Smithies Gin is the brainchild of Patti Smith, owner of Smithies Deli in Arbroath, and her two daughters, Jill and Beth, each of whom have been inspired by craft distillers who are making original spirits that also have a story to tell. Patti first opened the doors of the Smithies Deli in 2000 on the site of an old Lipton Tea shop which was also a former butchers shop in Arbroath. Over the past 18 years the deli has evolved into a coffee shop with focus on selling a wide variety of spirits and liqueurs. The inspiration for the gin came from Patti’s dad Donald’s beloved garden, filled with beautiful plants, flowers and herbs.
Distilled under contract in Arbroath, Angus.
