Distinctly Scottish Notes...........

 It was while enjoying music and possibly a little too much gin that the conversation began.....Nigel and Beverley with a background in the drinks industry, Jamie with a background in the music industry and his partner Tanya -each with an interest in both fields, so why not combine the two?......music and gin?........and so with a little more music and a little more gin The Gael Signature Scottish Gin story began.....

 Our Inspiration 'The Gael' is a Scottish fiddle tune which was originally written by Dougie MacLean as a commission for The Loch Ness Visitor Centre. It subsequently featured in the soundtrack for the movie The Last Of The Mohicans and is played by pipe bands and fiddlers the world over. It carries a special part in all our lives (Dougie is Jamie's dad) and it seemed the natural musical choice to incorporate in our gin.

 For our signature gin our aim was 'Scottish'. Using Malted Barley we distil in a bespoke hybrid still (copper pot linked to copper column) five times to achieve a high quality base spirit. Our botanicals including Scottish Heather are added to the base spirit by a combination of compounding and macerating and they blend to give the unique smoothness, flavour and notes. The result is a smooth gin with a citrus/heather aroma followed by a subtle juniper/slightly spicy flavour and a warm finish.
