We had a gintastic day at the Ben Lomond Gin launch in Luss Seafood Bar last week! This delicious London Dry style spirit incorporates natural botanics from around Ben Lomond and makes for some of the tastiest gin cocktails we’ve ever tried
Having tasted it ourselves at the Ben Lomond Gin launch, we highly recommend. And it’s only £33 a bottle.
Encased in a statement deep blue bottle, the packaging reflects the blackcurrant and locally foraged rowan berry infusion. The bottle also captures the colours of the natural flora of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.
Colin Matthews, CEO of Loch Lomond Group, said: “We spent a long time perfecting our recipe. We wanted to craft something unique for gin lovers. So the stunning area of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs inspired our gin.”
And not only is it tasty, it’s community-minded also. To protect the countryside that inspired Ben Lomond Gin, the brand entered a partnership with the John Muir Trust. The John Muir Trust is one of the leading conservation charities in the UK.
Adam Pinder from the Trust said: “The gin’s naturally occurring botanicals and exquisitely designed bottle will showcase Scotland’s wonderful landscapes.
“And the financial support it is providing to the Trust will enable us to continue our very important job of protecting and conserving wild land across the UK.”
