Jenny McKerr runs a small livestock farm in South Lanarkshire and is the founder of The Wee Farm Distillery. Established in 2018, The Wee Farm Distillery produces small batch, hand crafted genuine, honest rural Scottish Gin. Jenny uses the local landscape and Scotland’s long and rich agricultural history as inspiration for developing her recipes.
The Wee Farm Distillery’s micro copper gin still ‘Morag’ is used to slowly infuse a mixture of traditional gin botanicals to create spirits that provide a real taste of the local landscape. Jenny distills, bottles and labels on the farm with help from her trusty sheep dog Victor.
