Our first birthday, and our Scottish Gin Bar of Year award nomination!

When we opened our doors to the public one year ago this weekend we had a mission to provide a café-culture environment in the heart of Aberdeen city, and showcase the crafts of independent coffee growers, beer brewers, and distillers. We’re really proud of what we’ve achieved in just 12 months, which has culminated in the prestigious nomination for a Scottish Gin Bar of the Year award!

Our gin offering began with a modest selection of 6 locally sourced spirits, and we currently offer a considered curation of 40 gins from distillers large and small, including special editions. We strive to keep adding exciting additions to our shelf and we’re proud to say that almost 75% of our gins are from Scotland.

Our tagline is ‘Excite the Enthusiast’, and this was a key component in our submission to the Scottish Gin Bar Awards. We love nothing more than when we can inspire awe or delight in the pallet of a novice or experienced gin-drinker, or coffee-consumer; bringing them something different, something special, something craft. Especially when it’s local, or Scottish. We’re overjoyed with being considered for Scottish Gin Bar of the Year!

Look out for a special Gin Fizz cocktail on the menu this weekend in celebration of our first year in business and our award nomination 🙂
