The RNLI will be offering both dark and spiced rums while there is also an orange marmalade vodka available.

The spirits, which feature the Bridlington RNLI name and logo, are being supplied by Global Distillery Ltd and developed by master distiller and founder Ed Gibson.

It is hoped that the station will have secured a licence to sell the products ahead of its Christmas Craft Fair on Saturday, November 27.
