The range of Kelso Gins reflect the changing nature and seasons of the beautiful and bountiful Scottish Borders, using natural and locally foraged ingredients. Made by real people (with real passion) with the finest quality organic pure grain all based on The Crow Man’s original powerful tinctures.
Legend tells that The Crow Man was a travelling medicine man who toured the Borders offering the ailing, the weary and the lovelorn ‘little brighteners’ from his leather gladstone bag. Tales were told of men who were restored and women who were soothed by his special mixes of herbs, spices and secret ingredients.
Kelso’s Lead Gin, the classic juniper, but with a twist... subtle tones of cinnamon, angelica and other secrets from the Crow Man's hidden recipes make this a deliciously smooth gin.

Location: Kelso Gin Distillery, Scottish Borders, Scotland
The distillery can be found on the rural site that forms the Harestanes Countryside Visitor Centre and estate. Discreetly tucked away, the only thing that really gives away the age of the building that houses the distillery is the carved date stone sitting above the door dated 1887. The distillery features two large, traditional style Alembic copper stills where all the Kelso Gin Company products are distilled. All bottling and labelling is done by hand on-site and also the waxing of the bottle caps. If you’re lucky, you’ll receive a bottle with the special crow’s foot print imprinted in the wax seal.
Booking: Please contact Kelso Gin Company on 01573 226883 to organise a visit.
