The Crag & Tail gin brand takes its name from a geological formation formed over millions of years. It’s formed when a glacier meets a particularly resistant rock formation, with the tail forming a long, sloping ramp leading up to the crag. Crag and tails are isolated from other high ground, often standing proud, bold and sheer presence can dominate the landscape. A famous example is the crag that Edinburgh Castle sits on while the Royal Mile slopes off down the length of the tail.  

Both hailing from Dundee, the co-founders of the Crag & Tail brand and Huffman’s, a drinks distributor, Ramone Robertson and Gregor Maclean were inspired by Dundee’s Law Hill, which just so happens to be a crag and tail formation. With an idea for the brand that connected it with the land, Gregor and Ramone set out to make a well rounded, versatile flavour profile that would work well as a gin and tonic, in a cocktail or simply neat over ice. Working with award winning distiller Lewis Scothorn at Distillutions, the end result is a Scottish Gin that focuses on classic simplicity with a contemporary twist.
