BrewDog Distilling Co. mill and mash their own grain, ferment their wort and distill their spirit. Everything is done from scratch, which means they are the custodians of their spirit at every stage in its creation. Made in small batches, painstakingly distilled and constantly tweaked to perfection over 192 different gin distillations.
Putting the last decade’s experience to good use, the BrewDog team set-up the distillery in 2017 led by Master Distiller Steven Kersley and introduced the world to their new spirits.
Lemongrass and Kaffir lime leaf add character. A zesty start gives way to delicate coriander notes, pink peppercorns and mace: a perfect complement to the citrus fruits. Lavender provides floral sweetness and Scots pine needles embeds the juniper.

Watched over carefully by a 30 foot high Lone Wolf, the BrewDog Distillery is both majestic and beautiful. Featuring a variety of stills, the distillery is home to what it thought to be the UK’s tallest column still coming in just shy of 60ft tall. The three headed bubble still and columns play a role in the creation of the base spirit that’s created on-site using a mix of wheat, barley and the distillery’s own special yeast before the final gin distillation takes place in a smaller 400 litre Arnold Holstein still.
