The journey towards setting up a distillery really began after Mark took voluntary redundancy when the opportunity arose at the beginning of 2014 in order to stop what had become a weekly commute to London over the previous two years.
Having done some extensive research on the brewing industry in the West of Scotland, Mark decided to set up a microbrewery in Glasgow to supply craft beer and so Jaw Brew was born. The beers were well received and a strong trade was built up over the next couple of years with Mark and Alison attending various trade shows to market Jaw Brew beer.
They noticed that not only was gin on the increase in general, but that the same customers who were buying Jaw Brew were also interested in buying gin. Before long a strategy was developed to increase the offering to their existing customer base and attract new ones,… and so work began on developing our delicious gin.
