The Garden Shed Drinks Company

Glasgow, Glasgow City, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

The Garden Shed Drinks Company was founded in 2017 by friends and Glasgow Warriors team mates Ryan Grant and Ruaridh Jackson along with their wives Maxine and Kirstin. From the Grant’s shed in the West End of Glasgow, they decided to create their own gin.

They set about gathering various botanicals including blackberries, dandelion root and lavender from the garden. The group of friends also wanted to create a gin that had a social cause and felt, with the current decline of bee populations and areas of Scotland that were stripped bare for logging over the centuries, bees and trees were the perfect partners. That’s why some of the money raised from the sale of Garden Shed Gin is donated to The Bumblebee Conservation Trust and Trees4scotland.

Garden Shed Gin

Bottled at 45% ABV, Garden Shed Gin is packed full of florals and spices, which when distilled, creates a fresh smelling and tasting gin with a distinctively smooth long lasting finish. The Garden Shed Drinks Company felt it was important to give something back to nature so they partnered with The Bumblebee Conservation Trust and Trees4Scotland, donating a portion of their profits to help these good causes.

Côte-Rôtie Aged Gin

Like a lot of great ideas, The Garden Shed story began over a few glasses of Rouge, so it seemed fitting that the next creation would pay tribute to that. Through an innovative and unique idea, the team have combined their signature Garden Shed Gin with the delightful attributes of Côte-Rôtie. By ageing the gin in an old wine barrique, it has naturally absorbed some of the flavour left in its staves as well as a little colour.
