10% Off – McLean’s Gin, Something Blue Gin
Suitably named after the old poem, McLean’s created Something Blue to celebrate their wedding in June of 2018. Initially a Limited Edition release of just 150 bottles, Something Blue has since become their flagship spirit.
Something Blue marries our two favourite botanicals - tonka beans (Dipteryx odorata) and buchu leaves (Agathosma betulina), as well as 6 further botanicals - to create a gin like no other.
Something Blue toes the line between the "flavoured" and "dry" gin categories, somehow managing to be both - yet neither - simultaneously. The contemporary spirit has a floral nose, with lavender and violet leading. Some detect subtle (but welcome) hints of cardamom and fresh mint. On the palate, suggestions of fresh garden herbs and sugared almonds are complimented by summer berries drizzled in a light marzipan. The finish is long, dry, refreshing, just subtly sweet and not-so-subtly moreish.
Something Blue makes a beautifully refreshing G&T (recommended is Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic or Bon Accord Classic, garnished with pink grapefruit, mint or sliced cucumber) and is a great base for a range of cocktails; not least it's signature serve; The French 75.

About the Distiller
A colourful collection of craft spirits, born in a South-Glasgow tenement cupboard & raised in our new, purpose built “Gin Lab” in Strathaven.
Hand-crafted, bespoke, micro-batch gin, individually made and bottled in Glasgow, Scotland.
Our range of gins have been created using innovative distillation techniques. We have utilised vacuum distillation at cold temperatures, and botanic steam baskets, allowing for the freshness of certain botanicals to be more present. Specific botanicals have been carefully chosen to compliment the percentage alcohol charge of the still, and the cutting point of the distillation. This ensures a premium flavour in the hearts of the distillation.
