MC QUEEN - FIVE CHILLI
VICKY AND DALE MCQUEEN HAD THE AMBITIOUS PLAN OF STARTING UP THEIR OWN DISTILLERY WHERE THEY COULD CREATE AND PRODUCE GINS THAT WERE UNIQUE, ORIGINAL AND ADDED SOMETHING NEW AND EXCITING TO THE WORLD OF SCOTTISH GIN.
As engineer Dale and chef Vicky McQueen sat and enjoyed a gin in their garden, the idea is born to combine their technical and culinary skills with their true passion – gin ! In 2016 the Trossachs Distillery was established based in Callander in the lower Highlands of Scotland. They wasted no time getting to work creating an original, bold range of Scottish Gins that were unique and innovative. With demand and growth over the next fews years came the opening of the Robert McQueen building in 2019. The new 6,200ft² distillery will allow Dale, Vicky and the team to increase production capacity by over 1000%.
Five Chilli is an harmonious blend of five of the hottest chillies on the planet; Ghost, Carolina Reaper, Guajillo, Scorpion and Orange Habanero, creating a heat like no other gin. This gin gives a warming sensation on the palate.
Best served in a tall glass over ice topped with ginger beer garnished with a green or red chilli and a grapefruit spiral.
