Ten UK gin distilleries that grow the ingredients for their base spirit


Arbikie, located on the Arbikie Highland Estate on the east coast of Angus, is both a distillery and a family-owned, working farm. Like Chase, it promotes a farm-to-bottle approach, planting, sowing, growing and harvesting all its ingredients “within an arms-length of the distillery”.

Records show that distilling was taking place on the site way back in 1794, and this heritage inspired the three co-founders and brothers, Iain, John and David Stirling, to re-establish a distillery on the farm in 2013.

Arbikie produces two gins, the original AK’s Gin and Kirsty’s Gin, named after master distiller, Kirsty Black
