We decided to name our batches with a Kintyre theme, rather than simply number them, and began with place names significant to Kintyre. We follow the Gaelic alphabet which is slightly more forgiving as it misses out some of the tricky letters! Argyll was our very first batch and that series was accompanied by engaging images from around Kintyre. The moniker Argyll had an extra special significance to our local community as Argyll MacMillan is a local Carradale legend who was more than happy to be our first poster boy! A compilation of all these images can be seen on YouTube.
We used Kintyre slang words and local dialect for the second series of batches and recruited local volunteers to be filmed saying particular words. See our YouTube channel for the short clips.
It is a great way to showcase everything that is wonderful about Kintyre. We are privileged to live and work in this amazing part of Scotland and are proud to name our gin after it.
