven Hills chooses to use the innovative vacuum distillation in order to lower the environmental impact of its production at lower temperatures, which makes it not only possible to protect the delicate botanicals but also has an efficient impact on energy consumption. The result is a perfectly balanced spirit with a distinctive body, strength and flavour that is delicately complex and still remains light and refreshing.
Seven Hills has won numerous awards including two stars at the coveted Great Taste Awards in 2020, a Gold Medal in the Super Premium Category at The Gin Masters, hosted by The Spirits Business in 2018 as well as a Gold Medal at the London Spirits Competition, which recognises brands from all over the world.
