Clear
Home to the 1881 Distillery and inspired by the Peebles Hydro’s former tennis pavilion on the front lawn, Pavilion Gin features a classic gin backbone with the addition of wild Scottish red berries. In the 1920s, the hotel had more tennis courts than Wimbledon, hence this inspired flavoured gin. Along with the red berries, this gin also has a slight hint of floral hibiscus. A refreshing and light gin intended for long, warm summer evenings.

About

Peebles Hydro, home to 1881 Distillery and gin school was originally a retreat for therapeutic water treatments. Built around the Shieldgreen spring, a private spring on the hotel’s estate, the fresh and mineral rich water was said to be ‘legendary’ for its therapeutic properties. The rich mineral spring still flows and is used in the hotel's gins and tonics. Already featuring an extensive list of gins available to guests, and with growing demand for local produce including food and drink, the hotel decided to create its own distillery, gin school and gins, influenced by the history of the hotel and local area.

Flavoured Gin

Flavoured Gins vary in flavour and colour. Often the gin will be infused with a flavour post-distillation through maceration or even the addition and blending of individual distillates or essences. Sometimes the gin will be created in one distillation. These styles of gin often have a key flavour which tends to lead the flavour profile, such as fresh berry fruit, citrus or any number of possible key botanicals and flavours. Although this gin style should still include juniper, it is often not the leading botanical.

Production

Named after the year the Peebles Hydro was built, the 1881 Distillery and Gin School officially opened in October 2019, within the Peebles Hydro Hotel. The distillery was designed and built with the help of Jamie Baxter, who is a distillery designer and a renowned distiller in his own right. He worked with the distillery team to develop the four core gin recipes and four tonics that were created specifically to complement each gin.
