Brothers Callum and Peter Sim were on a camper van holiday in 2017 and they found themselves sitting under the stars talking about what botanicals would make up their ideal Scottish Gin. As young boys the brothers had been fascinated with Norse mythology, especially the mighty Odin and the story of his two ravens, sitting watchfully over his throne. A plan was literally hatched the next morning.
The brothers spent over a year developing their ideal flavour combination, refining and developing the recipe, testing small batches. With the assistance of an old friend at a nearby distillery in Royal Deeside, they distilled their first batch and Hrafn (pronoucned Ra-vn) meaning Raven in Old Norse took flight.
