The Wee Farm Distillery

Climpy, South Lanarkshire, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

Jenny McKerr runs a small livestock farm in South Lanarkshire and is the founder of The Wee Farm Distillery. Established in 2018, The Wee Farm Distillery produces small batch, handcrafted genuine, honest rural Scottish Gins along with a range of Scottish Gin based liqueurs and other spirits. Jenny uses the local landscape and Scotland’s long and rich agricultural history as inspiration for developing her recipes.

The working farm is home to the Distillery and the Steak & Still Farm Shop, stocking a variety of locally sourced goods and fresh produce along with the Distillers Holiday Cottage, which can be booked for the perfect Scottish Gin rural escape. The Wee Farm Distillery is a family business so Jenny is never short of a pair of extra hands to help with filling bottles, processing orders and at times, helping with the sheep and cattle on the farm.
