    McQueen True Flavour Black Cherry Gin

    Posted by Carlee Wilson

    McQueen True Flavour Black Cherry Gin featured throughout February

    Just in time for St Valentine’s Day and the month of love, Brian and the team at le Chardon d’Or are delighted to feature the stunning McQueen True Flavour Black Cherry Gin from Callander-based Trossachs Distillery.  

    Rich black cherry flavours reflect the bittersweet taint that love can bring and the finish, sweet and vanilla-laced brings a delightful balance to the palate, like a love story blossoming at the end of each sip. Or, you might think it tastes more like your grandmother’s Black Forest Gateaux in a glass – the choice is yours.

    Is McQueen True Flavour Black Cherry Gin the tipple you’ve been looking for all your life? February is the perfect month to find out…

    The McQueen Story

    Nestled in the heart of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, McQueen Gin distils award-winning spirits that are daring with flavour.

    Launched in 2015 by Dale and Vicky McQueen, the husband and wife duo have developed a reputation for creating some of the most innovative flavour combinations in Scotland. The adventure began with a passion for fresh ingredients and the brand is built on the couple’s mission to bring experimental flavour combinations to gin-lovers worldwide.

    The unique range of Scottish gins, now including five world-first flavours and even a colour changing gin, is always distilled with pride and precision while staying true to the unmistakable character recognised in all McQueen Gins.
