Makar Cherry Gin is infused with fresh cherries and a sprinkling of pink peppercorn.

Bottled at 40% abv, the expression is recommended with tonic over ice or in a Collins-style serve.

The gin is the fifth expression to join the Makar range, which includes Original Dry Gin, Old Tom Gin, Oak Aged Gin, and Mulberry Aged Gin. The company also launched its inaugural single malt Scotch whisky in March this year.

Mike Hayward, co-founder of The Glasgow Distillery Company, said: “Portfolio development and innovation is something we hold in high regard – we’re constantly working with our talented team of young distillers to identify new and interesting products to share with our customers.

“Makar Cherry Gin balances the traditional bold juniper-forward notes that Makar is well known for, with delicious richness from the ripe cherries, accompanied by a hint of subtle spice from the pink peppercorns on the finish.”

Makar Cherry Gin has an RRP of £25 (US$32) for a 500ml bottle and is available to buy online from the distillery and select retailers.

In June this year, The Glasgow Distillery Company secured a £6 million (US$7.9m) investment to double its capacity for whisky production.
