Esker Spirits

Kincardine O'Neil, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

Esker Spirits is Royal Deeside’s first gin distillery and was founded in October 2015 by husband and wife Steve and Lynne Duthie. A keen interest in gin evolved into nearly 2 years experimentation with a 1 litre copper still in their kitchen. An empty workshop at the bottom of the garden became the first Esker distillery with one goal – to produce premium spirits with a real taste experience for the consumer.

In late summer 2016, Esker’s popularity meant that an expansion was in order and the search began for new premises, and in early 2017 the distillery moved to the Kincardine Estate, the home of its silver birch sap. Multi award winning Esker Gin is now produced and bottled in the family owned distillery located on the Kincardine Highland Estate, Royal Deeside, Scotland.
