Clear
AK’S Gin is distilled using honey and wheat farmed at Arbikie, along with carefully selected botanicals chosen by their Master Distiller, Kirsty Black. As farmers, they perfectly nurture the ingredients used to distil the gin, giving both an amazing provenance as well as full traceability for their family of ultra-premium spirits. It is the creation of this truly unique spirit that sets Arbikie apart from other gins, as they grow, distil and bottle on their single-estate in a true field to bottle operation.

About

Arbikie Distillery draws from four centuries of farming experience within the Stirling Family. Developing from a dairy farm, to crops and then innovating to become one of the world’s few field-to-bottle distilleries. Perched by the scenic views of Lunan Bay, all ingredients for Arbikie spirits are planted, sown, grown and harvested in the surrounding 2,000 acres that make up the estate. The ingenious distilling team of Kirsty Black, Christian Perez and Mark McNulty are there to ensure that the history, tradition and provenance of Scottish distilling is built into the DNA of each Arbikie spirit.

London Dry Gin

London Dry Gin is both a flavour profile and a production method. London Dry Gins tend to follow the traditional, classic flavour of piney juniper, citrus and spice. Alongside juniper, botanicals in London Dry Gin often include orris root, angelica root, cassia bark, citrus peel and coriander, among the core botanicals. The result is a dry gin that features piney juniper along with bursts of citrus and warming spice and earthy, dry notes from use of botanicals such as cassia bark and coriander. Nothing synthetic can be added like flavourings or colours and nothing can be added post distillation apart from water and a tiny amount of sugar meaning all flavours come from distillation.

Production

Transformed from the remains of an old cattle barn, Arbikie is the first single-estate distillery to distil all spirits in the same copper pot stills, with the vodka and gin spirit continuing their journey to a 40-plate distillation column. This distillation process means all Arbikie spirits reflect the traditional Scotch whisky method. Each spirit is distilled differently, with the base spirit for Arbikie gins being triple-distilled. Arbikie spirits are bottled, labelled and sealed on the estate.
