Wattshot launches across Scotland


WATTSHOT gin designed to be drunk as a shot launches

Launching in conjunction with Merchant Leisure Group, WATTSHOT’s gin shot is stocked across five of Edinburgh’s top venues: The Piper’s Rest, Jackson The Tailor, The Newsroom, The Railbridge and Burgers & Beers Grillhouse – also listed across the country and available from Inverarity Morton.


WATTSHOT’s gin shot is a unique mix of eight rooted botanicals for a herbal flavour combined with cherry juice.

Doug Everest hails from Boat of Garten in The Highlands but has taken WATTSHOT around the world; from the glamour of Nikki Beach, Ibiza to the affluent bars of Delhi, India, to UK festivals like Clockwork Orange, collecting a raft of awards from the World Gin Awards, the People’s Choice Spirits Award, The Spirits Business and more.


The instructions are simple: drink chilled, take a shot, hold it in your mouth for 1 – 2 seconds, then swallow and enjoy the effect.

Of course, for those who prefer to drink their gin in a more traditional fashion, the standalone flavours of WATTSHOT’s premium gin shot also make it a versatile drink, enjoyed over ice, added to tonic, or mixed into a variety of delicious cocktails.
