Stirrup Cup Gin brings out the equestrian in us. Flowering near Bothy HQ in Kirriemuir, there is an abundance of gorse bushes that take over embankments, hedges and agricultural farm land, creating a wild yellow fragrant landscape. Gorse flower syrup is a natural flavouring with a subtle coconut smell and bitter almond taste.

It’s a hillwalking tradition to seek shelter and warmth after a long day on the hills. For some this is a cosy seat in the nearest pub, for others it’s a night in a bothy with a hip flask. Inspired by the history and heritage of Scottish bothy life, Gin Bothy was born and they embrace the old fashioned approach - homegrown and simple. What started off as a jam making business soon evolved into a gin brand, putting the excess fruit and leftovers to good use. Thanks to the stewardship of Kim Cameron, founder of Gin Bothy, the business today still follows the same founding principles that Gin Bothy was built upon - producing honest, local drinks that capture the landscape and reconnect with the past.
Flavoured Gins vary in flavour and colour. Often the gin will be infused with a flavour post-distillation through maceration or even the addition and blending of individual distillates or essences. Sometimes the gin will be created in one distillation. These styles of gin often have a key flavour which tends to lead the flavour profile, such as fresh berry fruit, citrus or any number of possible key botanicals and flavours. Although this gin style should still include juniper, it is often not the leading botanical.
Gin Bothy Gins are handmade using the cold compound or bathtub method and the base spirit is produced just over a mile away at a local distillery. They then infuse their Gins with Scottish botanicals, traditional botanicals and local seasonal fruits in small batches, working through the process by hand at each step. The Gin Bothy’s production and visitor experience are split over two sites. The current production facilitates are located on the outskirts of Kirriemuir and closed to the public. The Gin Bothy Experience is housed in a former stables block in the village of Glamis, home to the world famous Glamis Castle.
