The Scottish Gin Society

The Scottish Gin Society

At the Scottish Gin Society, we love gin, it’s as simple as that!

Founded in 2015, the Society’s aim is to celebrate Scotland’s diverse and progressive range of gins and gin distilleries.  The Society’s continuously growing online community offers the ultimate place of choice for those seeking to learn more about Scotland’s booming gin scene and play an active part in it.

Everything we do at the Scottish Gin Society is borne from our passion for gin and we aim to provide information on everything that’s new and innovative and share our knowledge with fellow gin lovers.  Working closely with a range of distillers and bars, we regularly bring together the people who make great gin in Scotland and those who enjoy drinking it with our events across the country.

The Scottish Gin Society is also a key partner in the delivery of the new Scottish Gin Awards which we are proud to support as headline sponsor.

It's Good 2 Give

It's Good 2 Give

The construction of a £1 million holiday home gifted to families who have children with cancer has started following the fundraising success of It’s Good 2 Give.

The charity run by volunteer fundraiser Lynne McNicoll OBE has turned the turf on a plot of land on the banks of Loch Venacher and John Dennis Construction have started the seven month schedule of works to create The Ripple Retreat.  The new build project will create a three bedroomed 260m2 modern home which has been designed to exceptional standards by award winning architect, Tony Kettle, the designer of the Falkirk Wheel. 40 families are expected to use the retreat every year for short breaks of up to 7 nights each and the building will be ready for its first visitors in March 2016.

We still desperately need your help throughout our build project.  Can you supply interior fittings?  Sponsor a room?  Talk to Lynne McNicoll on 07901555352 or email lynne@itsgood2give.co.uk

This was followed by Hirda, an opera for Shetland composed by Shetland fiddler and composer, Chris Stout with Gareth Williams. The libretto was by Sian Evans.

The company has been extraordinarily successful in attracting new audiences for the art form hopes it is changing perceptions of what opera can be. At the moment the company is developing a new opera about distilling which will be performed in distilleries throughout Scotland. This is a collaboration between Gareth Williams and the Indie band Admiral Fallow. The librettist is Sian Evans. The opera will be premiered in Liam Hughes’ Glasgow distillery in autumn 2018.
