NVA has teamed up with the Glasgow Distillery Company and Stand to produce a limited edition gin that will raise funds to support the restoration of the woodland and Victorian walled garden at St Peter’s.
We worked with the Glasgow Distillery Company's Co-Founder Mike Hayward to develop an elegant handcrafted gin inspired by the historic landscape of Kilmahew. Infused with orange peel, bramble leaf and rosehip, this artfully crafted gin balances citrus and juniper for a zesty, full-flavoured spirit.
Bramble bushes and rambling roses can still be found in Kilmahew woodland today. Orange trees, on the other hand, are not typically suited to the west of Scotland climate. This addition is a nod to John Fleming, the first gardener to oversee the estate’s Walled Garden when it was established in 1866. Pushing the boundaries of the time, he brought experimental techniques to Kilmahew using the new glasshouses to grow exotics and produce oranges, nectarines and other soft fruits.
The stunning bottle and beautiful graphics were designed by Stand, a Glasgow brand and packaging agency, who were inspired by the relationship between the architecture of St Peter’s and the shapes and textures of the surrounding environment.
All of the profits raised through sales of Kilmahew Gin will be donated to the restoration project and help us to bring St Peter’s back to life as a distinctive visitor attraction and new cultural resource for Scotland. With this support we plan to gradually repopulate the landscape with native and exotic plants, restore the path networks, and bring the abandoned Victorian walled garden back into productive use. The next five years will see Kilmahew woods become a hub for community food growing, creative learning, volunteering programmes and large scale art events.
