Black Thistle Distillery

Brechin, Angus, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

Black Thistle Distillery was established in 2018 in Brechin, in the heart of Angus, Scotland. A region renowned for producing fantastic crops including fruit and vegetables thanks in part to its varied landscape that mixes coastal waters and salt sea air with heather clad mountains that form part of the Cairngorms National Park.

With a variety of botanicals available from the local landscape and a rich heritage for producing quality food, the team at Black Thistle forage and hand-pick a variety of local botanicals that are then combined with more exotic botanicals and carefully blended together to create the Black Thistle range of spirits.
