El:gin

Elgin, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

El:gin was launched in May 2016 by Leah Miller and Paul Hooper, who have over 25 years of experience between them of working in the distilling industry. Their aim was to create a gin that was different to the ‘normal’ gin and something that would entice the non-gin drinker to explore gin.

Using their traditional copper direct fire gin still, they perfected a recipe that was a reflection of both their ties to the Elgin area but that used a palette of unique Scottish botanicals and ingredients including oats.

Opting for a traditional distilling process by nosing and tasting the gin as it’s produced rather than relying on automated technology, ensures each batch is unique and truly crafted by hand.

El:gin Scottish Gin

Cranachan is a traditional Scottish dessert made with raspberries and oats, which are two of the key ingredients in this small batch Scottish Gin. This gin is described as fresh and crisp with a smooth and creamy texture. Each batch is created using a traditional copper pot still over direct heat where the distiller uses tasting and nosing to perfect the batch, which means each batch is truly crafted and unique.

El:gin Distillery

Tucked away on a private estate on the outskirts of Elgin, you’ll find the El:gin Distillery. Housed in a purpose built outbuilding, the distillery houses two traditional fired copper pot emblematic stills used to create the various El:gin gin expressions, El:gin gin based liqueurs and a new El:gin vodka. The estate is also home to some of the fruit and botanicals used by the team at El:gin along with an on-site source of fresh water from a local spring. Company is never in short supply as you’re greeted by the estate’s local inhabitants including red squirrels, red deer, a pony, a shetland pony and a donkey!
