Banks gets into the spirit

Dean Banks has launched a gin

THE Angus upbringing and travels of chef Dean Banks are said to have provided the inspiration for the former Masterchef: The Professionals winner’s new premium gin.

Taking its name from a beach near Banks’ hometown of Arbroath, where the gin is distilled, Lunun features a blend of six botanicals, including kaffir lime leaf, sea buckthorn and lemongrass, and is said to have been developed with the chef’s palate in mind.

Banks said the “no-nonsense” 41% ABV gin is a drink “that will be appreciated by those who are just looking for a high-quality gin to enjoy”.
