At the heart of McGin is pride in being Glaswegian. Teams from across Glasgow have helped with the production, distilling and design of the product. McGin is a proper Glasgow gin, authentic and unpretentious with a great sense of humour, like most Glaswegians!
After twenty-five years of owning pubs and even longer in the drinks industry, Celeste McGinn wanted to make her mark on the new craft gin boom. She wanted a gin that appealed to people from all walks of life, of all ages who would enjoy a quality gin. A gin that could be drank smooth, in a simple gin and tonic or a cocktail so that no matter what your preference, everyone could enjoy it. She wanted to convert people who don’t drink gin into gin lovers.
McGin Glasgow Gin is made to a very high standard and has 8 botanicals: juniper, rosehip, blackberry leaf, angelica root, lemon peel, orange peel, coriander and liquorice.
The resulting taste is subtle, and the combination of botanicals allows McGin to be manipulated to a consumer’s personal taste. By using garnishes and tonics that compliment two or three of the botanicals, McGin drinkers will be able to create a drink that adheres to their own preferences. McGin Glasgow Gin designed the label to be fun and lighthearted, representing the nature of most Glaswegians.
