Crossbill Distilling

Glasgow, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

Crossbill Distillery can be found in the heart of one of Glasgow’s oldest and most famous areas, the legendary Barrowlands (more commonly known as The Barras), in the east end of Glasgow.

Situated in a purpose built facility in the Barras Art and Design building, Crossbill Distillery features both a working distillery and their own Gin School – The Hatchery Laboratory & Gin School.

Under the watchful eye of Crossbill Gin’s award winning distiller and founder Jonathan Engels, you can test and select your botanicals, create a botanical basket, then distill your very own gin in a miniature copper pot still.  Finally you can bottle your own gin creation and finish with your own bespoke label.

Crossbill Gin is a celebration of juniper and rosehip, two bold and fresh Highland botanicals. Made using only 100% Scottish handpicked botanicals, Crossbill have re-established a long lost tradition of harvesting Scottish juniper. For them, this creates a distinct taste evocative of the ancient pine forests where juniper has grown for centuries.

Special Edition Dry Gin

In the ancient juniper forests of Scotland, there are some rare plants which have been producing juniper for centuries, the grand dames of the highland forests.  So on discovering a specimen that is over 200 years old (in Scotland it's rare for Juniper to age more than 200 years), Crossbill decided to do something very special to honour this time aged fruit. At 59.8% Still Strength to enable maximum flavour penetration, the 200 Special Edition busts fresh pine and juniper essence with oils flocking at the slightest reduction in strength.
