Join the Arbikie Highland Estate Distillery at Whisky & Gin Live Celebrations and get to experience their Kirsty’s Gin and AK’S Gin.
About the brand
The Arbikie Highland Estate distillery is a genuinely single-estate operation. The ingredients for all of their spirits are planted, sown, grown, and harvested within an arms’ length of their distillery. Arbikie is privately owned by the Stirling family and led by three brothers whose childhood was spent on the Arbikie farm. They gained an intuitive understanding of the farm that has been passed from father to son since 1660.
Kirsty’s Gin is distilled using the carefully selected local botanicals chosen by the Master Distiller, Kirsty Black.
The Kelp, Carline Thistle & Blaeberry embody the elements of ocean, rock & land that surround their east coast, Angus farmlands. As fourth generation Scottish farmers they perfectly nurture the crops that they use to distil their gin.
They grow, distil & bottle on their single estate in a true farm-to-bottle operation.
AK’S Gin is distilled using honey and wheat farmed at Arbikie along with carefully selected botanicals chosen by the Master Distiller, Kirsty Black. AK’S Gin took home the title of World’s Best Martini in 2018 at the World’s Best Martini Competition in London.
As farmers, they perfectly nurture the ingredients they use to distil giving both an amazing provenance as well as full traceability for their family of ultra-premium spirits.
It is the creation of their own unique spirit that sets them apart from other gins, as they grow, distil and bottle on their single-estate in a true field to bottle operation.
So, if you feel like this is the kind of Gin to suit your palate, come through to enjoy the great taste of genuine single-estate operation.
