On this episode of Scran, we headed out for lunch in Glasgow with actor and author Sam Heughan.

In a world exclusive, Sam shares with me his not-yet-released gin, a follow-up to Sassenach whisky and tequila.

As well as a world first gin tasting, Sam told me all about creating the gin, what botanicals have been used and what inspired it.
