Beinn an Tuirc

Kintyre, Argyll & Bute, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

Beinn an Tuirc Distillery occupies a former piggery building located on the Torrisdale Castle Estate in Kintyre, Scotland. Torrisdale Castle Estate has been in the ownership of the Macalister Hall family since 1872 and over the years has benefited from innovative diversification. A successful self-catering business began in the early 1980’s, started by the current laird’s parents and continues to thrive today. With the installation of a biomass boiler and a 99kw hydro-electric scheme, the estate including the distillery, is focused on reducing its carbon footprint.

Beinn an Tuirc Distillery marks an exciting new chapter in Torrisdale’s diverse history and it is hoped that Kintyre Gin will help to further promote this beautiful part of Scotland with the estate providing visitors with magnificent views over the Kilbrannan Sound to the Isle of Arran.

Kintyre Botanical Gin

Kintyre Gin includes 12 botanicals in their core expression, which have all been sustainably sourced. To achieve the characteristics of a very flavoursome and well-balanced spirit, the gin consists of 10 commonly used botanicals, with the addition of 2 which are unique, namely Icelandic moss and sheep sorrel - both grow on the estate in abundance. Either through maceration or vapour infusion, these produce a gin which is described as having earthy and spicy characteristics, being deep in flavour, with a very pleasant floral aroma. A true taste of Kintyre!

Kintyre Oak Aged Botanical Gin

A unique infusion of Beinn an Tuirc’s signature Kintyre Gin with the subtle caramel and vanilla notes of classic American bourbon. Aged in a first-fill bourbon barrel from Heaven Hills in Kentucky. The spirit was left to imbibe the flavours for around three months which was enough time for the distinctive bourbon essences to soak in, resulting in an exceptional spirit, evocative of its American origins.
