Crabbie’s has unveiled two new special edition Scottish Rugby gins ahead of the Guinness Six Nations and named them after two former Scotland internationalists.

The gins are branded ‘Jack Crabbie’ and ‘George Crabbie’ after founder John Crabbie’s grandsons who both played for Scotland in the early 1900s.

The special edition gins are based on Crabbie’s 1837 Gin discovered in John Crabbie’s authentic recipe book dating back over 180 years.

The 1837 recipe with raspberry and ginger, the ‘Jack Crabbie’ Gin is a vibrant, fruity pink gin with a delicate pink hue while it’s teammate ‘George Crabbie’ is a citrus forward London dry gin which uses orange and lemon peel for a fresh zesty flavour balanced by delicate herbal notes of bay and rosemary.

The Leith-based distiller signed a three-year renewal sponsorship with Scottish Rugby and Edinburgh Rugby last summer and sees the partnership as a way to highlight its local investment and historic links to rugby and the city.

David Brown, managing director of Crabbie’s said: “It’s a pleasure and delight to be involved with Scottish Rugby in this exciting new venture.
