AWARD-WINNING CRAFT GIN

Sustainably distilled exactly where the label says

The first bottle of Kintyre Gin rolled off the production line in June 2017 and has since become a firm favourite on craft gin shelves around the country.  Our gin still is powered by our own hydro-electricity and we try to keep our other emissions as low as possibe – sustainability lies at the heart of our business.

A sophisticated blend of 12 botanicals,  Kintyre Gin is a decliciously smooth spirit that works beautifully as a sipping gin over ice or paired with a premium tonic.

Kintyre Gin has twice been voted Scotland’s second favourite gin in a consumer survey by the Scottish Gin Society – no mean feat for a small batch spirit competing in a busy market place!

THE PERFECT SERVE

The best way to enjoy Kintyre Gin

delimiter image

Kintyre Gin is a classic London Dry style of gin which lends itself well to a premium tonic.  We like Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic which brings out the natural sweetness of Kintyre Gin, garnished with a sprig of basil.

For those with less of a sweet palette, try a lighter tonic such as Merchant Heart or Fever Tree Light and add a slice of pink grapefruit.

Kintyre Gin is also really delicious sipped over ice!

OUR BOTANICALS

We use 12 botanicals in our core expression, Kintyre Gin, which have all been sustainably sourced.

To achieve the characteristics of a very flavoursome and well-balanced spirit, the gin consists of 10 commonly used botanicals, with the addition of 2 which are unique, namely Icelandic moss and sheep sorrel – both grow on the estate in abundance.

Either through maceration or vapour infusion, these produce a gin which our expert tasting panel described as having earthy and spicy characteristics, being deep in flavour, with a very pleasant floral aroma. A true taste of Kintyre!

OUR GIN STILL

A small still with a big personality!

Our small copper pot still, was imported from Germany and has a fill capacity of only 230 litres of spirit, resulting in a truly hand crafted gin. The still is run on a three-phase electricity supply direct from our own hydro-electric  scheme. During periods of drought we have the ability to import electricity direct from the grid to maintain a steady flow of gin.

This fine looking still is named Big Don, a nod to Niall and Kenny’s father, Donald Macalister Hall,  who sadly passed away during the initial stages of the distillery’s development. A keen gin drinker, and luckily for us, someone with a great sense of humour, Donald’s spirit lives on!
