Demijohn - Glasgow's Only Liquid Delicatessen
The staff are keen to tell you just where each of its unusual liquid treats is sourced – whether that be the red bramble vinegar from Perthshire or the local Lothian raspberries in its raspberry gin. They even get involved in foraging for the wild sloes that make Demijohn’s perfectly plummy sloe gin so moreish. Fashionable Rapeseed oil is also represented. Scottish and flavoured with a zesty lemon, it has similar nutritional benefits to olive oil, but a higher burning point which makes it perfect for flash frying or roasting. In fact, ask any of the friendly staff in this West end store and it becomes apparent that they’re keen foodies too and they’re happy to share their own favourite recipes – how to make house cocktail Whisky Mac (1 shot of the Demijohn blend to 2 parts of the shop’s winter warming, top-selling ginger wine) or using their gooseberry gin to glaze a roasting pan for a rich kick to any Sunday roast. Shoppers are encouraged to try before they buy, and purchases are decanted from source into a range of environmental friendly reusable, refillable glass bottles that range in shape and size – with hearts and interconnecting curvy wavy or stacking bottles, all starting from 100ml.
