The latest episode of our podcast Scran is now live.

Categories: , ,

This week on Scran we chat all things Scottish gin with Gin Cooperative founders Natalie and Martin Reid and author of Gin Galore, Sean Murphy.

With International Scottish Gin Day falling on 24 October this year, Martin and Natalie discuss how and why they set it up - a few years after founding the Gin Cooperative.

Sean chats about the rise in popularity of Scottish gin and what can be learned from whisky, and we all mull over our favourite gins and why flavoured options seem to be on the rise.

Finally I am back in my kitchen, this time making a Scottish G&T with a twist.
