IT is the season to be jolly and at Stirling Gin we’re making it our mission to spread warmth and happiness in as many places as we can as the countdown to Christmas reaches its final fortnight.
First up this week is our trip to the Prudential Insurance Christmas Fair at Craigforth. This is one of our favourite festive fairs and always one of the busiest but as you can see from the pic below we made sure we boxed clever!
Next we were back on the road and heading for The Kingdom of Fife and Balgove Larder, where SG brand ambassador Stewart Patience was on hand to make sure our #big-nosed super gin went down a storm at a tasting that, which as you can see from the pic below, was a visual delight!.
On Sunday co-owner June McCann was on duty at The Inglewood House Christmas Fair. Built in 1901 this stunning Jacobean mansion was voted Romantic Hotel of The Year in 2017 and as you can see from our pic it really was a winter wonderland!!!
But while June was To The Manor Born, Cameron and Lisa were back in Fife at ‘The Plant Factory’ Christmas Fair.
Now at SG we don’t like to ‘horse around’ but as you can see there were some interesting customers down Dalgety Bay way….
But don’t worry there was neigh chance this thirsty looking fellow was going to be served!
As you know Scotland was put firmly in the deep freeze over the weekend with temperatures seriously sub-zero and this threw up some interesting problems when the supply of our favoured Fever Tree tonic…well…froze!
But don’t worry we refused to be kept on ice and the Stirling Gin was soon flowing once again!
Well it’s almost time for us to leave but before we go on our merry way we thought we’d share one other little snippet and say a big thanks to our local MSP for Stirling, Mr Bruce Crawford.
As you may know, recently we had good news when we signed an exclusive deal to become the sole supplier of craft gin with ScotRail. Well this didn’t escape the attention of the eagle-eyed Mr Crawford who kindly recorded his delight at our good news in the Scottish Parliament where, as you will see below, he raised a motion congratulating SG!
Motion Number: S5M-09433
Lodged By: Bruce Crawford
Date Lodged: 06/12/2017
Title: Stirling Gin On Track for Success with ScotRail
That the Parliament congratulates Stirling Gin on securing a five-figure deal to stock its craft gin on ScotRail trains; understands that this deal means Stirling Gin will supply ScotRail with 1,000 miniatures per month; notes that Stirling Gin is unique in its use of wild Stirlingshire nettle in its distinctive blend, and commends June and Cameron McCann, the owners of Stirling Gin, on the continued success of the business with this latest venture.
Now you sir are a gentleman, a toff, a scholar and an acrobat!
Until next time #KeepSipping!
Stirling Gin isn’t it time you #GraspTheNettle!
