Taking its name from nearby Crosskirk Bay, this gin is a traditional gin distilled with juniper, rowan berries and Scots pine needles from a very unusual source - a family Christmas tree that was planted in 1993. Piney juniper combines with bright citrus to create a gin that’s classic in flavour profile with the pine and juniper, as well as slight undertones of herbaceous, earthy notes from the pine.
Located on the north coast of the Scottish mainland, North Point Distillery sits just a few short miles from the highland town of Thurso. Established in 2020 by friends Struan Mackie and Alex MacDonald, their love of whisky, rum and gin was the catalyst for setting up their own distillery along with their backgrounds in business and the drinks industry. The spirits produced at the distillery are influenced by the local area, which combines the rugged beauty of Scotland’s north coast with the tranquil, green and peaceful countryside. Sourcing a variety of ingredients as close to home as possible, Struan and Alex aims for the distillery are to not only produce premium spirits but also run the distillery with sustainability and the environment at the fore of their business operations.
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.
Overlooking the rugged North coasts of Scotland, the distillery is powered by 100% renewable energy, most of which comes from the on-site wind farm and with plans for a bio-waste energy plant, left over waste from the distillation process will be used and converted into energy providing further low-carbon energy for the distillery and local community.
