After just 1 year since the launch of McQueen Gin, Trossachs Distillery needs to expand by purchasing a second Still and we need your help.

by Trossachs Distillery Limited - home of McQueen Gin in Callander, Scotland, United Kingdom

McQueen Gin launched on the 3rd of June in 2016, arriving in a fast growing market with a new style of gin. Everything from the beautiful Cobalt blue ceramic bottles to the distilled signature botanicals, has made this gin unique.

Dale & Vicky McQueen started their journey with a desire to have a change of career and produce fabulous gin. Dale from an engineering background and fascinated by the distillation process, and Vicky as a retired chef, combined their skills and produced 4 unqiue gins.  Sweet Citrus, Smokey Chilli, Mocha and Chocolate Mint. Four gins that stood out in a market crowded with undistinguished Dry Gin. Little Maggie the copper Still, was ordered from Germany and the task to find a home for the new venture started.

After just a year in production, McQueen Gin is ready to scale up and for this we need a second Still.  Our crowdfunding project offers supporters a variey rewards, including; access of  2 exclusive limited edition (500 bottles of each) gins, signed and numbered by the Head Distiller. The 2 new gins will not be for sale via any other route other than direct from McQueen Gin. They will be made using sets of botanicals not combined in our Gins before. Each of the 500 gin club supporters will also get their name engraved on a mini plaque, placed on Little Maggie - showing your support for all eternity, as well as a certificate of thanks. Other offers include private gin tastings, personal tours and corporate events.

2 people will have the opportunity of designing & creating their own personal gin & brand. We will work with you up at the distillery to create a personal gin, help with label design and bottle you 500 x 50cl bottles of gin for your personal use. You can even sign and number each one.

It is exciting times for McQueen Gin and we hope that you will continue to support us into the future.

Thank you.
