It’s be-GIN-ning to look a lot like Christmas!

The Coig
has teamed up with our gin partners across the Clyde islands of Arran, Bute and Cumbrae to offer you the chance to experience the best of the west in a glass, with a bottle from each of our partners on offer to our lucky winners!

Lovingly crafted from their Claddach base, near Brodick, try sipping neat over ice, as Arran Gin is big enough to keep giving on its own. For a classic G&T: plenty of ice and your favourite tonic (a Mediterranean works well) with sweet citrus such as orange or pink grapefruit. For other garnishes, experiment with mint, rosemary or even thyme. Straying from tonic, Arran Gin works well with rose lemonade but try experimenting with bolder soft drinks where other gins may get overwhelmed.

The Isle of Bute is the inspiration behind our next small batch island gin, crafted with care in the heart of Rothesay using a traditional copper still. Isle of Bute Gin embodies the very best in craft production, with botanicals sourced from across the island and nearby areas. Recent winner of the gold medal for Distilled Gin of the Year at the Scottish Gin Awards, we have a bottle of their stunning Gorse Gin up for grabs!

Finally, Isle of Cumbrae Distillers is distinctively positioned as being one of the few all-female owned gin distilleries in Scotland. Recently launched, their signature Nostalgin celebrates the strong emotional connection and nostalgia Millport holds. In choosing botanicals, they have tried to capture the transformation people describe when making the short ferry journey from Largs to Cumbrae; an instant lifting of stress, to a feeling of calm serenity.

Each of these island gins makes the perfect gift, and for 3 lucky winners a bottle could be yours to restock your drinks cabinet for the new year.

Entries are only permitted from adults (age 18+) and ID will be required on receipt of prizes.
