The company
Scapegrace has been winning awards ever since it first burst onto the scene in 2014, with Scapegrace Gold winning best London dry gin in the world at the London International Wine and Spirits Awards in 2018. Subsequently, Scapegrace hit the news after they launched the world’s first naturally black gin and it sold out in a day. All this points to an obsession with gin that’s showing no sign of slowing down. Scapegrace currently produces gin, vodka and is soon to release a single malt whisky. Selling their brands in over 30 countries and ranged in some of the best bars in the world.
