Client Showcase

Continuing on the theme of ‘absolute beezer examples of who we work for’, or ABEOWWWF, to simplify things (maybe not). This week’s Client Showcase business is the award-winning, Shipyard Gin.

Their story is this, “Born on the banks of the River Clyde, where Clyde Shipbuilding was once world renowned for its craftsmanship and skill which truly were the envy the world over. In the early 1900s ships that were built on the Clyde amassed to one fifth of all ships at sea.

Shipyard Gin is distilled in Scotland – made with botanicals, hand foraged from the banks of where these proud shipyards once stood. It is created by taking the values and craftmanship that underpinned the shipbuilding on the Clyde to create a premium well balanced craft gin; expertly infusing juniper, gorse and elderflower to name just a few, to create a citrus style gin with hints of coconut and vanilla from the gorse flower”.

Shipyard Gin’s story begins long before owner Andy Samuel distils his product – his grandfather John Samuel, who was a plater in the shipbuilding world, used to take a young Andy out foraging for berries and flowers to make wine for his friends and family. It’s easy to uncover where Andy’s passion for creating his gin comes from!
