Named Kirsty’s Gin after master distiller Kirsty Black, the new product is distilled from Arbikie potato vodka and is described as having a “traditional” juniper base with three Scottish botanicals of kelp, carline thistle and blueberries.

The new release has been designed to combine elements of sea, rock and land to reflect the estate’s surroundings – a 2,000 acre farm spanning to Lunan Bay on the east coast of Scotland.

“I’m delighted to see two years of hard work culminate in ‘Kirsty’s Gin’,” commented Black.

“I would like to thank all those who helped me along the way, in particular Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh Botanics and the Forfar Botanists.”

“It is great to see yet another stunning drink produced by Kirsty and the team,” said Iain Stirling, commercial director.

“This is Scotland’s first farm to bottle gin, which further adds to our growing reputation of producing luxury spirits of superior quality and taste.”

Kirsty’s Gin is bottled at 43% abv and is distributed throughout the UK by Gordon and MacPhail with an RRP of £35 per 700ml bottle.
