Stirling Distillery, situated in the shadow of Stirling Castle, today launch their limited edition Platinum gin.
Created to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, there will be only 500 of these special bottles created. Gin lovers can pour themselves a G&T fit for a Queen and party like a royal at Jubilee celebrations across the UK with this eye-catching bottle.
As Stirling Distillery has a royal connection – James VI is said to have stabled his horses where our ‘Old Smiddy’ building sits – they wanted to pay homage to Her Majesty and her incredible 70 years of service with this striking bottle of their nettle-based classic gin.
Designed by graphic designer Megan Raine and distillery co-founder June McCann, the bottle celebrates the Stirlingshire nettles that gives their gin the unique flavour of Stirlingshire’s countryside. Presented in a regal laurel wreath design with royal crowns hidden through the design, those who get their hands on a bottle can win tickets to a gin tasting at the distillery if they find the crown locations and tag @Stirlingdistillery on social media.
Hand-dipped in a platinum coloured wax seal, the bottle is filled with Stirling Distillery’s signature nettle gin. Made with carefully chosen botanicals including basil and citrus peel to create a complex spirit, the smooth, lingering finish carries a peppery tang that is both spicy and dry. By using local nettles the distillery are working to provide a sustainably sourced spirit.
On the 2nd and 3rd June, all distillery gin tastings in the Old Smiddy will be presented in beautiful tea sets for celebratory ‘G and afternoon tea’ tastings. Sip their Bloody Scotland cocktail in a china tea cup as Stirling Castle – the childhood home of Mary Queen of Scots – looms above you. Book a tour online here:
