The Teasmith Spirit Company

Udny, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

Established in Udny, Aberdeenshire in 2016 by husband and wife Nick and Emma Smalley, The Teasmith creators were inspired to form a gin that captured the essence of the land and stories that surrounded them. The region’s largely unknown rich historical links to the tea-trade influenced their spirits and the careful blend of finely curated botanicals, specifically the use of hand-picked tea to give their gin its characteristic taste. It was a young man called James Taylor from Auchenblae in the North East of Scotland who planted the very first tea plantation in Sri Lanka, known as the ‘Father of Ceylon Tea’.

The Teasmith Original Gin is distilled with a black loose leaf Ceylon tea sourced from the Amba Estate, Sri Lanka. Hand-picked and hand-rolled, it embodies the way Taylor made his first batches over 150 years ago.

The Teasmith Original Gin

A careful blend of finely curated botanicals and hand-picked tea is what gives The Teasmith Original Gin its characteristic taste. Juniper, coriander, grains of paradise, orange peel and other carefully selected botanicals are distilled not once, but twice in traditional copper alembic stills. Through this delicate process of distillation, each individual ingredient is carefully blended to ensure The Teasmith is a truly unique gin, characterised by its clarity, simplicity and confidence.

Part of the Grower’s Edition series, a Limited Edition of only 1000 bottles and also a world's first - the first gin to be distilled using Scottish grown tea. Featuring a carefully selected and harvested Broich Black Tea that's been nurtured and grown on the banks of the River Earn in Crieff, grown as part of the Tea Gardens of Scotland group. Thanks to the addition of this special tea as a botanical along with 12 other botanicals including Juniper, Coriander Seed and Orange Peel, this has resulted in a flavour profile that is juniper led but has bursts of apple and honey.
