An ideal stocking filler for any gin lover, a new calendar is launching that celebrates the dogs of Scottish gin - with some of the money raised going to a range of charities.

Combining the love of dogs and gin, the calendar features pictures of the four-legged favourites submitted from around the Scottish Gin community, by everyone from distilleries to bars.

The brainchild of Tabatha and Phil Cox, the husband and wife team behind Pentland Hills Gin, the calendar features their beloved chocolate Labrador, Panza, who also appears on their Pentland Gin labels.

Other entries include Sausage, the inspiration behind Persie’s Dachshund Gin Liqueur, Connie and Amber from Gin 71 and Dawson from Isle of Skye.

Each of the 12 entries have their own chosen charities and an exclusive gin cocktail recipe for those who buy the calendar to enjoy.

Speaking with the Scottish Gin Society, Tabitha said: “We had great fun compiling the calendar – clearly there are a lot of dogs out there running Distilleries.

“I’m delighted that Scotland’s Bravest Manufacturer, who employ Veterans, were able to undertake the printing of the calendar and that so many charities will benefit from the sales. All I can add is a big WOOF from Panza, he and his canine pals will certainly be the stars of 2020.”

The calendar will be available to buy from participating distilleries, bars, websites, shops and events and has an RRP £15 (including postage), with £6 from every calendar being paid by the participants directly to their chosen charity.
