A distinctive dry gin with unmistakable McQueen characteristics. The nose is juniper-led with a clean and distinct woodland aroma. A burst of juniper gives way to a light spiced ending with a crisp lime finish.
Vicky and Dale McQueen had the ambitious plan of starting up their own distillery where they could create and produce gins that were unique, original and added something new and exciting to the world of Scottish Gin. In 2016 the Trossachs Distillery was established based in Callander in the lower Highlands of Scotland. They wasted no time getting to work creating an original, bold range of Scottish Gins that were unique and innovative. With demand and growth over the next fews years came the opening of the Robert McQueen building in 2019. The new 6,200ft² distillery will allow Dale, Vicky and the team to increase production capacity by over 1000%.
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.
The Trossachs Distillery, home to McQueen Gin, can be found in the heart of the Trossachs National Park, Scotland’s oldest National Park, which is the gateway to Loch Lomond. Just a short drive from the picturesque town of Callander, the distillery, now housed in the renovated Robert McQueen building, offers panoramic views over the stunning landscape from its elevated position. The team have seen impressive growth over the last few years and one of the latest improvements includes a state of the art bottling line, which sees them finish a case of gin every 8 seconds, allowing capacity of 5 million bottles per year on a single shift 5 day pattern.
