As we raise our glasses to toast another year, we’re thrilled to share with you that Shipyard Gin is turning two! It’s been an incredible journey with a lot of riding waves, and we’re grateful to have you by our side every step of the way.


Starting Shipyard Gin amidst a pandemic was no easy feat. But with passion, dedication, and a touch of Scottish resilience, we’ve navigated through the stormy seas and have come out stronger. Born on the banks of the River Clyde, our gin is a tribute to Scottish Shipbuilding, once world-renowned for its unparalleled craftsmanship. Just as ships built on the Clyde made up one-fifth of all ships at sea in the early 1900s, we aim to make Shipyard Gin a name recognised and loved worldwide.

Awards & Recognition πŸ†

Our commitment to quality and craftsmanship has been recognised with numerous awards. From winning gold at the London Spirits Competition 2022, scoring 93/100, higher than some of the UK’s most loved gins to being a finalist in the Scottish Gin Awards in two categories. Our “Original” gin, a delightful blend of juniper, gorse, elderflower, and hints of coconut and vanilla, has won accolades and hearts alike. Every sip is a testament to our dedication to creating a gin that stands out in a sea of choices.


Festival Fun πŸŽͺ

One of the highlights of our journey has been participating in numerous festivals all over the UK. Sharing our story, connecting with gin enthusiasts, and seeing the joy our gin brings to so many has been truly rewarding. As we continue to grow, we will be reducing the amount of smaller farmer market festivals and participating more in nationally recognised festivals like The Gin To My Tonic events.

A Little About Us…

For those new to our story, Shipyard Gin is more than just a drink. It’s a celebration of heritage, passion, and craftsmanship. As you walk along the River Clyde, you’ll find several of our key botanicals, handpicked to bring a touch of Scotland to every bottle. Distilled in Scotland and made in Inverclyde, our gin is a tribute to the shipyards that once stood tall on our shores.

Looking Ahead…


As we embark on another year, we promise to continue our tradition of excellence, innovation, and passion. We have exciting plans in store and can’t wait to share them with you.

Thank you for being a part of our journey. Here’s to many more years of shared memories, laughter, and, of course, great gin!

A Word From Our Founder…

I’m deeply grateful for your support. Launching a start-up drinks brand has been a journey filled with challenges, doubts, and moments where I questioned its impact on my family. Yet, there have been numerous days of excitement and joy. Your unwavering support for small businesses, especially during these uncertain times with rising energy costs and living expenses, means the world to us. Believe me when I say that every purchase brings a burst of happiness to me, my family and the Shipyard Gin team. Thank you for being an integral part of our journey. Warmest Regards Andy Samuel Founder & Managing Director
