Our Byron's Gin are both multi-layered with traditional juniper enhanced with local herbs and garden botanicals from the grounds of our boutique, artisan distillery, nestled in the Cairngorm National Park.
Here at Speyside Distillery our distiller and master craftsman Sandy Jamieson, along with Andy Amphlett (County Recorder for the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland), have united to craft two stunning new gins.
Infusing their professional skills, expertise in their respective fields and most importantly their deep passion - they have created a unique and new gin experience for the more sophisticated palate.
This tradition is now being continued by Distillery Manager Allan Findlay.
