FATHER'S DAY WITH ARBIKIE
This weekend we toast to the amazing fathers and men in our lives. To those we celebrate with today and to those who we have sadly lost along the way, Happy Father’s Day from all of us at Arbikie Distillery.
AK's Gin is a homage to the great man behind everything Arbikie has become. Sadly Alexander K Stirling passed away last year suffering from Motor Neurone Disease (MND). His memory will forever remain in the growth of Arbikie with AK having passed on his farming legacy to brothers; John, Iain and David, Owners and Directors of Arbikie Distillery. We’re thankful to have released AK’s Gin which is named after Mr Stirling and have it awarded ‘World’s Best Martini 2018’ before his passing- this Father's Day we will be raising a glass for AK.
June is also an important month for us as it’s MND Awareness Month. We’re honoured to support this cause through our partnership with MND Scotland & The Euan MacDonald Centre with an ongoing donation of £1 from every bottle sale of AK’s Gin going towards MND funding and research.
