Lynwilg, Highland, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

Kinrara’s Highland Distillery is nestled in 12,000 acres of Cairngorm National Park, just outside Aviemore. The centuries old Cairngorm estate was founded by Lady Jane Gordon, beautiful socialite and co-creator of the famous Gordon Highlanders. It was in her drawing room that Rabbie Burns first read his poetry to Edinburgh society.

One of Scotland’s newest micro-distilleries, Kinrara Distillery make unique Highland Dry Gin infused with local flora and berries. The team at Kinrara Distillery prides itself on creating a handcrafted small batch spirit using their direct-fired stills that were hand made for the distillery in Portugal. From the distillation right down to the bottling, everything is lovingly done by hand, by their passionate Highland team.

A juniper led dry gin, combining both foraged and locally sourced botanicals. The rosehip and rowan berries are gathered from the estate grounds throughout the year.
