The Monday Mash-Up VII

Sign of the Times

AT Stirling Gin we are really excited about the future and our plans to open the first ever customised gin distillery and visitor centre in our home city of historic Stirling.

As you can see from the pic below there was a little ‘Sign of the Times’ in the Stirling Observer last week when a Public Notice of our plans to convert the Old Smiddy blacksmiths was posted.

So we thought we’d take this opportunity to share this nice little snippet, pictured below, which provides another small indication that there are some very interesting times ahead for us.


With Stirling Gin set to move into what was once a Victorian blacksmiths we thought it would be nice to team up with our friends at the Old Stirling Facebook page to launch a competition to find the best historic pic of the top of old Stirling.

Old Stirling do a fantastic job of sourcing and sharing wonderfully atmospheric old pictures of our magnificent home city with the Facebook page having an impressive 14,000 members.

Below co-owner June McCann is pictured with Old Stirling creator Barry Ferguson in front of the impressive statue of King Robert The Bruce that dominates the impressive esplanade of Stirling Castle.

Naturally the prize for the best historic pic will be a bottle of Stirling Gin and along with Barry we are very much looking forward to sifting through the entries!

Meanwhile we are delighted that Stirling Gin is currently ‘Gin of the Month’ at one of Glasgow’s most prestigious and famous restaurants, the internationally renowned Brian Maule at Chardon d’Or.

The restaurant is arguably the premier fine French dining eatery in Scotland and it’s really pleasing that Chardon d’Or have applied a bit of…well…’French Polish’ to our wild nettle infused uber blend as you can see from the Stirling Gin & tonic garnished with something of a flourish below!


Finally co-owner Cameron McCann was out and about delivering a Gin masterclass to this group of ladies who do a fantastic job of supporting and fundraising for a well-known Scottish charity.

Unfortunately we have been sworn to secrecy and can’t share the charity’s name with you but we can whisper that the ladies very much enjoyed our ‘Bloody Scotland’ and ‘Stirlingtini’ cocktails and that when it came to Cameron’s servings of Stirling Gin the ladies were delighted to grasp the nettle!
