Xin Gin was designed to be at the heart of gatherings. Xin’s founders Michelle and Gareth McAllister have Irish blood and Asian hearts. After spending many years in Asia, they wanted to merge what they loved about their two homes. The word itself means ‘heart’ or ‘feelings’ in Mandarin.
The design of the bottle, with ancient celtic swirls contrasted with a modern eastern aesthetic reflects the liquid inside – a perfect balance of European and Oriental botanicals. The cross shaped label represents a promise to stay connected and a crossing point of the two cultures they love.
Xin Gin has won ‘Best in Ireland’ at The Gin Guide Awards; Gold at the International Wine & Spirits Competition; Bronze at the World Gin Awards 2022 for Best Contemporary Irish Gin and Silver for Best Design.
