1 review

Same as our original Gin Pigs but with really cute Heart Tattoos

A little Red Heart or a pure Gold Heart

Following on from the 'Gin Craze' of the early eighteenth century when half of the London drinking establishments were gin bars, and later when the aristocracy of the Victorian era had 'Gin Palaces' there was a desire for specially made jugs and decanters to display how wealthy the household was. Many of these were made from hand blown glass and were known as Gin Pigs. Our Gin Pigs are also inspired by the two gin pigs on display at National Trust property, Brodie Castle, seeing these two large jugs caught our imagination and our design of the Gin Pig was born.

Gin Pigs did not always come in the form of a pig, some establishments favoured dogs or fish. With the recent renaissance of gin, with an emphasis on Scottish gin, the history of these vessels has been uncovered and the desire to recreate these is now in the hands of our expert glassblowers at Angels' Share Glass ®️.

Our Love Gin Pig is filled with 50ml/5cl of Scottish Artisan Gin or Artisan Pink Gin at 40% ABV. 65 - 70mm diameter. It is a miniature sized measure of gin.
