If you're a gin fan looking for a new face mask, then Boë Gin is offering customers the chance to get one for free.

Boë Gin is giving away colourful face masks to customers and bartenders across Scotland over the coming weeks. The floral masks were debuted in Bothwell’s Cut Fish bar and restaurant.

The re-usable face mask, decorated with a floral pattern inspired by the brand’s popular Violet gin, will come free of charge with every order of full-strength flavoured gin through the Boë website.

The masks will be delivered with every purchase above £25 made from the Boë website, and they can be washed at home.

As pubs and bars are open again across the UK, the award-winning Scottish gin producer will also be donating masks to bartenders and hospitality employees around the country.

Andrew Richardson, director at Boë said: “We hope these face masks can help people look great and stay safe at the same time.

 “The stylish masks are designed to be worn regardless of the occasion – whether that’s a trip to the shops or working behind a bar making some of our delicious signature cocktails.

 “As always, we encourage everyone to stay safe – even while they are enjoying themselves.”

Persie Gin also recently released branded face masks which read ‘only remove for gin and sarcasm’ – and they’ve gone down a storm with fans.

Government guidelines on face masks

The latest government review on 9 July included an update to the rules regarding wearing face masks in public, with coverings already mandatory on all public transport in Scotland.

The rules extend to include the likes of taxis, private hire cabs, buses, trains, the Glasgow subway, Edinburgh trams, planes and enclosed areas on ferries.

Face masks are now also mandatory in shops in Scotland as of 10 July.

Everyone is asked to comply with the new rule, with the exception of children under the age of five and those with certain medical conditions.
