McLean's Something Blue Gin

ABV: 39.4%

Location: Glasgow

Originally crafted as a limited edition to celebrate the marriage of the makers Colin & Jessica in June 2018, McLean's Something Blue has proved so popular they introduced to their permanent range on the 6th anniversary of they day they first met. 

Something Blue focuses on Colin & Jessica's two favourite botanicals; the Tonka Bean and the Buchu Leaf.

Tonka Beans resemble small raisins with the nose of vanilla, marzipan and caramel, with hints of freshly cut grass, clove and magnolia. Buchu Leaves are native to Southern Africa and have an intriguing and invigorating fragrance with primary notes of blackcurrant, mint, mango and fresh, hand-rolled tobacco, with a herbal nuance.

These botanicals are then combined with 5 secret botanicals to produce McLean's most unusual, exciting gin.

Produced entirely by hand in small batches in Glasgow, the Something Blue Gin is made using a process first used in the early 17th century. 

Each bottle of McLean's Gin is bottled, labelled and sealed individually by hand.

Meet the maker

McLean's Gin started life in 2017 in a 1.5m sq. living room cupboard aka the 'gin lab' in a one bedroom teneflat in the southside of Glasgow. Following the marriage of founders Colin & Jess McLean in June 2018, the gin is now being 'brought up' in Strathaven, a village around 25 miles south of Glasgow. McLean's Gins are made using a cold compounding process which has been used in the production of gin since the 17th century.
