Gin is having a massive moment. What used to be considered a daggy tipple has become the number one spirit on everyone’s hit list. It’s so popular London recently held a gin festival, and now not to be outdone, Scotland has opened it’s own gin experience… A SPA! Its' easily one of the best things to do in Glasgow.
Scotland’s Gin Spa is nestled in the city of Glasgow and if you’re wondering how a spa can bring gin into beauty treatments then you are in for a real treat. Gin71, a chain of Scotland bars who live and breathe gin, runs the Gin Spa. At this luxe spa, you’re treated to the standard beauty treatments such as facials, massages and nails BUT botanical elements of gin are infused in the essential oils and products the therapists use to pamper you to the max.
When you arrive you’ll be asked what vibe you’re after (e.g. tranquil, energetic etc.) and a special treatment will be tailored to you. You’ll then select your oils and choose an inspiration card. Of course you will also get to drink gin too! There’s a delightful afternoon tea, aromatherapy chocolate and gin cocktails available. The cocktails are almost too pretty to drink and feature bespoke gins infused with violet, hibiscus or bramble… the list is endless!
Sessions at the treatment room are limited (and super popular because yummy yummy gin) so it’s highly recommended to book well in advance. It’s a great chance to combine your love of travel, drinking gin and being treated like the queen you are. Enjoy gin fiends!
