Established in 2017 by husband and wife Neil and Katie Sime, Blackford Craft Distillery is a family run, micro distillery based out of a 19th century steading in Blackford, near Rothienorman. Nestled amongst the rolling hills of rural Aberdeenshire, the distillery produces premium, handcrafted, small batch spirits, which are inspired by the local landscape and Aberdeenshire’s prehistoric past and links to The Picts. Blackford Craft Distillery’s logo was designed based on a local Pictish carved standing stone.
As craft distillers, the family is involved in every aspect of the distillation process from selecting ingredients to hand labelling and waxing every bottle. Each bottle has a vintage, a batch number, is uniquely numbered and signed, so no two bottles will ever be the same.
Vesperis Gin is the signature gin from the Blackford Craft Distillery. This gin uses a variety of organic botanicals including locally sourced heather honey and apples to create a sweetness and subtle spice along with a lasting woody, pine flavour.
