Our gins are developed on ‘Wee Alice’, a fifty litre Hoga copper pot still which is ideal for creating unique spirits. Once we are happy with the recipes, we move up to our 100 litre stills for production. These are as yet unnamed, so watch this space as there may be a competition to christen a highland still in the near future.
The distillation process sees us macerating our botanicals for several hours. Our direct-fired stills are hand made for us in Portugal, paying homage to the origins of distillation by the Moors in the12th century. Once the stills are full, a long, slow distillation allows us to decide the cut points by taste rather than yield, to ensure that we create a highland dry Scottish gin of the highest standard.
