Isle of Bute Gin

Isle of Bute, Argyll and Bute, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

The Isle of Bute is a picturesque island located off of Scotland’s West Coast. Small in size, big on scenery, the island is the inspiration behind the Isle of Bute Gins. Currently distilled by head distiller Simon Tardivel in Glasgow, the team are currently in the process of moving production and their gorgeous 200 litre copper still back to Bute, with the goal of distillation on the Isle by 2020.

Simon regularly travels to Bute to forage for botanicals including handpicked gorse from the grounds of Mount Stuart and he continues to explore the island for new botanicals and development of further expressions.

Isle of Bute Gin’s business philosophy and products go well beyond their love of juniper. The Highlands and Islands of Scotland are this country’s major drawcard and the team seek to support jobs in the local community whilst showcasing local produce and collaboration between tourism offerings.
