Kirsty’s Gin is distilled using the carefully selected local botanicals chosen by Master Distiller, Kirsty Black. The kelp, carline thistle and blaeberry embody the elements of ocean, rock and land that surround the east coast and Angus farmlands. As fourth generation Scottish farmers, the team at the Arbikie Highland Estate perfectly nurture the crops that are used to distil their gin. They grow, distil and bottle on their single estate in a true farm to bottle operation.

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.
Distilled Gins are similar to London Dry Gins, except natural or artificial flavourings can be added after the distillation process. The flavours can vary greatly and some gins can often cross over to other gin styles, for example where sugars have been added to created an Old Tom style gin or maceration with fruit to create a Flavoured Gin. Some Distilled Gins also follow the London Dry style to the letter but go on to include additional botanical/s to their gin post-distillation and therefore can’t be classed as a London Dry Gin. Distilled Gin is sometimes referred to as Contemporary, New American, New Western or International style gin.
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.
