What Makes Us Special?
RENEWABLE HYDRO ENERGY
We embrace wet weather here at Beinn an Tuirc! Our 99kw hydro- electric scheme powers our copper still, giving Kintyre Gin unique eco credentials. The turbine house is located just a few yards away from the distillery and the source of the burn can be found high up on Beinn an Tuirc itself.
LOCAL SPRING WATER
Scotland’s unique fresh spring water has a long association with malt whisky production and is also a vital ingredient in gin distillation. We have our own ready supply from a Victorian spring located just above the distillery. The water is gravity fed directly to the distillery where it is used in the gin making process.
TREE PLANTING SCHEME
We are fully committed to reducing our impact on the environment and pledge to plant a tree in our dedicated woodland area for every case of Kintyre Gin sold. When our distillery visitor centre opens, customers will also be offered the opportunity to plant a tree and leave a long lasting legacy on the estate.
SUPPORTING LOCAL COMMUNITIES
Beinn an Tuirc Distillery is proud to be a socially responsible business. We pledge to use a percentage of our profits for community projects and local business start-ups. We aim to encourage innovation and are keen to support local entrepreneurs with exciting ideas.
