Inshriach Gin’s London Launch

A shed can be many things, from a small store for the lawnmower to a comfortable place of retreat, but few sheds contain gin distilleries. And even fewer distilleries are housed in an award-winning Shed of the Year. But that is from where Inshriach Gin hails; 2015’s Shed of the Year on the Inshriach Estate, deep in the Cairngorms National Park. Where better, then, to hold the London launch of the newest edition to the range, Inshriach Navy Strength 57%, than East London’s stunning Shed Village; itself a contender for Shed of the Year in 2016?

Back in 2015, Walter Micklethwait’s shed was home to Crossbill Gin but they parted ways in late 2016. In 2017, Walter launched his own Inshriach Original 43% featuring Scottish juniper and other botanicals, all picked within a few miles of the estate. A Navy Strength Gin has just joined the range and I was lucky enough to attend the small and select launch in Bow on Saturday 24th June; a magical evening in an enchanted shed world with live music and free-flowing gin and tonics. Here’s a little taste of the evening.

With thanks to Walter Micklethwait for inviting me to the launch night.

  1. Wow… this place looks absolutely and utterly shed-tastically incredible! I need me a proper man-cave. With a still!
