Since we started production in January 2018, we have always strived to use our town’s rich history and iconic buildings in our branding. Our bottle was a stock bottle from France and it’s shape reflected the shapes of both Linlithgow Palace and St Michael’s Church spire. The spire has become synonymous with Linlithgow over the years and is seen as a huge visitor attraction for the town.
After spending 33 years in Information Technology and a health scare we found ourselves at a bit of a loose end, we were having a blue sky discussion one night when the subject came round to what will we do with our lives? With help from the gin cocktails we were drinking, Alyson said "Why don't we make our own?" After all, we both have always loved the idea of having our own distillery.
Now Ross, a lifetime lover of malt whisky and bourbon had always enjoyed a nice gin and in the last few years had started to drink it as his preferred long drink. So the idea was born. Could we really pull this off?

The vision So the discussion very quickly came round to how can we be different?
There has been an influx of new gins on the market in the last 5 years and whilst most gins use a combination of similar botanicals, we needed to come up with something to make LinGin stand out.
How will LinGin be different? Our local botanicals. This is what makes LinGin unique and that the recipe has been honed by our local tasters to give a truly community developed experience.
'Crafted with the spirit of Linlithgow'
