For the Love of Gin
Scottish gins have a great reputation. Over 70% of gin consumed in the UK is produced in Scotland, including two of the global bestsellers – Tanqueray and Gordon’s. But for the craft scene, the game-changer was in 1998 when Hendrick’s gave gin enthusiasts something to high-five about with a combination of curious packaging and a cucumber perfect serve. Those whisky buffs at William Grant’s certainly know their hard stuff.
That got the rest of them thinking. Around 2010, whisky distilleries in Speyside and Islay produced Caorunn and The Botanist, with the makers of Sheep Dip whisky launching Edinburgh Gin. Following hard on their heels came Strathearn, Pickering’s and Eden Mill. And now every year brings new craft brands to fill up your drinks cabinet! As we welcomed in 2018, there were almost 100 different gin brands and over 200 different gin expressions with Scottish money behind them.
