About

Pixel Spirits is a small distillery set in the scenic grounds of the Loch Leven Hotel in North Ballachulish in the Scottish Highlands. Founded by husband and wife team, Craig and Noru Innes, the distillery has been self-built from scratch in line with their core values: handcrafted, bespoke and personal. Led by co-founder and distiller Craig, the Pixel Spirits team hand forage botanicals in the local area to create their artisan gins, which are carefully handcrafted in small batches of less than 100 bottles. They also run a gin making school where you can make your own unique small batch Scottish Gin.

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 Pixel Spirits Distillery is true to craft, being self-built from the shell of a 17th century A frame barn. They have painstakingly laboured to restore the barn and upgraded it to the standards of a current new build. As well as making a range of gins for the Pixel Spirits brand, they also distil small batch special editions and house gins for a number of other Scottish brands and businesses and run a gin school experience on site. For the first few years, all spirits have been made in a 100 litre still, but the couple has just recently invested in a new 500 litre iStill to support business growth.
