A gin distilled with Collagen, named CollaGin, has a claim to fame. This year it received the backing of two out of the five ‘dragons’ on the long-running BBC series Dragons’ Den, securing a £50,000 investment for a 30% share of the business.

Co-founders of brand owner Young in Spirit – Camilla Brown and Liz Beswick – pitched to the five ‘dragons’ which include Peter Jones, Deborah Meaden, Touker Suleyman, Jenny Campbell and Tej Lalvan. They received investment offers from Tej Lalvani, the CEO of vitamin giant Vitabiotics and Touker Suleyman, fashion retail entrepreneur and investor.

Described as “sweet and refined”, the gin has 11 botanicals including rose oil, pink grapefruit and orris root, as well as collagen.
