The founder of Glaswegin found himself discussing the irony of Edinburgh Gin appearing in Glasgow bars one too many times, and so he knew it was time for Glasgow to have a truly overt Glasgow Gin. A gin for Glasgow, from the city that invented the world but yet to invent a truly Glaswegian gin. The ethos was to create a frank, no frills, yet distinctive gin, representative of its namesake.
This eagerly anticipated gin is currently being distilled at Illicit Spirits Distillery, in the heart of Glasgow’s Tradeston in a repurposed railway arch. Planning is underway to create their very own Glaswegin Distillery while the brand establishes itself in the city, and beyond.
