Founder Peter Menzies, having run his own venue at The Vine and mobile bars in and around Dundee, having stocked 140 different gins. After sampling a particularly good rhubarb and ginger gin, he realised how popular they were. Thereafter Peter got a team together and, having been heavily involved with Dundee Cake, it was obvious that his ingredient had to be marmalade and not just any but Dundee’s very own marmalade recipe.
After a lot of help from the experts, the end product was born and the rest is definitely not history.
A soft online media launch of the home page exploded with more that 155,000 views causing retailers to sell more than 200 bottles in the first 2.5 hours locally.
The big question is what lies ahead for The Dundee Gin Co.?
Now stocked both locally and Nationally, the next batch will be ready for sale at the end of January when it will be available through more retail outlets and bars.
Contact has already come in from Australia and the USA for orders of Marmalade Gin Liqueur and Peter sends out a heart felt thank you to the people of Dundee for their support, as this is Dundee’s story and without it, The Dundee Gin Co. would not have been possible.
