Crafty Distillery

Newton Stewart, Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

The Crafty Distillery is nestled on the edge of Newton Stewart, a market town in Scotland’s Dumfries and Galloway region. The distillery is a modern grain-to-glass distillery that produces its base alcohol spirit from scratch, one of only a select few gin distilleries in Scotland. The small but dedicated and passionate team behind the distillery, led by Graham Taylor and Craig Rankin, produces a range of Scottish spirits, including Scottish Gins, vodka, and distilled cocktails. The team is also currently working on a range of Scotch whisky. 

Every spirit produced at the distillery is made with care and skill to try and capture the story of the local area through the use of local ingredients along with their base alcohol made with locally sourced crops. The Crafty team’s co-founders’ ethos is that if a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing correctly.
