The Isle of Bute is a picturesque island located off of Scotland’s West Coast. Small in size, big on scenery, the island is the inspiration behind the Isle of Bute Gins. The brand made a splash in 2019 when they launched their two signature gin expressions, one of which included the use of Oyster shells as a key botanical. Since then the team have expanded their range, moved production back home, all the while working with experienced distiller Simon Tardivel and a beautiful 200 litre copper pot still. They now offer tours, tastings and an on site gin garden in the main town of Rothesay.

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.


Although the initial batch was distilled on Bute, the team had to upscale and produce subsequent batches at their Merchant City Brewing Co. premises in Glasgow for around 18 months. Their long-awaited return to Bute was historical for the team and island community. Production at the new distillery officially commenced in early 2020 and now all the Isle of Bute Gins are proudly distilled on the island.
