Handpicked for you – curated deals for 5pm customers

Gin is no longer a London drink – it’s Scottish.

Seventy percent of gin consumed in the UK is made in Scotland.

From Shetland Reel, which is made in the most northerly point of the Shetland Isles, to Glasgow’s Makar Gin, Scottish gin is created in and takes inspiration from all points of the country.

Today’s Handpicked Deal invites you to experience Scotland’s second national drink (or should that now be it’s first?) in The Finnieston bar in Glasgow with a Scottish Gin Tasting Experience.

The gin tasting is held on the following dates, 3pm-6pm:

Saturday 26th January

Sunday 27th January

This deal allows you to pick the date you wish to attend. Alternatively, with these available dates, you’ve found yourself an ideal Christmas gift.

The deal includes a Finnieston Club cocktail on arrival which is then followed by a guided gin tasting featuring three Scottish gin tasters with a selection of tonics and garnishes.

The gin tasting is accompanied by bread and olives nibbles.

Scottish gin

Scottish gin has rocketed in popularity in recent years.

Over 40 Scottish gins have launched in the last few years alone.

The majority of the gins are artisan craft brands with many distillers utilising local produce in their botanicals, like sugar kelp in Isle of Harris Gin and hand foraged Stirlingshire nettles in Stirling Gin.

Each Scottish gin tends to have its own recommended garnish, like fresh mint for Daffy’s Gin and frozen raspberries with Eden Mill Love Gin.

Today’s Handpicked Deal gives you the opportunity to learn more about these gins and enjoy them with the bartender’s recommended garnish and serve of tonic.

Finnieston Gin Bar

With its dark wooden panelling, roaring fire and unpretentious vibe suggesting cosy local pub but its comprehensive drinks list, sophisticated food menu, and stylish touches pointing to slick city bar, The Finnieston manages to be just the right combination of both.

The Finnieston is one of Glasgow’s premier gin bars, with over 60 varieties on the menu and staff with a comprehensive knowledge of all things relating to the spirit.

Unsurprisingly the bar is situated in Finnieston, one of the most hip areas of Glasgow, and close to all the restaurants and shops in the area as well as the Hydro, SECC and Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.
