Having fallen in love with gin on a Spanish holiday aged 18, Gail Sneddon was unimpressed with the choices back in Scotland at the time and when, a few years later a designer friend showed her some gin bottle designs he was working on, a seed of an idea began to form. Gail’s husband Stewart was also a designer and as she worked through ideas of what her gin could taste like, Stewart came up with some initial design ideas.
Tragically, shortly after this, Stewart suddenly and unexpectedly passed away, leaving Gail and their two daughters devastated. A few months later, Gail and her designer friend, Steven decided that she should go ahead and launch Gorgeous Gin as a legacy of Stewart. After 2 years of hard work, Gorgeous Gin was launched during lockdown and it was an instant hit, with Scottish Gin fans praising the unique and classy bottle (it would not look out of place on your dressing table!) and the gin itself, which also has a unique and elegant flavour that is simply Gorgeous!
On the nose, you can initially smell juniper, followed by citrus.
Smooth and velvety feel on the mouth.
The initial flavour is juniper followed by citrus and then a soft savoury and sweet spice.
For the perfect Miss G&T:
Fill a highball glass with ice
50ml Gorgeous Gin
150 ml Fever-Tree refreshingly light Indian Tonic Water
Garnish with a sprig of rosemary and a slice of pink grapefruit.

Classic and elegant, this wonderful Scottish Gin is just what you’d expect to find inside the stunning bottle. We were impressed by the fresh zing from the pink grapefruit that fades into something complex and slightly spicy. Truly a Gorgeous Gin.
