Gin Map of Scotland
The latest edition of the 5pm Gin Map of Scotland.

Celebrate Scottish gin with the latest 5pm Gin Map of Scotland.

Gin has been a Scottish success story over the last few years with more than 70% of the gin consumed in the UK now being made in Scotland.

Launched today, ahead of World Gin Day on Saturday, the latest 5pm Gin Map of Scotland shows the boom in graphic form. The updated map has 53 gins, a whopping 25 more than last year’s version. You can download it here.

The colourful infographic (or ginfographic) includes the name of the gins, their location, all their botanicals and the garnish recommended by the distiller.

New Gin Map of Scotland

Notable new gins on the map include LoneWolf Gin, produced by craft beer giants BrewDog; two gins from Orkney, Kirkjuvagr and Johnsmas; Misty Isle Gin from Skye plus Ginerosity, a social enterprise gin from Edinburgh, along with many more.

The gins reflect the creativity and resourcefulness of the Scottish craft gin market, many of which have beautifully designed bottles, locally foraged botanicals, and exotic garnishes, including kiwi fruit (Shetland Reel) and torn bay leaf (Bardowie Gin).
