About

Jenny McKerr runs a small livestock farm in South Lanarkshire and is the founder of The Wee Farm Distillery. Established in 2018, The Wee Farm Distillery produces small batch, hand crafted and genuine, honest rural Scottish Gin. Jenny uses the local landscape and Scotland’s long and rich agricultural history as inspiration for developing her recipes. The Wee Farm Distillery slowly infuse a mixture of traditional gin botanicals to create spirits that provide a real taste of the local landscape. Jenny distils, bottles and labels on the farm with help from her trusty sheep dog Victor.

Navy Strength Gin

Navy Strength Gin, sometimes called gunpowder or overproof, has to be at least 57% ABV to be classed as a Navy Strength Gin in the UK. It earned the name ‘Navy Strength’ because sailors used to test the ABV of their rationed gin on the ship by mixing it with a small quantity of gunpowder and if the mixture ignited they would know the gin was suitable and had not been watered down. The higher ABV can often amplify the flavours and aromas.

Production

The Wee Farm Distillery, the first micro-distillery in South Lanarkshire, is located in the Hills of Forth. Tucked away in an old traditional stone farm outbuilding, you’ll find the mint green door of the distillery. Inside you’ll find Jenny McKerr, owner and distiller of The Wee Farm Distillery. In 2020, Jenny updated her copper pot to a still modest 50 litre, distilling genuine small batch Scottish Gins and Scottish Gin based liqueurs.
