Founder Peter Menzies, having run his own venue at The Vine and mobile bars in and around Dundee, 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. Not just any marmalade, but Dundee’s very own recipe.
After some help from the experts, the signature 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 company have added new products to the range, and are constantly innovating. Bringing customers the very best in locally sourced and produced goods.
Contact has already come in from Australia, Germany 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.
