Gin is the Word in Glasgow’s City Centre

Glasgow is set to get not one, but two gin bars in May. As reported in February’s DRAM, Alston Bar and Beef, owned by Glendola Leisure, is set to open, beneath Glasgow Central Station. It plans to stock the city’s widest range of gin while serving up the finest cuts of Scottish beef. Alston’s General Manager Matthew Mustard said, “The bar will be one of Glasgow’s best places for gin; not only will we have the largest collection of gins, but we will also be known for the perfect presentation – from the right glass, ice style and garnish to bring out the gin’s individual flavours.”
While sharing the same premises as Cup Tea Lounge on Renfield Street, the second gin bar to open is Gin71. It will open in the evening where Cup leaves off, selling artisan gins, home-brewed tonics and cocktails. Business Support Manager, Ben Howell, told us, “The team at Cup have established a strong brand with their knowledge and understanding of hand blended teas and are looking forward to developing an equally loyal following of gin lovers.”
