Find your perfect gin

Deeside Brewery was founded in Banchory in 2012 by Michael Bain. With the experience gained and success of the brewery, the team built an extension in 2017 to house their new experimental distillery – Deeside Distillery, which is thought to be the first new whisky distillery in the Royal Deeside area for almost 200 years. Deeside Distillery contract distil for other Scottish Gin makers and they produce their own range of “Still River” gins.

With the aim of producing original and innovative spirits led by head distiller Liam Pennycook, the distillery produces its own base spirit for various drinks, placing it alongside only a handful of other Scottish distilleries who use this approach of creating their base spirit from scratch. In 2018 Deeside Distillery created the world’s strongest gin with a 77% ABV strength – Naked Gin ‘Uncut’. There are also plans to open a new brewery and distillery with a tap room and visitor centre.
