The Biggar Gin Co.

Biggar, South Lanarkshire, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

Biggar as a place has a reputation for innovation and punching above its weight and The Biggar Gin Co. is no exception. The Bigger Gin Co. was established by brothers Stuart and Euan McVicar in 2018. The brothers work from their base at the bottom of Tinto Hill in South Lanarkshire and their gin is based on a philosophy.

The philosophy centres on a ‘Biggar Mentality’. Small batch, quality crafted gins that mix tradition and innovation. Combining modern distilling methods whilst refining processes and adapting new methods to make unique gin. Gin that is made with passion, care and a focus on taste that reflects the local landscape but also pays homage to traditional gin.

Biggar Gin

The signature gin from The Biggar Gin Co. is crafted in small batches of 200 and combines some traditional and modern botanicals. On the nose, mellow, aromatic citrus with a hint of hedgerows marrying with gentle spice. On the palate, smooth and initially sweet followed by an almost creamy juniper and citrus burst. To finish, complex but smooth spice cooled by notes of lavender and rounded out by woody cassia.
