A taste of Scotland!
When it comes to delicious spirits there’s nothing better than sitting down with a nice glass of Gin and Tonic or lemonade if you prefer something sweet! Or if you’re living up on a Friday night then a vodka mixer is a wild way to liven the night up. Here in Scotland, we know how to enjoy ourselves and create something special at the same time. Whisky is the top spirit we are known for but the new upcoming spirits are Gin and Vodka. One we know how to do in Scotland is creating delicious food and drink, whether it be our Haggis, Black Pudding or Whisky and Gin.
Why Scottish Gin & Vodka?
Despite Scotland's famous spirit being Whisky, we produce around 70% of the UK’s Gin production, ranging from Hendrix, Gordons to more local famous Gins such as Edinburgh Gin and local distilleries. With pure Scottish water and quality botanicals, Scottish Gin is by far the best in flavour.
The next upcoming spirit that seems to be making a stellar rise in Scottish Vodka, made with the finest ingredients, is starting to make up at least 35% of Scotland's spirit intake. Making a grand entrance to the world of vodka!
