Nestled among the purple hills and mossy trees of Scotland, whisky distilleries have quietly been turning their attention to that most colonial of spirits: gin. Many independent distilleries across the country have been investing their time and energy into ”mother’s ruin” as a reaction to the very slow timeline that is whisky production. Gin, on the other hand, is a much quicker process, meaning that a profit can be turned in a matter of weeks rather than the years that whisky takes. Gin also allows for more experimentation, with many of these new brands using local botanicals harvested from the beautiful Scottish countryside. The result is this eclectic and curious range of Scottish gins now flooding the market.Katy Smail
