The creators of Stirling Gin have teamed up with Scotland’s top Curlers as they launch their bid for Olympic Gold.

June and Cameron McCann are sponsoring Stirling-based Team Murdoch as they compete for selection to represent Great Britain at the next Winter Olympics in South Korea.

The team – skip David Murdoch, Michael Goodfellow, Greg Drummond, and Scott Andrews – were members of the successful GB squad which won Silver at the Sochi Games two years ago.

They hope to return and win Gold in 2018 and have been backed by Stirling Gin as main sponsors on that journey 

June McCann said: “Gin and ice has always been a good combination so when Team Murdoch got in touch to see if we wanted to get involved we thought why not?

“We’re both local enterprises with our roots firmly in Stirling and like Team Murdoch, the team behind Stirling Gin are aiming for the top.

“The curlers travel and compete all over the world so it’s a great way for us to get the word about Stirling Gin out there while at the same time helping them achieve their goals.”

Yesterday (Sunday), Team Murdoch flew to Canada for the start of a gruelling competition schedule leading up to the Scottish and World Curling Championships next year.

Team Murdoch’s Michael Goodfellow said: “We’re delighted to have the support of Stirling Gin behind us and it’s great to be involved with such an innovative company.

“Cameron and June are a lovely couple and they’re so supportive always texting to see how our competitions are going and showing a real interest in the sport.

“I’m Stirling born and bred and love everything to do with the city and anything which promotes it.

“Stirling Gin does that perfectly – it’s got the Wallace Monument and Stirling Bridge on the logo and the fact that a local couple made it in their kitchen is just fantastic.”
