City of Aberdeen Distillery & Gin School

Toggle location map

Hidden within a historic railway arch, in the heart of the city, you can find Aberdeen’s first distillery for over 75 years and first ever Gin School (distil your own gin).

As trains rumble overhead, discover the best of Scottish Gin, take a tour of the distillery, enjoy a Gin Tasting Masterclass – or even distil your own full-sized (70cl) bottle of gin at the Gin School Experience. All events are led by the head distiller.

Visit the distillery and sample from the range of demi-johns – flavourful traditional gin recipes and fruit based Aberdeen gins (using locally sourced fruit) that are hand crafted within the distillery. These are very limited, single batch creations and available in a range of sizes to take home.
