Find your perfect gin

A chance encounter on holiday was the spark that set Fred Stockton on his Scottish Gin journey from gin drinker to brand owner. Surrounded by crystal clear, aqua blue waters and white sand on a Caribbean beach, Fred tasted a fantastic orange based spirit and briefly chatted with the maker. The quality and the balanced flavour struck a chord with Fred and set the wheels in motion. Even on the plane home, Fred started thinking about his Orcadian roots. He began to subliminally sketch a ‘double crossed X’, the Old Norse symbol for ‘where there’s a will, there’s a way’. The symbol would eventually form part of the Alexander’s Gin logo and feature on the packaging.

A chance meeting in Royal Deeside with Peter Dignan and Richard Pierce, the co-owners of Lost Loch Spirits, spurred Fred on to begin the development of his Alexander’s Gin. With a clear idea of how he wanted his gin to taste, Pete and Richard helped Fred work through various iterations until they had the perfect flavour profile. Fred eventually became responsible for loading the still, helping with the distillation, and bottling and sealing each bottle by hand. Ultimately, Fred would like to open a distillery in his home town of Stonehaven, but like his Alexander’s Gin, good things take time. To this day, Fred never found out the Caribbean distiller’s name, so he crowned him ‘Alexander’ and dedicated this labour of love to the man himself.

Alexander's Gin

Alexander’s Gin is a traditional London Dry Gin distilled using eleven botanicals sourced from five continents along with Deeside Water, fresh from an ancient spring in the Cairngorms National Park. Juniper and bright orange citrus on the nose, with a floral hint. On the palate juniper leads with piney, earthy, citrus that moves into a distinct, lovely orange with a slightly sweet honey note. The medium finish provides a burst of orange citrus followed by a candied orange, floral, honey note and rich, creamy coating mouthfeel.
