This centuries-old method of making spirits is increasingly rare as big companies produce spirits as a global commodity. It is this traditional ethos we have returned to.
The Arbikie Highland Estate distillery is a genuinely single-site operation – the ingredients for all our spirits are planted, sown, grown and harvested within an arms-length of our distillery.
The mountain-filtered water is taken from our underground lagoon.
Records show distilling on this site dating back to 1794 – it is the farm-to-bottle culture used by these ancient distillers that inspired our distilling ethos.
Premium spirits can only come from the highest quality ingredients, and being independent and family-owned we are in the enviable position of being able to oversee standards every single step of the way.
Drawing from decades of farming experience, we grow the barley for our single malt whisky (cask sales only for now), and the three varieties of potato that combine to create the exceptional smoothness and creaminess of our vodka and our gin.
