Discover Scottish Gin

A Taste of the Glen

Shaken & Stirred, inspired by Scotland's gin makers.

In our Shaken & Stirred series, we ask Scotland’s Gin makers what cocktail works perfectly with their Scottish Gin and, just as importantly, how can we make it at home?

In this feature, we asked the team behind Badvo Gin and they made this sweet and citrus sharp gin cocktail, appropriately titled A Taste of the Glen, for us to recreate at home. All the botanicals that go into making Badvo Gin are picked on the family farm in the heart of Pitlochry, Perthshire so this is quite literally a taste of their glen.


• 50ml Badvo Gin
• 25ml Lime juice

• 25ml Sugar syrup
• 10 mint leaves, 1 to garnish

• Egg white

These measures are a guide only and can be tailored to suit your own personal taste.


Combine all ingredients and dry shake. Add ice and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Double strain into a coupe and garnish with mint leaf.

Have fun and enjoy your drink responsibly.
