The Perth Distillery Co is a small-but-perfectly-formed independent distillery founded in 2017 and located beside the river Tay in the heart of Perth city. Owned and operated by gin lovers Iain and Elaine, all of our products and experiences are inspired by our love of home, the city of Perth. Our award winning brand and products have already been recognised nationally at the 2021 Scottish Gin Awards, being chosen as a finalist in a total of four categories with recognition for Perth Gin Original, and Winter Spiced Gin Liqueur, as well as Best Newcomer Distillery and winning with our Perth Pink product.
Something old and something new
The city of Perth has a rich and royal history. We are proud to build upon - and add something to - the traditions of the city with our range of high-quality premium gins and gin experiences. Our gins are for anyone who loves gin, and for anyone who loves Perth. As ardent lovers of both, we are proud to share that love with you in every single drop we produce. Even our location has ties to the history of the city; the distillery sits at ground level within the vast expanse of The Royal George Hotel in Tay Street and utilises a series of ancient arched former stables which once provided accommodation for Queen Victoria’s carriage horses when she stayed at the hotel.
Meg & Belle, the heartbeat of the distillery
All of our gins and gin liqueurs are hand-crafted in our two copper alembic stills. The stills, affectionately named Meg and Belle after the mothers of founders Iain and Elaine, were created for us by artisan craftsmen in Viana do Castelo in Portugal, working to our bespoke requirements. Our stills are unique, just like our wonderful spirits, and are the very heartbeat of the distillery. You can come see them in action by booking one of our gin experiences, including tastings, tours and gin making.
