PTSD999 provides vital support for those serving, or who have served, within the emergency services living with post-traumatic stress.
Gin Blue Line was created when distillery owner Cameron McCann – a former Metropolitan Police officer– was asked to create a product that would help raise awareness and funds for those within the emergency services suffering from PTSD. With 20% of profits from its sale going to mental health charities, the gin has raised over £5,000 since launching in November 2021.
The distillery partnered with PTSD999 in 2022 to part-fund the charity’s PTSD awareness short film Broken Glass: A Fragile Mind and has continued to support it with the money raised by Gin Blue Line.
Made with selected botanicals including forget-me-nots, Scottish heather, sage and kaffir lime leaves, Gin Blue Line should be served with a premium tonic and garnished with lemon or lime to accentuate the spicy, floral and sweet notes.
PTSD999 has been operating as a non-for-profit social enterprise since its formation and is run on a 100% volunteer basis. It is committed to raising awareness of PTSD within the emergency services and helping break the stigma associated with it.
Post-traumatic stress disorder can be successfully treated, even when it develops many years after a traumatic event, if you speak up and get the right support. PTSD999 can be contacted by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 0795 725 2955.
