Run by husband and wife James and Deborah, Mackintosh Gin is an exciting start-up making a splash in the Scottish gin industry. Their gin is produced and bottled in the County of Angus using ingredients from all over the world. Handcrafted using a total of nine botanicals, the finished product is a smooth, floral gin with notes of citrus. The brand is inspired by Scotland’s rich heritage of Viking invasions and Roman, Pict and Celtic culture, infusing a passion for local tradition with the couple’s love of botanicals. Immersing themselves in the rapidly growing gin scene, Mackintosh Gin are adding their own unique stamp on Scottish craft gin culture.
What’s your ‘why’?
“We are huge gin fans ourselves and Mackintosh Gin gives us a platform to share our passion and talk about gin to anyone who will listen. We get immense satisfaction from meeting and talking with other gin fans, who ultimately become our gin pals.”
How has the team at Ashton McGill helped?
“Ashton McGill have been great for us in many ways. Not only have they kept us right in regards to compliance, but they have helped us understand how ‘business’ works. They have been instrumental in helping us grow with regular review meetings and by giving planning/strategy advice. They have sign posted us towards key people/organisations that we might not have come across otherwise. We envisage the team being with us as we grow and we look forward to an exciting future with them.”
