About

The founder of Glaswegin found himself discussing the irony of Edinburgh Gin appearing in Glasgow bars one too many times, and so he knew it was time for Glasgow to have a truly overt Glasgow Gin. The ethos was to create a frank, no frills, yet distinctive gin, representative of its namesake.

Cask Aged Gin

Cask Aged Gin is created as a result of gin being stored for a set amount of time in a wooden cask or with wooden chips. Although gin was traditionally transported around the world in wooden casks of all types, cask aged gins are anything but old fashioned. Thanks to the diversity of casks including sherry, port, whisky, bourbon and wine, Cask Aged Gin can provide some dynamic and rich flavour profiles as the gin is imbued with deep flavours and colours from the wood, often rich in flavours and pigments from it’s previous contents.

Production

This frank, no nonsense Scottish Gin is currently distilled at Illicit Spirits Distillery in the heart of Glasgow’s Tradeston in a repurposed railway arch. Planning is underway to create their very own Glaswegin Distillery while the brand establishes itself in the city, and beyond.
