Time To Gin And Bear It
AS you know we at Stirling Gin like to keep ourselves busy and the last few days have been manic by any standard, as the festive season kicked-off in earnest….even if it’s still November…well just!!
So we’ll start our weekly Mash-Up in Glasgow with SG’s appearance at The Country Living Magazine Christmas Fair, held at the Scottish Exhibition Centre.
With an estimated 8000 people attending over the four days, business, as you’d expect, went…well…er…like a fair!
Our first picture shows three happy ladies who have just snapped up our bespoke Jutco Gin Bags, stocked with our flagship 70cl big bottles, but who is that cheeky chappy in the background? Well of course it’s the baby faced assassin himself our brand ambassador Stewart Patience, beaming as his SG sales figures start to mount!
We’re delighted to report that sales of special bespoke Christmas stocking have been a sheer delight! (Get it?)
But it was the 5cl Ginster, Highball Glass and Fever Tree Tonic that was top of the festive pops for SG at the SEC!
But while business boomed in Glasgow, co-owner Cameron McCann was at the Hillfoots rugby club to host a gin tasting for 50 thirsty rugby players and as you can see Cameron put on a nice spread!
But we at Stirling Gin like a bit of culture and we were delighted to discover that the Gents at Hillfoots RFC appreciate their poetry and in fact famously have a fine piece of verse, “At Home at last – We think”, which hangs in The Woolpack Inn, Tillicoultry, dedicated to the club!
And here it is:
“Inside the smoke filled crowded bar,
O’ a howf that’s called the Woolpack,
A motely crew from near & far,
Drank well & shared their crack.
The talk it was all o’ the Rugby game,
Played wi’ the ba’ not rounded,
Whose tactics seemed set to bruise & maim,
And here the Hillfoots Club was founded.
Now we’re sure you’ll agree that’s poetry!
Our next appearance was at The Dunblane Hydro where June and Elle were serving a specially created cocktail named aptly ‘So Precious’ to support Neonatal, Maternity and Paediatric Services within Forth Valley NHS.
As you can see from the smiles on the faces of these glamorous ladies our classic gin-based cocktail proved just the drop!
The picture below says it all!
We’ll finish this week’s Mash-Up with the Princess of the Pop-Up bar, aka Elle, getting ready to serve up….a sight for sore eyes, we think you will agree!
Stirling Gin….isn’t it time you #GraspTheNettle?
