The History of Kinrara Gin Distillery
Our Cairngorms Gin Distillery is located just outside the picturesque town of Aviemore, one of Scotland’s most well-known highland towns. The natural beauty that surrounds our distillery has been the core inspiration for our award-winning craft gins.
We are lucky enough to be immersed in rich Scottish history and we use the stories and natural landscapes of the area as our basis to create small-batch Scottish gins that blend traditional spirit-production methods with the innovation and artistry of modern tastes. We are constantly looking to break boundaries by creating bold new flavours that reflect our Scottish heritage and represent the men and women that roamed the highlands before us. We take great care in all aspects of our production, from our thoughtful ingredient selection right down to our artistically designed bottles.
Even our building is steeped in history. Formerly a milking shed situated on the Kinrara Estate, the quaint charm and rich history of the building has allowed us to create one of the most authentic gin distilleries throughout all of Scotland.
Come and visit us to experience the stunning Scottish landscapes and historic charm for yourself. Whether you’re just popping your head in or coming along for one of our amazing tasting sessions, you’ll be guaranteed a warm welcome at one of Scotland’s top gin distilleries.
