Highland Liquor Co.

Ullapool, Highland, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

The Highland Liquor Co. has grown from the village of Ullapool just as the village grew from the 1788 fishing station planned on the shores of Loch Broom. The original settlement, on Scotland’s West Highland coast, included a boat builder, a rope maker, a cooper, a blacksmith, a fish curer and a mason.

Several of these crafts survive to this day and have been joined by many new makers including The Highland Liquor Co. Back in 1791, the original settlers in the first seven dwellings sought to establish the village by generating growth and this drive continues in the community today. In the spirit of these original settlers, The Highland Liquor Co. are the creators of exceptional handmade spirits in the North West Highlands.

Seven Crofts Gin

Isle Martin Gin 2020 Edition was created with the support of the Isle Martin Trust and uses botanicals foraged from Isle Martin, an uninhabited island in Loch Broom on the west coast of Scotland. Regeneration of the native woodland on the island started in the 1980’s, including the planting of juniper. It was in 2018, when the Highland Liquor Company was creating their signature Seven Crofts Gin, that they were approached by the Isle Martin Trust and asked to create a gin marking 20 years of the trust. The team spent 12 months foraging, drying and developing the final recipe which includes Juniper, Angelica Root, Burdock Root, Loganberry Flower and Bog Myrtle, creating a unique and limited edition Scottish Gin.
