SPIRITS with PURPOSE
We here at Bone Idle Lounge have taken the time to source PREMIUM spirits that help the planet in some way.
From Carbon-Negative gins, to Rums that help save Sea Turtles and 100% recycled glass packaged whisky! (eventually more!)
All you have to do to contribute to helping great causes & being a positive change to the planet in some way, is to have a drink! That's IT!
How Bone Idle can you get? ;)
Nc'Nean Organic Single Malt Scotch Whisky [46% ABV]
Smooth and elegant, Nc'Nean whisky is easy-going and delicious however you drink it, with flavours of citrus, peach, apricot and spice.
Made from organic Scottish barley whose natural yields and rich soils contribute depth of flavour. Their gentle fermentation and distillation accentuate the delicate, fruity flavours in the spirit. Matured in specially treated red wine and American whiskey barrels to develop their spirit’s signature body and sweetness.
This whisky makes a big impression with the smallest footprint. Every bottle is certified organic, made in their verified carbon neutral distillery and bottled in a 100% recycled glass bottle.
Non-chill filtered. Natural colour. (vg)
The inspiration for their name, Neachneohain, was an ancient Gaelic goddess. She was known as the Queen of Spirits and a fierce protector of nature. Strong & independent, she was never afraid to walk her own path. They try to follow her ethos in everything they do.

COOPER KING GINS
Made in YORKSHIRE
Hand distilled, bottled and labelled at the distillery. One of only a handful of distilleries in the UK to run on 100% renewable energy.
Carbon Negative gins, meaning each bottle removes 1kg more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than it emits and plants 1 square metre of native UK woodland.
£1 from every bottle sold is donated to our tree-planting charity partner, the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust.
Their bottles are made from 55% recycled glass.
ZERO WASTE TO LANDFILL
After each distillation run they send the spent botanicals to a renowned bakery Haxby Bakehouse, to be upcycled into delicious breads and pastry glazes, or they compost them on site. The compost is then used to grow next year’s botanicals.
COOPER KING DRY GIN [42% ABV]
Rich cardamom notes married with juicy citrus & floral layers of local honey deliver a fresh, vibrant gin of exceptional character.
(Not currently suitable for vegans -contains honey)
COOPER KING HERB GIN [40% ABV]
Fresh basil, beautifully balanced with fragrant lemongrass and aromatic clove creates a bright, herbaceous gin.
LOST YEARS RUMS
A range of exceptional rums devoted to saving endangered sea turtles.
Every drop of Lost Years rum we sell saves baby sea turtles. Working with their charity partner, SEE Turtles, Lost Years help fund community-based conservation at key nesting sites across the Caribbean & Latin America.
Through their partnership with the Ocean Foundation’s Seagrass Grow project, they offset their carbon emissions by planting seagrass rather than trees.
LOST YEARS SILVER MOON [40% ABV]
Their signature unaged rum comes straight from the world epicentre of rum, the beautiful Caribbean islands of Jamaica and Barbados.
A pure blend of traditional Coffey column still rum from one of Jamaica’s most famous distilleries, married with a high-ester pot still rum from Barbados, Silver Moon is a light bodied yet flavour-packed rum with the natural sweetness of molasses.
The name Silver Moon refers to the night-time hatchings that take place on Caribbean beaches from May to September.
After emerging from the sand the baby sea turtles follow the light of the moon to find their way to the sea.

LOST YEARS FOUR ISLAND RUM [40% ABV]
Their multi award-winning signature blend, Four Island, is a union of world-class single estate rums made from two different base ingredients, molasses and fresh sugar cane juice.
Three wonderful barrel-aged rums married together – an eight-year-old rum from the legendary Foursquare Distillery in Barbados, a five-year-old from the Dominican Republic and a two-year-old pot still rum from a multi-award-winning estate in Jamaica.
The result is a core blend that's classically Caribbean: fruity and aromatic with juicy notes of tropical fruit, combined with the warm smokiness that comes from those years spent in lightly charred barrels previously used for maturing bourbon.
With an added ’punch’ of authentic unaged Rhum Agricole from Guadeloupe - to bring a vibrant and grassy freshness to the blend.
This unrivalled blend offers the best of both worlds – a luxurious amber liquid that combines the rich woody flavours of great aged rum, with the fresh earthiness of unaged Rhum Agricole.

LOST YEARS NAVY STRENGTH RUM [54.5% ABV]
A world-class unaged rum!
For a stronger unaged rum, try their award-winning Navy Strength, bottled at a formidable 54.5 percent ABV.
Recently named ‘Master’ in the white overproof category of the Rum & Cachaca Masters 2021 Competition, our top-of-its-class white is a potent yet gloriously smooth tropical rum.
A pure, unaged blend of traditional Coffey column still rum from Jamaica, married with a high-ester pot still rum from one of the most revered distilleries in Barbados, Navy Strength is a punchy unaged rum with the natural sweetness of molasses.
