STIRLING GIN is delighted to announce that it has signed an exclusive deal to become the sole craft gin served by ScotRail on the company’s services throughout Scotland and extending down south.
The five figure deal will see the Stirling based gin distiller supply ScotRail with 1000 of their signature 5cl Ginster miniatures per month.
The agreement provides further proof of the dramatic progress that has been made by SG during its two years in existence.
In September Stirling Gin was nominated in three finals categories of the inaugural Scottish Gin awards, including the blue ribbon London Dry Gin category.
In October the family owned gin distillers won The Best Start-Up Business award at the recent Forth Valley Chamber of Commerce finals.
Co-owner Cameron McCann, who created and owns the wild-nettle infused botanical blend with wife June, said: “Stirling Gin are delighted to have reached an exclusive agreement to supply our unique big-nosed craft gin on all of its trolley services.
“It is a real honour for a young business like SG to have our product on the 44 different ScotRail trolley services that criss-cross Scotland and also span the border into England.
“We are excited about the prospect of our distinctive blend, which has as its key botanical the wild Stirlingshire nettle, reaching a whole new cross-section of gin lovers and we can guarantee that the SG Ginster miniature will enhance the enjoyment of the journey experienced by ScotRail patrons.”
With Stirling Gin set to move into the Old Smiddy distillery in the shadow of Stirling Castle in spring 2018 the agreement with ScotRail undoubtedly offers further proof that SG are becoming one of the key players in the burgeoning Scottish craft Gin scene.
ScotRail’s Head of Customer Experience North, Garry Clark, is in no doubt that the addition of Stirling Gin to the respected rail franchise’s premium drinks selection will only add value for its customers.
He said: “At ScotRail we pride ourselves in sourcing top end products to enhance our customers’ travel experience with us and I have no doubt that the positioning of Stirling Gin as our sole and exclusive craft gin does just that.
“We are also delighted to welcome on board a product and a company who represent and identify themselves with the historic heartland of Scotland.
“With Stirling Gin’s new distillery set for opening in Stirling next spring, these are exciting times for the company and we welcome them warmly to our portfolio of premium suppliers.”
