Coming Soon - Persie Gin
The man behind the world’s first touring gin club, Gin Club Scotland, has branched out to create his own gin brand.
For two years Simon Fairclough has toured the country with a boot-load of bottles, helping thousands of gin-lovers in their quest to find the perfect Gin and Tonic.
He has seen first-hand which gin styles score top marks every time. Whether you live in Brighton, Bangor, Belfast or Banchory, they all have one vital thing in common: that perfect interplay of aroma and taste.
So you could say he followed his nose...
Now, working out of a steading-turned-distillery in the former Persie Hotel at the foot of Glenshee in the Highlands of Perthshire, he is about to roll out his own Persie Gin brand,
There will be three very distinct styles of aromatic gin, created to suit the nose and palate of gin lovers far and wide: zesty citrus; herby & aromatic; and a sweet & nutty Old Tom.
Persie Gin is due to go live on-line with TheDrinkShop in May – but in the spirit of a touring gin club, the distiller has chosen 100 fellow gin drinkers at random, right across the UK, and given them a sneak preview of test samples in April.
Once it has the gin lovers’ seal of approval, it hits the website and then the streets!
