FIELD TO BOTTLE

REAL CRAFT. REAL INGREDIENTS. REAL PEOPLE.

ARBIKIE HIGHLAND ESTATE

Arbikie Estate is a family-owned working farm perched on the east coast of Angus. Here, the crop is king. We painstakingly plant, sow, tend and harvest the fields that make up Arbikie. We are craftsmen of the soil.

This is an estate profoundly shaped by its environment: the red sandstone-tinted soil, the powerful sea and the turbulent weather give Arbikie a character found nowhere else. And here, where land meets sea, sits our distillery. Created from an ancient barn, it is a place with all the ingredients required to produce authentic spirits of the highest quality, from field to bottle.

A TRADITIONAL ETHOS

Records show a distillery situated on our land dating back as far as 1794. During these ancient times, distilling was field to bottle, and it is this approach that inspired our own ethos (making spirits this way is rare, as big companies produce spirits as a global commodity). For us, authenticity and provenance are at the heart of everything we do. And let’s not forget creativity – as a family business we have the flexibility to be innovative and original.

ARBIKIE MASTER DISTILLER

KIRSTY BLACK

"Getting the best possible product starts in the field. If you get things right from the beginning it will continue through the harvested product and on into the bottle."

OUR DISTILLERY

The distillery is a stones throw from our fields. When our crops arrive, the magic begins. Renovated from the remains of an old cattle barn overlooking Lunan Bay, we are the first single-estate distillery to distil all our spirits in the same copper pot stills, with the vodka and gin spirit continuing their journey to our 40 plate distillation column. This distillation process means all our spirits reflect the traditional Scotch whisky method.

The distilling team is led by our Master Distiller, Kirsty Black (listed in the top ten female master distillers in the world by Spirits Business Magazine) and Christian Perez. Together with the Stirling brothers, they ensure that the history, tradition and provenance of Scottish distilling are built into the DNA of every spirit they create.

SLOW FOOD SCOTLAND, CHIEF EXECUTIVE

JOSIAH LOCKHART

"One of the most revolutionary, yet surprising traditional drinks companies in Scotland. I've never come across another distiller that comes close to their ambition when it comes to provenance and terroir."

PROVENANCE & TRACEABILITY

The Arbikie Highland Estate has always been farmed with absolute respect for the land. The addition of a distillery has not changed our commitment to minimising any environmental impact. Provenance and traceability at Arbikie doesn’t stop with just our crops and water. We use juniper in our spirits - so we grow our own juniper. We use honey - produced by the bees on our farm. We use solar power, and our distilling from start to finish uses negligible miles for its production. The primary waste product from distilling is recycled wherever possible as feed for cattle.
