Shipyard Gin 5cl

Shipyard Gin is distilled in Scotland, made with botanicals foraged from the banks of the River Clyde where the proud shipyards once stood. It’s a unique citrus based, hand-crafted spirit using seasonal gorse, elderflower and a tiny amount of heather to give the faintest of floral notes, to create a Scottish Gin that is truly special.

Producer Profile

Like many towns and cities across the UK, Greenock was a huge industrial powerhouse. When it came to shipbuilding, ‘Clydebuilt’ stood for quality, skilled craftsmanship and a passion for the craft. It was synonymous with ‘world class’ and known the world over. In terms of production, in its heyday the UK produced around 75% of the worlds ships and a third of that coming from the Clyde yards, falling just behind London and Liverpool.

Like many families from towns and cities along the River Clyde, Shipyard Gin’s founder Andy Samuel has close family ties to the shipyards. His grandfather John Samuel was a plater at Scott’s Shipbuilding. A skilled trade, where he spent most of his career cutting and preparing metal sheets for fitting to the ships hull.

John had the fascinating hobby of making homemade wine for family and friends from locally foraged berries. John and Andy would spend many a Sunday afternoon in the parks and moors picking the berries and flowers to be made into wine. Andy has used some of these botanicals in Shipyard Gin.
