About Seven Crofts gin

Made in the northwest Highlands of Scotland this classic, London-style gin is stocked in some of the world’s finest bars.

The small batch, dry gin is hand distilled in Ullapool with notes of perfumed forest fruits, and spicy hints of coriander and pink peppercorns giving it a long, warm finish.

Seven Crofts was launched in 2019 and is named after the original seven private dwellings that made up Ullapool in 1791.

Seven Crofts gin is available at selected retailers or for delivery nationwide online here.
