Why the UK’s First Ever Gin Spa Is Top of Our Post-Lockdown List

Posted on 19th Mar 2021. In , , , , ,


Cut me a lemon and throw me an ice cube, because the UK’s first-ever gin spa will – hopefully – be throwing its doors open again post-lockdown to gin lovers everywhere on May 17th.

Get yourself to Glasgow when it’s safe to do so and you’ll find The Gin Spa in a quiet corner of Merchant City just waiting to help you relax with gin-based aromatherapy, massage and cheeky G&Ts.

The Gin Spa comes from the team behind the Gin71 bars in Scotland and has all the vibes of a professional gin-soaked experience: moody dark walls, geometric decor, empty gin bottles twinkling with fairy lights.

The only real difference to your usual gin fun is that at the Gin Spa you’ll walk out, not crawl, feeling better than you did when you walked in.

Yes, the spa is heavily gin-themed but still there is a serious wellness mission behind it all: they use the botanicals you would find in gin for the benefits they have on your skin, your body and your wellbeing.

For the full Gin Spa experience, treat yourself to one of their luxury spa day packages – all of which include a complimentary gin and tonic from the Fever Tree drinks trolley!

Will it be the ‘RE-GIN-VENATE ‘package with their signature facial and a full body massage or the ‘Gin to Your Tonic’ spa day for two? Best pour a gin to help you decide.

Prices start from £55 for a treatment. And bookings can be made through The Gin Spa site.
