The 'Gin Spa', which has been launched by the owners of Gin 71, Glasgow's first dedicated gin bar, across from their flagship Merchant City location.

Gin sales have reason exponentially over the last decade, with Scotland responsible for 70 per cent of the gin which is sold in the UK.

The burgeoning gin industry is thought to be worth over £1 billion annual to the Scottish economy, with products ranging from traditional gin drinks, to cocktails, to advent calendars adding to sales.

Now Gin 71 has gone one step further, and while gin isn't included in the ingredients for their treatments, they have teamed up with Justbe, to create botanical inspired products to complement their treatments, which include facials and massages.

The treatments come with a complimentary gin cocktail, and there are even packages allowing you to spend a day being pampered and enjoying gin, as well as afternoon tea.

Owner Paul Reynolds told The Huffington Post: “We are focusing on botanical-inspired products for our treatments. We also have a complimentary gin bar that we give to our guests after their treatment

"Where we want to take this journey is the customer is experiencing gin from the minute they come through the door.

"That way the scent of juniper and lime is what they experience as soon as the door opens."
