The founders of Elephant Gin, Robin and Tessa encountered a young bull during one of their visits to Big Life Foundation in the Chyulu Hills in Kenya. Given Elephant Gin’s involvement in the support of elephant conservation work. The Big Life team decided to let Tessa & Robin name this particular bull. And because the brand’s motto is ‘The first step to changing the world is having the right spirit’, it seemed the ideal name indeed.
Spirit has already got beautiful tusks, despite his young age. He has been spending more time in the Chyulu Hills recently, hopeful because he feels safe. He is remarkably calm and if we can protect him into old age – he will certainly grow to be one of Amboseli’s great tuskers; a legacy of the conservation work that is keeping him alive.
