Stirling Gin - Meet The Producer March 31, 2017 17:00
FREE TASTING EVENT
Date: Saturday 15th April
Time: 11am - 3pm
This month we are delighted to welcome Stirling Gin into the deli for a little precursor to the The Wee G & T Festival. We'll be joined by Stewart Patience, their new Brand Ambassador, who will be ready and waiting to share the secrets of their perfect pour, some cool cocktail ideas and the story behind this fantastic new Scottish gin. Be sure to drop in for a taste!
Stirling Gin was created by husband and wife team June and Cameron McCann in the Spring of 2015 so is still very much the new-gin-on-the-block. However, that didn't stopped them winning the 2016 People’s Choice Award for Best New Business 2017 at the inaugural Scottish SME Business Awards.
Their original little cooper pot still ‘Jinty’ worked hard for the pair for over 6 months whilst they tried botanical after botanical but today they run with Annie, a 450-litre copper still that produces 370 bottles of Stirling Gin cut to 43% ABV.
Stirling Gin is flavoured with nettle and basil, juniper, angelica, orange and lemon and is perfect served as a classic G & T or in one of their many cocktails. Our personal favourite is the SG Smooth....
‘The SG Smooth’
Put 1 measure Stirling Gin, 1 measure *Raspberry Vodka and 3 measures of Pineapple juice all into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well, then pour into your cocktail glass, place on top a fresh raspberry……and enjoy the perfect smooth cocktail
* Raspberry Vodka can be replaced with Raspberry or Bramble Gin.
