Makers of artisan single malt whisky and The Botanist gin


We are proudly nonconformist and believe the world needs an antidote to homogeneity and blandness. 
We passionately believe in terroir - in authenticity, place and provenance, in ultimate traceability.
We seek to produce the most natural, thought-provoking, intellectually stimulating & enjoyable spirit possible.
We strive to produce a more characterful spirit, with more integrity and provenance, and expressive of this wonderful island we are lucky to live on. 
Part of the Remy Cointreau family, we are a truly global business with distributors, core influencers and loyal consumers worldwide.



The Botanist is the essence of our philosophy, our art and our pioneering spirit.
This first and only Islay Dry Gin is a rare expression of the heart and soul of our remote Scottish island home.
In an age of re-badged industrial gins, the Botanist stands out as a truly artisanal, small-batch, hand-crafted labour of love and distiller’s art. A breath of botanical Islay in every glass.
Inspired by the foraged ingredients for The Botanist, we are at the heart of the footage flavours movement - made up of inspired chefs, bartenders and consumers worldwide. This activity is at the heart of our brand.
