Stirling Gin


Beginning life in October last year, Stirling Gin is already making steady progress in the sea of Scottish gin competitors and gaining recognition as one of the best new examples of the spirit around at the minute.

Created by June and Cameron McCann, the gin contains a recipe tweaked until the couple settled upon a blend of locally-sourced botanicals that they say offers a clean, citrus taste with just the right amount of heat provided by hand-picked, crushed local nettle leaves.

Rumour has it that Paolo Nutini is a fan.

Recommended garnish: A pinch of basil
