Twenty years on from opening Hope, their hair salon in Dunfermline’s Maygate, owners Brian and Debbie Jobson have created their very own gin, called ’20 by Maygate Gin’. This weekend the couple are hosting a speak-easy pop up gin event in their second salon, the stylish Old Town Barber Club.
Brian said:’The original batch of 120 bottles sold out in only four hours so we have obtained an occasional license for this Saturday and Sunday (May 19 & 20) to allow people to taste our fantastic new product. It’s a speak-easy pop up gin event at Old Town Barber Club at 20 Maygate, where people can drop by between 5pm and 10pm to buy a gin and tonic or a special ‘20 Cocktail’ made from grapefruitcello and prosecco. If you are one of the lucky few to have pre-ordered a bottle of 20 by Maygate Gin you can pick up and pay for your bottle during the event’.
‘Brian and I are so thankful to our friend Thomas Moffat (Visit Dunfermline) for introducing us to his partners at Loch Leven Brewery & Loch Leven Distillery. Our collaboration with these guys on ‘20 by Maygate Gin’ has been an absolute pleasure from start to finish and we look forward to working with them on many other exciting projects in the near future,’ said Debbie Jobson.
