Black Thistle Distilleries was established in 2018 in Brechin, in the heart of Angus, Scotland. A region renowned for producing fantastic crops including fruit and vegetables thanks in part to its varied landscape that mixes coastal waters and salt sea air with heather clad mountains that form part of the Cairngorms National Park.
With a variety of botanicals available from the local landscape and a rich heritage for producing quality food, the team at Black Thistle forage and hand-pick a variety of local botanicals that are then combined with more exotic botanicals and carefully blended together to create the Black Thistle range of spirits.
Black Thistle Gin blends a carefully curated selection of key botanicals including locally grown wild Scottish thistles, hand-picked orris root, caraway seeds, wormwood along with green juniper and coriander. Blended with filtered Scottish water to create a traditional gin flavour profile that is both crisp and smooth.
