Featuring over 50 producers, the gin map gives the best glimpse yet at just how much the Scottish gin scene has exploded over the past few years

The map features big names such as Eden Mill and William Grant and Son (who produce Hendrick’s), as well as smaller distilleries such as Pixel Spirits, Lost Loch Distillery and the Kelso Gin Distillery, which produces The Crow Man gin.

As part of the launch on their website, the Society has also created a new A-Z of Scottish Gins featuring all of the gin brands currently sold by Scottish companies including those which are not included on the map – due to them not having their own still.

Established favourites such as Isle of Harris, Arbikie and Rock Rose all appear alongside some of the newest gins on the scene including Kinrara and Lundin Distilling who produce Gorse Gin.

Alison Higgins, ambassador for the Scottish Gin Society, said: “Featuring all of the distilleries that make gin in Scotland, the map also lists all those open for tours, tastings and even where you can make your own gin.

“Our A-Z, that features all the Scottish gin brands, is an ever evolving source of information and will be updated regularly as new gins come out and brands open their own distilleries.”
As mentioned above, The map is also a great source for gin tourists with the distilleries that host tours all colour coded to provide an excellent guide for those
looking to find out more about their favourite gin direct from the producer.
