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.
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 chose to partner with The Bumblebee Conservation Trust and Trees4scotland.
London Dry Gin
London Dry Gin is both a flavour profile and a production method. London Dry Gins tend to follow the traditional, classic flavour of piney juniper, citrus and spice. Alongside juniper, botanicals in London Dry Gin often include orris root, angelica root, cassia bark, citrus peel and coriander, among the core botanicals. The result is a dry gin that features piney juniper along with bursts of citrus and warming spice and earthy, dry notes from use of botanicals such as cassia bark and coriander. Nothing synthetic can be added like flavourings or colours and nothing can be added post distillation apart from water and a tiny amount of sugar meaning all flavours come from distillation.
As the Scottish Rugby team had a long standing relationship with Eden Mill at the time when Ruaridh and Ryan were playing for the national team, The Garden Shed Drinks Company made the decision to partner with Eden Mill when they first launched back in 2017. Having worked on a few projects with Strathearn Distillery in 2018 and 2019, the founders decided to move production to Strathearn Distillery in 2019 and that is where all their expressions are now made.
