Scottish gin map unveiled for World Gin Day

7th June, 2017 by Nicola Carruthers

Restaurant bookings website 5pm has launched an updated gin map of Scotland featuring 53 distilleries ahead of World Gin Day on 10 June.

The Gin Map of Scotland features 25 new gins

The extensive map features 25 Scottish gins created in the last year, including LoneWolf Gin, the spirits arm of BrewDog; two gins from Orkney – Kirkjuvagr and Johnsmas; Misty Isle Gin from Skye; and Ginerosity, a social enterprise gin from Edinburgh.

The colourful infographic includes the names of the gin brands, location, botanicals and recommended garnish.

“As a restaurant bookings website, 5pm always champions Scottish food and drink,” said Ronnie Somerville, 5pm founder.

“The astounding number of gins made in Scotland can clearly be seen in our new map which is a lot fuller than last year’s.

“Scottish gin continues to be hugely popular with 5pm customers which is why we are delighted to offer excellent value gin tastings and restaurant offers to accompany the launch of our new map.

“Almost a year after the launch of the 2016 map we still receive regular requests for a printed copy which is why this year we have put it up on our website for gin lovers to download it for free.”

“This World Gin Day, take a look at our map for ginspiration and make your G&T a Scottish one.”

The 5pm Gin Map of Scotland is a 2017 update of last year’s online map.
