Kirsty’s Gin is filled with the character of our Angus home.
Named after our
Master Distiller Kirsty
botanicals of seaweed, Carline Thistle and
laeberries capture the elements of sea,
surround us and profoundly
influence our distillery.
Using traditional distilling methods and our copper still, we blend three perfect potato varieties to create a spirit that is deliciously smooth. Kirtsy’s Gin is also gluten free.
As a genu ine field to bottle distillery, we grow as much ingredients as possible on our farm, including our flourishing Juniper trees, a fundamental ingredient in all of our gins
THE BOTANICAL ELEMENTS:
ELEMENT 1: THE OCEAN
Kelp ( Laminaria digitata ): w ith our i nfinite view overlooking Lunan Bay, the sea is a presence that envelopes our distillery. So, it had to be an important botanical in our gin. Kelp is everywhere on this wild coastland.
ELEMENT 2: THE ROCK
Carline Thistle ( Carlina Vulgaris ): a shoreline plan t with a distinctive daisy - like flower, it grows close by in the more rocky areas that surround the spectacular bay we overlook.
ELEMENT 3: THE LAND
Blaeberries ( Vaccinium Myrtillus ): this is the Scottish blueberry and is abundant within a stones - throw of our distillery. The berry particularly loves woodland areas and grows happily over old tree stumps.
Unlike many rival brands (who ship in their spirit from wherever in the world) our base spirit is distilled by us on the estate, allowing us to specifica lly tailor it to complement the gin’s botanical flavours.
