The Garden Shed Drinks Company was founded in 2017 by friends and Glasgow Warriors team mates Ryan Grant and Ruaridh Jackson along with their wives Maxine and Kirstin. From the Grant’s shed in the West End of Glasgow, they have created a small batch gin that not only tastes amazing but helps the environment too.
Garden Shed Gin is made using various botanicals including blackberries, dandelion root and lavender from their garden. The group of friends also wanted to create a gin that had a social cause and felt, with the current decline of bee populations and areas of Scotland that were stripped bare for logging over the centuries, bees and trees were the perfect partners. That’s why some of the money raised from the sale of Garden Shed Gin is donated to The Bumblebee Conservation Trust and Trees4scotland.
Maxine looks forward to telling you about their gin journey, the charities that they support and will give you the chance to try their smooth, floral gin.
Not to be missed!
