The Shropshire Gin Company is the home of Tiger Gin. The Shropshire Gin Company was set-up by me, JJ Lawrence, a “Shropshire Lad” born and bred.
My Passion is Gin! Gin is my drink of choice and whilst drinking it one night I had a thought. Wouldn’t it be amazing to follow my passion and produce my own gin, a new class of luxury British Spirit! It was here that the Shropshire Gin Company was born.
I began to read and research, read more and research more, made the calls and got out there, it became all consuming… an obsession.
I realised that even if I trained to become a qualified distiller it would take years and years to hone the craft. So I sourced the best distiller I could find who happened to be just 30 minutes away.
A family owned company which has been developing and producing some of the finest award winning gins in the world for nearly 100 years. I was on a mission to create the best tasting gin in the world! The master distiller and I worked tirelessly on developing the formula to create an incredible taste.
It has been an exciting yet challenging journey to bring TIGER GIN to you. No other name would do, it was TIGER GIN or nothing. However I never expected a court battle against a Multi- Billion pound Global empire!
Everyone hates a bully right? It became a matter of principle, it was long and drawn out but the fight in the tiger in me, Drove me on to win! A real David and Goliath story.
I’m delighted that Tiger Gin finished in second place in the 2017’s #HotCraftSpirits contest. This is a real win for the Shropshire Gin Company.
