The Garden Shed Drinks Co. – Since January this year, Peckham’s has been stocking one of the newest additions to the craft gin industry. Excitingly, this new gin was born right on our doorstep! Yes, the Garden Shed Drinks Co. is a new small batch craft gin distillery based in the West End of Glasgow. The masterminds behind this company have an equally exciting day job – as 2 professional rugby players for the Glasgow Warriors! Ryan Grant, Ruaridh Jackson and their wives saw the first batch of their gin being made at the end of last year… and we’ve been struggling to keep it on our shelves in Peckham’s ever since!
We’ve even had some special requests to ship the gin internationally!
So apart from the fact that the gin is made by 2 of Glasgow’s Rugby champions, what else makes Garden Shed Gin so great?!
Flavour Notes & Botanicals
The Garden Shed Gin has a wonderful, delicate taste and character, perfect for a Spring/Summer aperitif in the evening sun 🍸☀ ! It is made using 14 botanicals, some of which are home-grown in the West End of Glasgow, including blackberries, dandelion root and lavender. Serve with ice, tonic and garnish with fresh blackberries!
What makes the Garden Shed Gin even more special to Peckham’s is that the team behind it is not only passionate about gin – but also about the environment. Supporting local charities including Trees 4 Scotland and the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, The Garden Shed Drinks Co. is producing quality craft gin in the most environmentally sustainable way possible! The best place to check out what they’re up to is their Instagram page.
So I think it’s safe to say that Team Peckham’s is a fan! If you haven’t already given Garden Shed Gin a try, pop in to Peckham’s and grab a bottle! You can even now order it from the comfort of your sofa as we are shipping from our online store!
