Saturday Afternoon - Gin Tasting

Sat, Jun 29th 2024 at 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

This opportunity is courtesy of Selkirk Distillers.

Selkirk Distillers produced their first craft gin in September 2017. Its architects believed that the Scottish Borders, with its rich history and wealth of natural resources, could produce high quality spirits. This was proven with the successful launch of Selkirk Gin.

The main botanical in Selkirk Gin grows wild on the rolling lowland hills of Selkirkshire.  The gorse flower, known as the golden flower of Thor, is handpicked by the creators before being used as one of the main botanicals in Selkirk Gin.

Selkirk Distillers' next creation was launched in December 2017. Bannock Gin also had its base ingredient deeply rooted in Selkirk. The Bannock used in the process comes from Cameron's Bakery in Selkirk, home of the original bannock. The first batch of this delightful ‘bannock in a bottle’ almost sold out in one day

The owners of Selkirk Distillery have always held a keen desire to help support charities close to their hearts. This has been instrumental in the production of three official fundraising gins. 1953 - MS Society Gin. The Thin Blue Line Gin Tilda’s Tipple - Brain Tumour Charity Gin. Over £10,000 has been raised so far through these charity gins with donations continuing to be made with each sale.


As well as using locally sourced ingredients, Selkirk Distillers have embraced local artists when it comes to label designs for their core and seasonal gins. Notably talented tattoo artist, Conor McAllister, who is responsible for Selkirk and Bannock Gin designs and specially commissioned artwork from renowned artist Rob Hain for their Seasonal and Cask Aged Gin Labels.
