Biggar as a place has a reputation for innovation and punching above its weight and The Biggar Gin Co. is no exception. The Bigger Gin Co. was established by brothers Stuart and Euan McVicar in 2018. The brothers work from their base at the bottom of Tinto Hill in South Lanarkshire and their gin is based on a philosophy.
The philosophy centres on a ‘Biggar Mentality’. Small batch, quality crafted gins that mix tradition and innovation. Combining modern distilling methods whilst refining processes and adapting new methods to make unique gin. Gin that is made with passion, care and a focus on taste that reflects the local landscape but also pays homage to traditional gin.
Crafted inbatches of 200 with traditional and modern botanicals. On the nose, mellow, aromatic citrus with hedgerows and gentle spice. On the palate, smooth and sweet followed by creamy juniper and citrus. To finish, smooth spice cooled by notes of lavender and rounded by woody cassia.
