Tayport Distillery

Tayport, Fife, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

Established in 2017, the Tayport Distillery set out to create spirits that were Scottish in not only name but flavour. Founded by Kecia McDougall, originally from America, Kecia grew up around the apple orchards of Ohio. There were local tales of moonshiners hiding out with makeshift stills producing moonshine from whatever they could get their hands on, including the local apples.

Hopping over the pond to Scotland, Kecia released Scotland’s first Eau de Vie, Never 25, in 2017; a clear, colourless fruit brandy that is produced by means of fermentation and double distillation. Since this first sprint, the distillery has continued to grow releasing various award-winning products and spirits. In 2020, the distillery released its first gin, Wild Rose Gin. Tayport Distillery is also one of a select handful of distilleries in Scotland that produce their own base spirit, which is made from locally sourced grain.
