It’s a hillwalking tradition to seek shelter and warmth after a long day on the hills. For some this is a cosy seat in the nearest pub, for others it’s a night in a bothy with a hip flask. Inspired by the history and heritage of Scottish bothy life, Gin Bothy was born and they embrace the old fashioned approach.
Homegrown and simple – Gin Bothy’s award winning bothy is nestled in the Angus Glens of Scotland, where they create premium gins.
They infuse their Gins with local seasonal fruits in extremely small batches, working through the process by hand at each step.
Handmade in small batches in their award winning Bothy, nestled in the Angus Glens of Scotland. Gin Bothy is proud to support the Woodland Trust and Loch Arkaig by donating £1 for every bottle sold to help conserve and regenerate the forest.
