Biggar Spirits

Biggar, South Lanarkshire, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

With stone and bronze-age artefacts discovered on the hills surrounding the Scottish market town of Biggar, the area has provided shelter to people for an estimated 2,000 years. A lot has changed since this first settlement, with notable Scottish kings recognising the importance of the area, including King David I in the 12th century and Robert the Bruce in the 14th century. The town of Biggar has continued to grow, evolve and inspire its residents and visitors.

Brothers Stuart and Euan McVicar established The Biggar Gin Company in 2018 to create a range of Scottish spirits, including Scottish Gin. Stuart and Euan produce spirits based on their ‘Biggar Mentality’ philosophy from their distillery at the bottom of Tinto Hill in South Lanarkshire. The philosophy centres on a ‘Biggar Mentality’. Small batch, quality crafted spirits that mix tradition and innovation. Combining traditional distilling methods whilst refining processes and adapting new techniques to make unique spirits, including their range of Biggar Scottish Gins, made with passion, care, a focus on taste, and a fantastic flavour journey for the drinker.

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.

Biggar Cask Aged Gin Batch 1

Biggar Cask Aged Gin Batch 1 is the first in a series of cask aged gins. A limited edition release of only 200 bottles, signature Biggar Gin has been rested for 100 days in a 100 litre virgin French Oak cask. The influence of the cask and storage has created a cask aged gin that still features some of the original nose and palate from the signature Biggar Gin, but has also been imbued with notes of vanilla and some woody, earthy notes. Because of the influence of the wood Biggar Cask Aged Gin Batch 1 works well in a number classic cocktails including a Manhattan or a Martinez.

Awards for Biggar Cask Aged Gin Batch 1 include The Gin Cooperative Awards 2022:

• Silver Award - Cask Aged Scottish Gin Award

Details

Key Botanical(s): Rosehip, Rowan Berry, Pink Peppercorn
