The brief we set ourselves for our first product was to produce a modern yet classic gin – a smooth, sophisticated spirit that is equally at home served on its own, with tonic, or at the heart of a vibrant cocktail.
The result is a gin with top notes of juniper and bright citrus, balanced with a global blend of botanicals that reflect Dundee’s maritime history as one of the most well-connected sea ports in Great Britain, and combine to give a uniquely distinctive balance and flavour to our Verdant Dry Gin.
Why ‘Verdant’? Well, in one sense, the word conjures up an image of lush green plants and botanicals - the heart of a fine gin. But to those who know Dundee the word is also synonymous with its jute and weaving industry, encapsulating the spirit of the city and a flourishing gin business within it. Our logo depicts the memorial on top of the extinct volcano around which Dundee has grown, and has become a favourite spot to appreciate the views across the Tay and beyond.
