This characterful gin is named after Alexander Kirkwood Stirling (aka AK).
The father of founders Iain, John and David. This gin is a tribute to AK.
Alex was the owner and inspiration behind the Arbikie Estate and farm for many decades. Passing on his knowledge, enthusiasm and deep respect for the land to the next generation.
The Stirling family see themselves as custodians of the land, and this view is embodied
in the field to bottle methods built into the very DNA o
estate and distillery.
AK’S Gin is distilled using wheat farmed on the Arbikie Estate. It is flavored with fresh honey from our own hives , black pepper and cardamom chosen by our Master Distiller, Kirsty Black. The wheat field is just a sto nes - throw from our distillery.
It is also the creation of our own spirit that sets us apart as a field to bottle operation . W e grow, distil and bottle on our farm , giving A K ’ S a taste of the place from where it was created.
