Welcome To Our Pink Lady Gin!

2020 has been a strange year for all of us. At Stirling Gin Distillery, we are constantly adapting each day to the situation around us – providing Gin for everyone’s lockdown needs, taking virtual gin tasting tours – as well as supplying hand-sanitiser to front line services. 

So, that’s why – here at Stirling Distillery, we are excited to bring you some good news. It is our pleasure to officially announce the launch of our very own pink gin, ‘The Pink Lady’. With Pink gin being the drink of the moment, it was only fitting for us to keep up with the trends of the ever-evolving Gin industry and release our very own. Inspired by the co-founders daughter Elle McCann and with artwork from former Forth Valley College art student Estelle Redding, this is a wonderful addition to the ever-expanding Folklore collection. 

With Stirling Distillery’s Folklore Collection being steeped with stories of Scottish History, the Pink Lady gin comes with a story of its own, that in keeps with the Folklore tradition.  A young, noble and beautiful woman was betrothed to a brave Scots knight who defended Stirling castle against the English siege of 1304. That very night, her true love died during the battle. She died shortly after, heartbroken at the thought of never seeing her true love again. Her lonely spirit is said to be wandering the Castle and the Kirk Tower in the dead of night in her elegant and distinct pink robes. 

Distilled using our main still Flora, the Pink Lady is a refreshing gin with 12 delicious botanicals carefully selected by our head distiller Laura which includes rose petals, pink peppercorn and pink grapefruit. It is delicately fragranced with juniper and spices as well as floral and pepper to leave your taste buds craving more. To maximise its delight, we recommended serving over ice with a slice of pink grapefruit and Fever-tree Mediterranean tonic, or if you fancy spicing things up a little add a slice of fresh chilli to create an even more unique experience.  

Co Founder June McCann quotes “Our Pink Lady Gin inspiration came from yet another Folklore story here in Stirling, of a heart broken noble woman of Stirling in 1300 and with our very own Pink Lady daughter Elle who now has a gin to match 90% or her wardrobe!!!”

This is an exciting new launch for the team at Stirling Distillery, who are showing that even though there may be a global pandemic – life and business must go on. With other additions to their expanding collection such as the release of their ‘Sons of Scotland’ Whisky later this month, it is fair to say that the sky is the limit for this craft distillery.
