The Gin Cooperative, a Scots business that was established in 2017 to help gin drinkers discover, explore and learn more about Scottish Gin has just launched a new gin subscription service.

The Scottish Gin subscription from The Gin Cooperative provides gin lovers with the chance to, monthly, discover and learn more about a Scottish gin, enjoy it with paired mixers and attend an online meet the maker event.

The team behind the business have spent the last three years working in the Scottish Gin industry and launched an online shop in December 2020; with this latest initiative offering fans the opportunity to taste, enjoy and learn.

Speaking of the new service, Natalie Reid, co-founder of The Gin Cooperative said: "We wanted to create the type of gin subscription we would buy.

"It puts the focus on the gin and the brand. With our exclusive online subscribers event each month we’re bringing consumers together with the brands so they can understand and learn more about each months Scottish Gin.

"Along with the gin we provide two paired Scottish tonics or mixers, its a great chance for us to showcase not only Scotland’s amazing Scottish Gin producers but also the growing number of brilliant producers of tonics, mixers and soft-drinks".

Martin Reid, co-founder of The Gin Cooperative added: "We’re delighted we’re in a position where as a membership based business we can now support our members directly with our gin subscription service it allows us to buy direct from our members and producers.

"We’re also delighted our packaging can be 100% recycled after we partnered with Flexi-Hex, an innovative packaging system.

"We’re also providing subscribers with a detailed digital booklet each month, rather than printed, with lots of info about the content of each subscriber box. All these little things add up to a greener user experience".

The first subscribers box features Isle of Raasay Hebridean Gin from the Isle of Raasay Distillery and two Scottish tonics from Walter Gregor’s Tonics.

For subscribers who don’t like tonic, this is substituted with two Scottish soft drinks from Summerhouse Drinks along with a special subscribers gift.

Each months subscription box also includes an invitation to a meet the maker online event.

Alasdair Day, co-founder of R&B Distillers said: "We are delighted to be part of The Gin Cooperative’s new Scottish Gin subscription service.

"Since we shut our award-winning visitor centre to the public in 2020 due to Covid, we’ve continued to develop new ways of sharing the story of our Isle of Raasay Distillery and our Isle of Raasay Hebridean Gin.

"Through online events and tastings, we’ve been able to tell our story to a truly global audience with participants joining us from around the world.
