A super premium Scottish gin has been launched by Scotland’s first farm to bottle distillery.
‘Kirsty’s Gin’ is named after Arbikie’s Master Distiller Kirsty Black, who has been developing it for over two years.
The gin embodies elements of the ocean, rock and land, reflecting the estate’s environment - a 2000-acre farm, stretching out to Lunan Bay.
Kirsty’s Gin sticks to a traditional juniper base, with three traditional Scottish botanics, Kelp, Carline Thistle and Blaeberrys (all of which grow wild in the Angus area).
Unlike the majority of Gin, which is made from a neutral base spirit, Kirsty’s Gin is distilled from Arbikie’s potato vodka, giving the gin an extra smooth and distinctive taste.
Kirsty said: “I’m delighted to see two years of hard work culminate in ‘Kirsty’s Gin’.
“I wanted to create something truly unique, inspired by the Angus region.
“Not many distillers get the chance to have a drink named after them; so I hope all the gin enthusiasts out there enjoy drinking it as much as I enjoyed making it.”

Aimed at the discerning drinker, Kirsty’s Gin is made to enjoy simply with ice, but is spectacular as the iconic G&T.
Arbikie Gin is distributed throughout the UK at £35 per bottle. Available from www.arbikie.com.
