Charles was an avid sportsman, his persuit of which led him to be twice shipwrecked. A true country gentleman and a keen participant of field sports, the major continued a family tradition of making fruit liqueurs at home for friends who accompanied him on hunting and shooting trips. A man of unusual passions he was tattoed with the entire family coat of arms on his chest. In founding the company he aimed to preserve a small piece of the English countryside he loved so much.
