About

Completed in 2018 and officially opened in 2019, the Glenrinnes Distillery sits in the shadow of the mighty Ben Rinnes, the mountain which inspired the name for the Eight Lands spirits. On a clear day, it’s said you can see eight different regions of Scotland. Located in the heart of whisky country, between the Highlands and the River Spey, the distillery is the newest addition to the Glenrinnes Farm’s family-run estate, which is recognised as an award-winning organic producer of premium food. The Glenrinnes Distillery produces a variety of organic Scottish spirits including Eight Lands Speyside Gin and Eight Lands Speyside Vodka. All production including distillation, bottling and labelling takes place on-site at the distillery under careful supervision to produce authentic, excellent spirits using a number of locally sourced sustainable ingredients including the fresh water that flows freely past the distillery door at the foot of Ben Rinnes.

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 distillery has been carefully designed to fit into the agricultural setting of the landscape and upon first glance appears to be like any other agricultural building in the area. It’s only upon closer inspection you’ll see the name Glennrinnes Distillery adorned across the building. Completed in 2019, the Glenrinnes Distillery sits at the foot of Ben Rinnes, a local mountain and landmark in the Speyside region of Scotland. The distillery is home to a custom built still from local Coppersmiths Speyside Copper Works, which has been designed to give greater flexibility and control over the finished spirits produced. On the second floor you’ll discover the tasting room, which provides a birds eye view over the distillery and local landscape.
