The Glasgow Distillery Company  has added a new addition to their core range with the launch of a cherry gin.

The fifth addition to the award-winning Makar Gin family, the Makar Cherry Gin is created by infusing ripe, seasonal fresh cherries and a sprinkling of pink peppercorn in Makar’s Original Dry Gin, before being pressed to "release maximum flavour".

Available now on The Glasgow Distillery website and priced at £25 for a 500ml bottle, the versatile gin is the latest in a range of new products from the Glasgow Distillery Company, which recently sold out of its first batch of whisky – 1770 Glasgow Single Malt Scotch Whisky – in a matter of days.


Mike Hayward, co-founder of The Glasgow Distillery Company, said: “Portfolio
development and innovation is something we hold in high regard – we’re constantly
working with our talented team of young distillers to identify new and interesting
products to share with our customers.

“Makar Cherry Gin is perfectly placed for a gin market where consumers are
seeking, new and exciting brand offerings.

“Makar Cherry Gin balances the traditional bold juniper-forward notes that Makar is well known for, with delicious richness from the ripe cherries, accompanied by a hint of subtle spice from the pink peppercorns on the finish. A full flavoured gin, Makar Cherry is perfect for mixing and sharing with friends.”

Driven by a passion for all things drinks-related, Sean writes for The Scotsman extensively on the subject. He can also sometimes be found behind the bar at the world famous Potstill bar in Glasgow where he continues to enhance his whisky knowledge built up over 10 years advising customers from all over the world on the wonders of our national drink. Recently, his first book was published. Dubbed Gin Galore, it explores Scotland's best gins and the stories behind those that make them.
