An oak aged gin that retains a strong gin character is a triumph, and it’s precisely what has been achieved in Makar Oak Aged Gin.
Founded in 2014 and named forone of Glasgow’s original distilleries, Glasgow Distillery Company has a long and fruitful history of making world class spirits with love and dedication to quality. Each of their ranges is handcrafted using only the best distilling equipment (a gorgeous still named Annie) and the finest ingredients. They are thrilled to be able to present the first and only gin brand to be produced in metropolitan Glasgow.
Rested in a virgin American oak barrel, strong pine and herbal notes come through immediately in Makar Oak Aged Gin with soft, rounded vanilla swiftly following. An unusual pairing of rosemary and soft cinnamon like flavours are brought together by these vanillins. The oak is at a perfect level, prominent but not obscuring the juniper or citrus.
