We are Louise & Greig MacPhail, founders of Kilmartin Glen Spirits. We have had a passion for Gin for many years!
The MacPhail family has had roots in Kilmartin village for over 100 years, we wanted to create a legacy for the MacPhail generations to come within Kilmartin Glen and it made sense to combine our passion for Gin, our history, the abundance of botanicals and history of craft spanning 5000 years on our doorstep.
We live in Kilmartin and are on a journey to achieve our villages 1st Distillery. We feel that this special little area in Argyll which is soaked in an abundance of historical significance is worthy of a sustainable, honest, and ethical Distillery of its very own. We strive to achieve a new landmark that the communities around it will be proud to support and in turn support our communities.
In our gin we use the finest botanicals, and with the help of Mark Williams of Galloway Wild Foods we identified the most sustainable botanicals from Kilmartin Glen. These botanicals are picked by the MacPhail’s – the young generation too! We hope to be distilling ourselves in Kilmartin Glen as soon as we can, until then we have been lucky enough to partner with some of the very best crafts people in the spirit business to create a very special Gin! Our lovely refreshing Gin is bottled in a secluded micro distillery amongst the rich farmlands of Lanark, Scotland.
