Vicky and Dale McQueen had the ambitious plan of starting up their own distillery where they could create and produce gins that were unique, original and added something new and exciting to the world of Scottish Gin. Based on feedback from 3,000 tasters, Vicky and Dale narrowed down the recipes until they were left with a few that were different and tasty.
In 2016 Trossachs Distillery was established based in Callander in the lower highlands of Scotland. Vicky and Dale along with their Arnold Holstein gin still wasted no time getting to work creating an original, bold range of Scottish Gins that were unique and innovative.
