Sip and Set Sail with Inverclyde Gin

17 April 2024

Prepare to set sail and experience the trip of a lifetime as we say goodbye to last week's spirit, and bring aboard a captivating gin.

In this week's #RGRebelSpotlight, we turn our gaze towards Inverclyde Gin, a gin brand that goes the extra mile to contribute to the local community while crafting outstanding spirits. Get ready for a captivating encore as we spotlight a brand set to redefine the possibilities of a gin company.

Nestled along the rugged coastlines of Inverclyde, this gin brand unfolds like the pages of a maritime tale. In a dedicated pursuit to encapsulate the very soul of the coastal haven, the creators behind Inverclyde Gin immersed themselves in the local spirit.

The birthplace of Inverclyde Gin is the innovative hub known as The Start-Up Drinks Lab, founded by visionaries Hannah Fisher and Craig Strachan. Their aspiration is clear – to guide drinks brands of all sizes from conceptualisation to the shelf, achieving the feat in as little as three months.

Within the lab's small batch bottling facility, creativity flows not only for external ventures but also as a homage to the locals. Anchored in Port Glasgow, Inverclyde Gin becomes a tribute to the community that has embraced and supported its inception. This stands as a testament to the seamless fusion of tradition, innovation, and community spirit that defines Inverclyde Gin.

At the heart of Inverclyde Gin lies a deep-seated commitment to giving back to the community and the cherished landscape that inspires them. With a small but dedicated team of workers, their ethos revolves around involving locals in every aspect of the gin-making process, ensuring a genuine connection to the region.

In the quest to infuse their spirits with the essence of local heritage and innovation, Inverclyde Gin created the 'Port Strength' Gin. Inspired by the resilient spirit of Inverclyde's shipbuilding legacy and naval heritage, this unique concoction offers a fresh take on the classic Navy Strength gin. With an ABV of 55.9%, meticulously crafted to reflect the latitude of Inverclyde's own Port Glasgow at 55.9°N, every sip of 'Port Strength' Gin is a tribute to the town's storied past and enduring strength.

Get ready to embark on a journey that seamlessly melds tradition with innovation, as 'Port Strength' Gin sets its sails to captivate the palates and hearts of gin aficionados worldwide. Crafted amidst the majestic landscapes of Scotland, this exceptional spirit artfully blends a symphony of eight carefully selected botanicals. From the classic Juniper to the exotic Sea Buckthorn, each ingredient plays a vital role in creating an unforgettable flavour profile.

From the intricate design of the bottle to the meticulous selection of botanicals, each element is thoughtfully crafted to encapsulate the essence of Inverclyde. Every bottle bears the signatures of these passionate locals who contributed to its creation, along with a personalized neck tag indicating the individual responsible for bottling that specific gin.

This personal touch adds a layer of authenticity but also serves as a tribute to the collective effort behind each bottle, embodying the spirit of community and collaboration at the core of Inverclyde Gin's philosophy.

At Robert Graham, we pride ourselves on upholding and championing the idea of community within the whisky and spirit space. We firmly believe in the power of supporting small local businesses, not only for the exceptional products they offer but also for the profound impact they have on communities and the brand themselves.

Stay tuned for more insights into the remarkable world of the unusual and the extraordinary. #RGRebelspotlight.
