Blackeye was Official Gift Partner of The Legends of World Rugby dinner on 11 October at The Brewery, London, in aid of the Wooden Spoon charity, with a bottle of Blackeye was gifted to each VIP guest.

Rugby fans in Manchester were able to sample our new ready-to-drink Blackeye Gin & Tonic in a can whilst they watched the Quarter Finals at entertainment venue Freight Island.

The great and the good of international rugby gathered at the International Rugby Players’ “Players Lounge” event at Le Rugby Club in Paris where they were treated to some delicious Blackeye cocktails served by James.

Two lucky winners of our Master of Malt competition got to join Alex, James, and Mike on board Infinity Cruise’s Norwegian Epic in Marseille for a weekend of Quarter Final shenanigans. Congratulations, Jane and Stephen Haslam!

Blackeye ran a competition to attend an exclusive GBR Changing Room Dinner inside the legendary Twickenham Stadium. Lucy & Alan attended the memorable evening on 5th February and were accompanied by a variety of legendary rugby players and experienced the cuisine whilst sharing memories with the Founders over a Blackeye. Everyone guest went home with a bottle of Blackeye Gin to enjoy with their friends and family at a later date.

From handing out 500 cans of Blackeye in The Cabbage Patch, to presentations to the 200 hospitality guests, the Six Nations weekend was a busy one!

The Founders were spreading the word of The Blackeye Rugby Fund to rugby goers and many jokes and laughs were shared, even some competitivity with challenges completed.

Blackeye G&Ts were thoroughly enjoyed throughout the pre-match celebrations, with some even trying to come back for more!
