TOBERMORY Gin from the Isle of Mull-based distillery Tobermory, who is better known for creating Scotch whisky. It features local botanicals including elderflower, tea and wild heather, and a dash of Tobermory new-make spirit, which is used more as another botanical rather than the full base. Initially made in a 60-litre still named Wee Betty, Tobermory Gin has a larger dedicated gin still in a stillhouse separate from the existing whisky-producing space. Inspired by the expressive nature of Mull, we add a splash of spirit from the Tobermory whisky stills to create a unique character for our award winning gin. Distilled on the island with a rich palate of hand-selected botanicals including juniper, tea, heather, elderflower, sweet orange peel, and just a little bit of knowledge from our 220 years of history.
TOBERMORY Gin are delighted to have won the title of Best Scottish Classic Gin at the World Gin Awards. We fought off stiff competition to win the category’s top prize, despite launching only six months ago! Tobermory Gin starts life as a blank canvas. The base spirit we use has been distilled over and over until it is just that. Clean, fresh and ready to take on a colourful array of flavour. All of the botanicals are steeped for a minimum of 24 hours in our base spirit. This is made up of blank canvas (Grain Neutral Spirit) and our very own spirit from our Tobermory whisky.
Tobermory Distillery, originally called the Ledaig Distillery, was established in 1798. The seafront and harbour is famous for its rainbow coloured row of houses and shops that overlook the Sound of Mull, the expanse of water between the east side of the island and mainland Scotland. The distillery over the centuries has opened and closed due to the changes in demand for whisky and was brought under new ownership in 2013. The distillery still retains many of its original features and continues to produce a variety of single malt whiskies. Although a whisky distillery at its heart, in March 2019, the distillery launched its first Scottish Gin, Tobermory Hebridean Gin.
