The Garden Shed Drinks Company was founded in 2017 by friends and Glasgow Warriors team mates Ryan Grant and Ruaridh Jackson and their wives Maxine and Kirstin. From the Grant’s shed in the West End of Glasgow, they decided to create their own gin.
They set about gathering various botanicals including blackberries, dandelion root and lavender from the garden. The group of friends wanted to create a gin with a social cause. With the decline of bee populations and areas of Scotland stripped bare for logging, bees and trees were the perfect partners. That’s why some of the money raised from the sale of Garden Shed Gin is donated to The Bumblebee Conservation Trust and Trees4scotland.
Bottled at 45% ABV, Garden Shed Gin is packed full of florals and spices, which when distilled, creates a fresh smelling and tasting gin with a distinctively smooth long lasting finish.
