The Gin Gal was born organically through a passion for writing, a love of gin and a determination to create something that reflected Michelle’s sense of humour and point of view.
It has been a massive learning experience as Michelle feels she’s at an awkward age where the internet revolution initially passed her by. But a love affair with a smartphone changed all that and now all her photos, blogs and social media posts are done solely on her trusty Samsung. Michelle focuses on writing from the heart and on her own terms.
Gin is all about friendship. Discovering a fantastic new and inspiring brand and sharing them with gin buddies. Learning the stories behind the label, meeting the makers and learning from their insights is what inspires Michelle and what makes the industry so vital and special.
“For me, Scottish Gin represents home and all that’s special about my country. Communities working together to support each other; entrepreneurs harnessing the diverse skills of the people and harvests of the land to create world class products.
“I’m already planning for ISGD. What better than a day of great food, good friends and fantastic gin?!”
Michelle Hislop, The Gin Gal
