We have been making award winning gin since 2018 at the Distillutions Distillery in Arbroath, under the watchful eye of Lewis Scothern. When we started the brand, we didn’t have the funds to build our own distillery, so we looked for someone who would let us share theirs. We spoke with several distilleries with the view of producing our own gin, and then we met Lewis! We clicked with him right away, his values aligned with ours, and most importantly, he was happy to let us be hands on with the process and agreed to teach us.
We use a 200 litre still for our distillations and use smaller 10 and 50 litre stills for product development. The small still size ensures we truly are small batch with less than 300 bottles being produced per batch. The still is a stainless steel hybrid, using a pot with a column that has one copper bubble cap plate for greater copper to spirit contact. The copper removes impurities as the spirit vapour passes through the column. This ensures that we achieve a smooth gin when it comes off the still. The still is directly heated using electric elements with the electricity coming from 100% renewable sources. We produce, bottle, label and package our gins on site at the distillery.
We produce outstanding products that we are proud to shout about. We are passionate and care about the quality of spirits that we produce. We use the best ingredients possible, using the best methods possible and only produce spirits that we enjoy drinking ourselves. We strive to ensure that only the very best quality spirits leave the distillery.
