Setting up your own business with just a credit card in your back pocket is not easy. Having worked in gin and spirits we’ve learned the importance of not only having a great liquid but also making sure the bottle on the shelf looks as good as the liquid might taste.

Inspired by some of the great gin bottle designs we wanted to give Lowlander a similar feel to make it look as it does now. So we are extremely thankful to our Irish friend Una Martin at Drinksology for helping us. Una, thank you for your beautiful and amazing design work, the Supreme Design & Packaging Trophy at the International Beer Awards we owe entirely to you.

With the end of the year fast approaching, it’s time to start the countdown to a new year, in the shape of our own Lowlander advent calendar. It has been almost two years since we started our adventure, So from the 6th of December we will start counting down with the alphabet – inspired by the letters on our Winter Ale beer – and share the journey we’re on, our highs and lows and the people we’ve met. A letter for every day, make sure you don’t miss it and follow our journey from 2017 into 2018.
