McQueen Gin

Callander, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

Vicky and Dale McQueen had the ambitious plan of starting up their own distillery where they could create and produce gins that were unique, original and added something new and exciting to the world of Scottish Gin. Vicky and Dale used their background in Software to review and crunch the feedback data from 3,000 tasters who tried 100 potential recipes. Based on this feedback Vicky and Dale narrowed down the recipes until they were left with a few that were both different and tasted great. Their gins provide drinkers with the sense of adventure that they both have themselves, with intriguing flavour profiles and a truly exciting product range.

In 2016 Trossachs Distillery was established based in Callander in the lower highlands of Scotland. Vicky and Dale along with their Arnold Holstein gin still wasted no time getting to work creating an original, bold range of Scottish Gins that were unique and innovative.
