A celebration of the natural habitat of the Scottish Crossbill’s cousin, the North American Red Crossbill. Working in collaboration with a forager in New Hampshire, the team at Crossbill used freshly picked staghorn and infused it into Crossbill Gin to give a unique sumac citrus blast of the natural habitat of the American Red Crossbill. Described as exceptionally dry with a pleasant floral and tangy taste of citrus fruit.

About

Crossbill originally started life on a small estate on the outskirts of Aviemore in the Scottish Highlands before relocating in 2017 to its current home in Glasgow’s famous Barras. The Hatchery distillery is home to Crossbill’s distillation of Scottish Gins along with a gin school and shop. The core Scottish Gins are created using a limited number of hand-foraged fresh botanicals, which are carefully and ethically foraged in the Scottish Highlands before being prepared for distillation. It’s this process of using wild Scottish botanicals along with a slow maceration process under the watchful eye of the distillery team that gives Crossbill Gins their balanced fresh flavour of the Scottish Highlands.

Distilled Gin

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.

Production

Formerly based at a distillery in the Scottish Highlands, Crossbill Distilling moved to their current distillery, known as The Hatchery, in the heart of Glasgow’s Barrowlands in the Spring of 2017. The distillery, which is in the Barras Art and Design (BAaD) centre, features a traditional Alembic copper pot still, used for all the Crossbill Gin distillations. The distillery also features a gin school where visitors can create their own Scottish Gin recipe before distilling on a mini copper pot still.
