Scottish Gins

Isle of Cumbrae Distillers

Find your perfect gin

The distillery was established by Bronwyn Jenkins-Deas, Julia Dempsey, Lynda Gill, Philippa Dalton and Jenine Ward. With diverse nationalities including Canadian, American and British, the all female distilling team came together over a few gins and an idea to help raise funds to save Millport’s historic Town Hall building. Located on the West Coast of Scotland, Isle of Cumbrae is just short 8-minute ferry ride from the mainland town of Largs. Surrounded by an ever-changing sea and magnificent views of the surrounding islands, its main town of Millport embodies the typical small Scottish island community, with a historic Victorian town centre, dotted with a range of shops and pubs, overlooking the picturesque harbour.
