For the holiday season and those special moments, why not celebrate with a glass of local fizz? Our Sparkling Strawberry is a towering inferno of swirling, ting-tangling strawberry fizz that rolls away like a fluffy cloud caught in a light, summer’s day breeze. This wine brings together big, juicy Perthshire strawberries and light, fragrant elderflower blossoms. A marriage made in heaven; bottled sunshine.
A plant hunting expedition to Burma in 1919 saw Euan Cox bring back the first seeds which became the foundation of the gardens at Glendoick.
Plant Hunter Gin is a celebration of 100 years of botanical exploration and three generations of Cox plant hunters.
In the 19th Century, the Cox family were involved in the jute industry so it is entirely fitting that this gin is distilled in an old jute mill in Dundee, bringing together a proud heritage steeped in tradition and a distinct floral bouquet.
Glendoick is a multi award winning garden centre situated 8 miles from Perth on the A90.

Persie Distillery’s Sloe & Plum Gin is tart and tangy with a rich depth of flavour, intensified by the addition of local Perthshire plums, hand-picked by the distillery team. There are distinct notes of pepper and sweet cinnamon from the base spirit, with a touch of nutty marzipan on the finish.
Traditionally sloe gin is drunk neat - or in wintertime with ginger ale or mulled cider. It’s also delicious when topped up with Prosecco for a cheery Christmas aperitif - dubbed a sloegasm!
Persie is an award-winning distillery located at the foot of Glenshee. Independent and family-owned, the husband-and-wife team have been producing hand-crafted spirits since 2016, with a percentage of sales donated to PADS dog rescue.
