How it all began…
It all started back in 2016 with two soulmates at a gin festival and a ‘challenge accepted’ moment. Two years later, after a lot of research and development, we launched Mackintosh Gin on 12th October 2018. Two years later we were crowned Scottish Gin of the Year at the 2020 Scottish Gin Awards with our Pineapple & Grapefruit Old Tom Gin, the following year we retained that title!
Created by husband and wife team James and Deborah through a love of gin, we have since been on a mission to bring high quality gin and a better drinking experience to more people. We believe that drinking less, but drinking better leads to better experiences, and this is something we encourage.
We are firm believers that anything is possible, and anyone can make a difference. We are dedicated to being an ethical brand dedicated to making wise choices to promote the well-being for humans, animals and the environment alike. We believe that we can use business as a source for good, whilst having fun and enjoying ourselves at the same time. We are setting examples for generations to come. This is our purpose.
