They wanted a gin that could be drunk smooth, in a simple gin and tonic or a crafty cocktail so that no matter what your preference, everyone could enjoy it. So confident are they about their new gin, they aim to convert people who don’t drink gin into gin lovers!
To them, the most important factor is that the people of Glasgow love the gin as much as we do.
McGin is a proper Glasgow gin, authentic and unpretentious with a great sense of humour, like most Glaswegians! It 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.
And what about that amazing label? Celeste says she wanted it to be fun and lighthearted, representing the defining nature of most Glaswegians.
