One of only the few barrel-aged gins in Scotland, this London Dry style is aged for three months in an oak whisky barrel.

The ethos behind Crafty Distillery is simple: to create tasty spirits from scratch using new technology and locally sourced ingredients. And with Galloway as its home, Hills & Harbour Gin has the perfect larder for its ingredients, surrounded by forests and unspoilt coastline. Ingredients include Noble Fir Pine needles and Bladderwrack seaweed, balanced with nine other botanicals to create a sweet and peppery profile, with hints of forestry, fruits and a subtle scent of the shore.
