Gins and other Tipples

Fancy an alternative Tipple? A warm Scottish cheers or "Slainte" from Callander's newest drinks emporium Spirit of Callander. Locally owned we are dedicated to permit you to taste and buy the best Scottish Whiskies, Gins and specialist spirits 7 days a week in Callander!

A celebration of Scottish drinks: Around the world Scotland is well known for the finest Whiskies. What many do not realise is Scotland now also creates the most delicious Gins, Stags Breath Liqueur and Dark Matter, Scotland's only locally produced rum. We even stock chilli Vodka, Xalt a Scottish Craft Vodka and Scottish Blackwood a 5 times distilled Scottish Vodka.

If Scottish Gin is more to your taste, Spirit of Callander is dedicated to introducing the tastiest and most unusual Scottish Gins around. Historically Gin was always clear, super strong, one flavour and drank with tonic. Today there are a range of Gins to suit all tastes and occasions. At Spirit of Callander we not only sell one of the largest stocks of Gin in Scotland but we also have regular Gin Tasting Sessions to allow you try something new or a new take on an old favourite. Like Scotland's Whiskies, Gin now comes from every region of Scotland and the UK.

Here are a few of the Gins we keep in stock: Bathtop Gin is a Sloe Gin, Pink47 is a London Dry Gin and Edenmill is a relatively unknown but delicious St. Andrews Gin. Misty Sky is one of Scotland's Island Gins, Rose Rose Gin is a 57% Navy Strength Gin from the Dunnet Head Distillery at Scotland's most Northern point (they also stock their 41.5% Holy Grass Vodka). Our Strathearn, Colonsay and Stirling and Edinburgh Gins are extremely popular as are the very local Callander Gins from McQueens Gin which comes in 6 flavours.

McQueens Gin is Handmade in Callander is our Award Winning local Callander Gin (all are 42% ABV). Owned and run by Vicky & Dale McQueen they have made it their mission to "provide blissful enjoyment, and a wee buzz, in the form of their unique gin". Their Distilled Gin is available in 6 varieties and all can be tried at the Spririt of Callander:

  • Superior Dry Gin: The nose is juniper led with a clean distinct forestry aroma.
  • Spiced Choc Orange Gin: Here Orange & Chocolate create a dark and fruity spicy gin.
  • Sweet Citrus Gin: We have created a sweet and distinctive gin using multiple citrus fruits.
  • Chocolate Mint Gin: Many have said, you have got to be joking! We say, try it.
  • Smokey Chilli Gin: Dale's creation.
  • Mocha Gin: drinking coffee to round out a great meal in the evening is just wrong!
