Clear
Ice & Fire Distillery was created by a family of Highland Crofters who wanted to try something different to sustain their crofting heritage. What better way to survive than to make spirits from the local water and botanicals, which harks back to an era when crofters made illegal Whisky in their crofts. Caithness Highland Gin uses rhubarb, which was and still is a staple in any crofting garden along with salmonberries picked from the Latheronwheel Strath.

About

Ice & Fire Distillery was created by a family of Highland Crofters who wanted to try something different to sustain their crofting heritage. Whilst crofting is a way of life, it has to be supplemented to survive. What better way to survive than to make spirits from the local water and botanicals, which harks back to an era when crofters made illegal Whisky on their crofts. The team create true craft spirits, and they wanted to use this craftsmanship and authenticity to restore the craft definition and consumer trust. The team’s ethos is to combine their knowledge and skills in distilling with a passion for their natural home-grown ingredients, ensuring every bottle they produce is truly handcrafted, small batch and full of character.

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

The Ice & Fire Distillery sits in the rolling agricultural landscape of Caithness and just a short distance from the rugged Caithness coastline. The distillery with its hillside position provides a number of stunning views around the local area and is accessed by a farm track that takes you off the beaten track. The distillery houses two traditional Alembic copper pot stills that are gas fired. Distillation, bottling and waxing all takes place on-site at the distillery by the family team.
