Scotland's first farm-to-bottle gin


A super-premium Scottish 'single estate' gin has been launched by Arbikie, which claims to be Scotland's first farm-to-bottle distillery. Kirsty's Gin is the second spirit to be released by Arbikie following its launch of Scotland's first potato vodka. It is named after Arbikie's master distiller, Kirsty Black, who has been developing the gin for over two years. It uses Arbikie's potato vodka as its base spirit with a juniper-based recipe containing three traditional Scottish botanicals - kelp, carline thistle and blaeberries - all of which grow wild in the Angus area. This embodies elements of the ocean, rock and land, inspired by the environment of the distillery and the Angus region. It retails at £35 for 70cl and is 43% ABV.
