A different kind of tonic: UK’s first gin spa opens in Scotland
POSTED 09 Jan 2018 . BY Jane Kitchen
Following the success of their gin bars, the team behind Gin71 have opened The Gin Spa in Glasgow.

The spa will use the team’s knowledge of natural Scottish botanicals and their properties, gained from the growth of the craft gin movement in Scotland, to reach a new market.

Paul Reynolds, managing director of Gin71 and The Gin Spa, describes his vision for the spa as “the perfect storm of great service, exceptional treatments, product and, of course, gin”.

A variety of massages, facials, manicures and pedicures are inspired by the botanical properties of gin.

Guests begin their treatment by choosing a botanical aromatherapy oil for their treatment, followed by a series of inspiration cards with messages such as “be adventurous” or “your mind affects your body”.

While traditional tea is served before a treatment, afterwards, guests can unwind in the relaxation room with drinks from a complimentary gin and tonic trolley.

The Gin Spa will also be pairing with both Gin71 and its sister business Cup Tea Rooms to offer packages featuring afternoon teas and gin experiences.

The spa is using Scottish botanicals range JustBe, founded by aromatherapist Gail Bryden.

“Every product is lovingly handmade in Scotland using purely natural ingredients with the sole purpose of making you feel consciously alive,” said Bryden.
