Good Times for Scottish Gin-Lovers

The sun is out and the gin is flowing - and so are Scottish gin distillers' creative juices! Here are some home-grown brands to try over the summer months. 

First up is El:gin, from - you're way ahead of me - Elgin. (That cracks me up.) Keen to avoid a 'ginny' gin, this sleek, black-beetle bottle is chock-full of Scottish oats, giving the gin a cranachan creaminess and malted end note.

And black must be the new black, with another jet bottle from Callendar-based distiller Dale McQueen. Heston Blumenthal needs to watch his back, as the McQueen Gin team is having fun with foodie-gin infusions, coming up with four flavours as eclectic as Chocolate Mint Gin and Smokey Chilli Gin. 

And, finally, something for nosey gin-lovers: Persie Gin from Glenshee brings a whiff of excitement as each profile is designed to unlock your taste buds through your sense of smell. With Zesty Citrus, Herby & Aromatic and Sweet & Nutty gins, you can rustle up a fruity, savoury or sweet G&T.
