Glasgow Gin. Oor wee story.
Because Glasgow has always been close to our hearts, we wanted to create a gin that celebrated both the unique city and our family ties to its famous streets. Something fun, something playful, something Glasgow.
To capture such a distinctive character, we knew it had to be bold and cheeky but also have a soft and sweet side. The result is a gin unlike any other we’ve ever made – fun, fresh and fruity, yet with a surprisingly soft sweetness and sherbety finish.
Such a distinctive gin needed equally distinctive branding – and what better than Glasgow’s iconic and instantly recognisable Duke of Wellington statue?
The image of the Duke, his steed and the jauntily balanced cone has become known the world over; a byword for a city alive with irreverence, humour and playfulness – just like the gin that now bears its name.
Our Gin is distilled to our own special recipe at Illicit Spirits Distillery in the heart of Glasgow. It's a proud tribute to the people who inspired it, with every delicious drop capturing the true spirit of the city.

Gallas Guide Dugs
At Glasgow Gin, we regularly receive requests for sponsorship and products to be raffled off for charity.
While we know every cause is worthy, it’s simply not possible to help everyone. So instead, we’ve chosen to support a single charity that’s close to our hearts – Guide Dogs Scotland.
