Blending black: How Scapegrace distilled the world's first naturally black gin

You may remember Scapegrace gin as the New Zealand company formerly called Rogue Society that has an international scuffle with an American brewing company that had a beer called 'Rogue'. The company rebranded to Scapegrace, an 18th-century synonym for ‘rogue’. Now, after months of tinkering, it has created the world's first naturally black gin. In the wake of Scapegrace Black hitting shelves, we talk to the distillery’s co-founder Mark Neal about how the new gin reaffirms what the brand stands for while pushing innovation in the spirits industry.

Same drop, different name

A new campaign by Rogue Society Gin declares they have ‘made a name for themselves’ and the New Zealand company doesn’t just mean figuratively. After an international scuffle with an American brewing company that had a beer called 'Rogue', the company has rebranded to be Scapegrace Dry Gin to better promote its product overseas.
