Tarbraxus Distillery, makers of Pentland Hills Gin, can be found in the County of South Lanarkshire, positioned on the North Western edge of the Pentland Hills, an area bounded by low hills, moorland and interspersed with forests and fields.
The founders’ distilling ethos reflects their life of living within the countryside and sustaining the environment. They grow botanicals and generate power through renewable sources. Working with Scottish Woodlands, they have invested in replanting juniper and woodland regeneration. They also offer a gin refill service, which is an excellent way doing your bit for the environment.
