This characterful gin is named after Alexander Kirkwood Stirling (aka AK). He’s the father of the Stirling brothers and their inspiration for starting Arbikie Distillery.

AK’s Gin is distilled using wheat farmed at Arbikie and is flavoured with locally and sustainably sourced fresh Angus honey, black pepper and cardamom.

For every AK's Gin sold, £1 is donated to support people with MND through the work of The Euan MacDonald Centre for MND Research and MND Scotland.

ak's and ginger

Honey, black pepper and cardamom are featured as the botanicals in AK's gin. These partner wonderfully with ginger ale which adds peppery notes while creating a very refreshing highball, our twist on the classic Gin & Tonic.

50ml AK's Gin, 10ml fresh lime juice, top up with ginger ale.

Garnish: Rosemary Sprig and Lime wheel

Glass: Highball
