Gorgeous Scottish Gin launched their first gin expression in May 2020. However, the gin journey for founder Gail Sneddon began in 2017. With a love for the juniper spirit, Gail was inspired by a close friend to follow her dream and set-up her own gin business. With her husband Stewart’s help, a graphic designer, by September 2017 the couple had designed the brand and packaging for their new gin. Sadly, just a month later and out of the blue, Stewart passed away leaving Gail and their two daughters.
A few months later, Gail’s friend encouraged her to look at her late husband’s packaging designs and if there was a right time, it could be part of Stewart’s legacy to his family, to see the dream become a reality by launching their own gin business. Working with an Aberdeenshire based distillery, Gail worked on the development of her signature Scottish Gin expression, which was always going to be a classic London Dry lovingly bottled and packaged in the bottle designed by Stewart.
