About

Brothers Callum and Peter Sim were on a camper van holiday in 2017 that saw them visiting a number of Scottish Distilleries on the West Coast including a visit to Bruichladdich Distillery, home to The Botanist. That night they found themselves sitting under the stars talking about what botanicals would make up their ideal Scottish Gin. As young boys the brothers had been fascinated with Norse mythology, especially the mighty Odin and the story of his two ravens, sitting watchfully over his throne. A plan was literally hatched the next morning and Raven Spirits took flight.

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

Brothers Peter and Callum Sim spent over a year developing their ideal flavour combination, developing the recipe and testing small batches. Agreeing to distil themselves on site, they partnered with nearby Deeside Distillery to refine and upscale their signature Hrafn (pronoucned Ra-vn), meaning Raven in Old Norse. The distillery is home to a variety of still types, including a modern iStill and a bespoke Adolf Adrian copper still.
