Inverclyde Gin Original:
“Our Message in a Bottle. Inverclyde Gin is a tribute to the local area and its rich nautical history. The coastal botanicals including Sea Buckthorn and Samphire reflect the essence of the sea, while hints of Orange give our gin a fresh citrus twist.”
Port Strength Gin:
“In keeping with our nautical theme, we wanted to create our own Navy Strength gin, but with a local and innovative twist. The origins of ‘Navy Strength Gin’ has a strong storyline within Naval History, so it was the perfect second launch for the brand to take on. We therefore came up with Inverclyde Gin – Port Strength.
Our ‘Port Strength’ Gin is inspired by the strong people, shipbuilding and naval heritage of Inverclyde. Located at Latitude 55.9°N, Inverclyde’s town of Port Glasgow played a pivotal role in Inverclyde’s naval past. We wanted to pay homage to the town, our home, and thus have perfected our Port Strength Gin to 55.9% ABV. A bigger, bolder infusion of our coastal botanicals, coupled with a touch of ginger, creates the renowned Inverclyde Gin taste with a smooth and punchy finish.”
Titan Spirits Rum :
“We are proud of the achievements of the past and wish to acknowledge this history which in the main has completely disappeared. This ClydeSide Heritage has inspired us to create our first Spirit. Titan Spiced Rum.
We have carefully selected aged Caribbean rums to provide our perfect base spirit. We have infused this with Scottish Raspberries, Golden Syrup and exotic spices. This has been blended with the finest Caledonian water. Our rum retains its spiritual Caribbean DNA and is smooth enough to be enjoyed neat or with your favourite mixer. Titan’s unique flavour also brings a new twist to classic cocktails.”
Rudolph Chocolate Tile:
“We know the song, but here is the edible cute Rudolph tile. Made in luxurious milk or white chocolate, this makes the ideal gift for Santa’s helpers. This is perhaps the perfect stocking filler.”
Merry Christmas Medallion:
“We are here to satisfy all the sweet cravings throughout the whole of the festive period, from chocolate-filled advent calendars to our new Christmas Discs. These delightful discs can be made in luxurious milk, dark or white chocolate. Ideal as a small sweet treat to satisfy the urge for something sweet, or as a stocking filler.
