Persie Distillery

Bridge of Cally, Perth & Kinross, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

Persie Gin is the brainchild of the people behind the world’s first touring gin club, Simon Fairclough and his wife Chrissie. Simon toured the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland and other parts of the UK teaming up up with distillers, pubs, hotels and restaurants at the forefront of the drinks industry to help thousands of gin-lovers in their quest to find the perfect snifter. Using the feedback gained also played a role in couple’s decision to set up their own distillery.

So in 2013 Simon gained his qualification from the Institute of Brewing and Distilling and with his wife Chrissie’s encouragement and support, the couple purchased the Persie Hotel in Glenshee with the goal of creating a distillery and visitor centre. The distillery and visitor centre opened in 2014 and the couple set to work perfecting their gin recipes – the end result is Persie Gin.
