Description

Beinn an Tuirc Distillery proudly presents Kintyre Gin, a beautifully blended spirit using carefully selected botanicals which reflect their unique coastal, pasture and woodland position on the east coast of the Kintyre peninsula.

Kintyre Gin is sustainably produced using their very own renewable energy, powered from the small hydro-electric scheme at Torrisdale Castle Estate. The water is sourced from the hill from which they take their name. ‘Beinn an Tuirc’ translates from gaelic as ‘The Hill of the Wild Boar’ and is the highest point in Kintyre, located above our distillery building.

Kintyre Gin is a Classic London Dry Gin using traditional and unique botanicals. Kintyre Gin offers a delicate juniper, citrus and floral spirit with a warm spice to finish.

Botanicals - Juniper, coriander, almond, liquorice, angelica root, cassia bark, orange and lemon peel, orris root, cubeb berry, Icelandic moss and sheep sorrel.

Nose - Vibrant fresh juniper to the fore with delicate floral and citrus notes.

Palate - Juniper leads into the zesty citrus and light floral notes from the Icelandic moss and sheep sorrel. Finish A smooth, dry finish with a warm lingering spice.

Renewable Hydro Energy

They embrace wet weather here at Beinn an Tuirc! Their 99kw hydro-electric scheme powers their copper still, giving Kintyre Gin unique eco credentials. The turbine house is located just a few yards away from the distillery and the source of the burn can be found high up on Beinn an Tuirc itself.

Tree Planting Scheme

They are fully committed to reducing our impact on the environment and pledge to plant a tree in the dedicated woodland area for every case of Kintyre Gin sold. When the distillery visitor centre opens, customers will also be offered the opportunity to plant a tree and leave a long lasting legacy on the estate.

Local Spring Water

Scotland’s unique fresh spring water has a long association with malt whisky production and is also a vital ingredient in gin distillation. They have their own ready supply from a Victorian spring located just above the distillery. The water is gravity fed directly to the distillery where it is used in the gin making process.

Supporting Local Communities

Beinn an Tuirc Distillery is proud to be a socially responsible business. They pledge to use a percentage of their profits for community projects and local business start-ups. They aim to encourage innovation and are keen to support local entrepreneurs with exciting ideas.
